Facebook is Moving Forward With its Very Own Cryptocurrency

One of the many ways in which Facebook has ended up changing the way we go about our daily lives is that it has made it easier for us to shop around for things as well as earn money.

In an attempt to make these transactions easier as well as dip its toes into the world of finance, Facebook has assembled a team of 50 people who will be working on a cryptocurrency that can be used on the platform itself. There are a few problems that will be faced here, especially when you consider the fact that cryptocurrencies are notorious for not being all that stable.

If this ends up working out it will be a very powerful feather that the social media platform will now have in its cap. It will extending the usage of this currency to WhatsApp as well.

According to the Times study, Telegram and Signal apps are also on the verge to launching their own digital currency system.
