Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg will dedicate 2018 to the study of decentralized technologies and crypto currency

And the improvement of the social network.

Every year, the founder of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg chooses his personal goal – for example, in 2016 he was developing a home artificial intelligence “like Jarvis from Iron Man”, in 2015 – he read two books a month, in 2017 – traveled all states America.

In 2018, wrote Zuckerberg on his page, he will not have a separate goal – he will devote a year to the complex problems that confront the social network, and their solution. He will touch upon questions of political philosophy, the work of the media, government and so on.

Among these issues, Zuckerberg pointed out, technology is a special place – and, in particular, decentralized systems, block and crypto-currencies that became popular in 2017.

“In the 2000s, we thought that the technologies would bring decentralization and power to every user of the network. But everything went wrong: a small group of large companies concentrated power in their hands – that is, on the contrary, centralized it. Developers using new technologies – such as encryption and crypto-currencies – are trying to return it to people, but decentralized technologies are more difficult to control. I’m going to study all their pluses and minuses – and understand how we can apply such developments to our services. ”
