Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is exploring blockchain technology for users of the world's largest social media platform. If implemented, Facebook's 1.52 billion daily active users would interfere with blockchain technology when logging into their accounts.
In an interview with Harvard Professor Jonathan Zittrain, Zuckerberg expresses particular interest in improving authentication by using the underlying technology of Bitcoin and cryptocurrency: blockchain.

“ It's a lot easier to hold large companies like Facebook or Google than a series of third-party apps. You also have more cases of abuse, and the recourse would be much harder. ”
In February, Facebook acquired Chainspace, a blockchain firm founded by researchers from University College London. Sources tell Cheddar that the investment was "acquiring," designed to harvest the chainspace team where developers have been working on a distributed web of blockchains for scalability, speed and privacy.
