Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg said that distributed registry technology could allow Internet users to access various services using a single account. The blockchain-based solution can become a competitor of the single sign-on (SSO) technology from Facebook.

“I have not yet thought of exact mechanics, but I think that the blockchain can be used for authentication in different services. Abandon Facebook Connect in favor of true decentralization , ”he said in a conversation with a Harvard professor, Jonathan Zittrain.

Such a solution will allow Internet users to refuse the intermediary when using credentials to interact with various services. In addition, intermediary corporations will lose the ability to cut traffic.

Nevertheless, he stressed that in the case of the scandal with Cambridge Analytica and data leakage, Facebook was able to block unscrupulous developers from accessing personal data of users, and in the case where the latter can manage their data themselves, it will not be possible.

Zuckerberg added that society needs to answer the question whether it is ready to take full responsibility for its data, because in the case of malicious acts there will be no intermediary who can be held accountable.

He also confirmed that the amount of computation that Facebook is producing will be extremely difficult to decentralize.

Earlier, Facebook started searching for blockchain specialists.

El Banco Central de Gran Bretaña reconoció por primera vez el enorme potencial de Bitcoin

Published

on

Por primera vez, un representante del Banco Central de Gran Bretaña comentó positivamente sobre la criptomoneda y Bitcoin , en particular.

Durante mucho tiempo, el regulador financiero británico habló extremadamente negativamente sobre Bitcoin y dudó de su fiabilidad como una forma de preservación del capital.

Por ejemplo, a fines de abril, el Jefe Adjunto de la Oficina de Mercados y Asuntos Financieros del Banco Central del Reino, Dave Ramsden, reafirmó la actitud negativa del regulador hacia la criptosfera.

Sin embargo, esta semana, el economista jefe del Banco Central Británico Andrew Haldane, durante su discurso ante los estudiantes por primera vez, reconoció no solo la confiabilidad, sino también las perspectivas gigantescas de Bitcoin. En su opinión, la mayor criptomoneda podrá reemplazar completamente el efectivo en los próximos 20-30 años.

Haldane dijo que estaba siguiendo el desarrollo de la industria de la criptomoneda y era consciente de la existencia de miles de monedas. Sin embargo, a pesar del hecho de que por primera vez uno de los empleados influyentes del Banco Central británico observó el valor creciente de Bitcoin, es poco probable que la posición de la administración del regulador cambie pronto, según los analistas.

Pero es muy posible que, siguiendo al economista jefe, muchos otros altos funcionarios del Banco Central reconsideren su posición, y esto creará las condiciones para que el regulador británico de Bitcoin sea plenamente reconocido como un instrumento de pago confiable.
