Speaking in Facebook terms, crypto exchange firm Huobi sent a “friend request” Randi Zuckerberg, and she accepted the friend request. This was discovered when the Huobi Chain Expert Advisory Committee unveiled the elder sister of the Facebook CEO, Randi Zuckerberg, as a member. It is worthy of note that the sister is an entrepreneur, a writer, and the CEO Zuckerberg media, a content creation firm, which she established about five years ago in New York.
Randi Zuckerberg will be joining the seven other enthusiasts and experts in the advisory committee. The committee is founded on the need to function as the creative thinking sector for the virtual asset trading platforms. Notably, the Huobi Chain Expert Advisory Committee will provide technical advice and also render support during the Huobi Chain Superhero Championship Program’s election period.
The superhero Championship program which was launched sometimes around June this year, as a medium for improving the level of community participation in the development of Huobi’s designed blockchain technology.
The Framework of the Huobi Blockchain
Also, the Huobi Chain Expert Advisory Committee will be responsible for the digital asset exchange counsel as it relates to the governance and development matters of Huobi Chain. Apart from Randi Zuckerberg, some notable members of the committee include the bitcoin advocate cum investor, Jeffery Wernick and the CEO, Co-founder of the bitcoin mining equipment giant Bitmain, Jihan wu.
Despite the mere fact that the seasoned entrepreneur cum author holds no official position in Facebook, the Harvard-trained professional has a work history at the conglomerate during the early days of Facebook evolution. She worked as a media director and spokesperson. It is glaring that there would undoubtedly be no form of clash of interest as Facebook has also shown its biases for the blockchain technology by launching blockchain initiatives, so also is the case of the social media giant’s blockchain head, David Marcus who had to recently give up his position as a board member of Coinbase.
Facebook Showing Interest in Blockchain
The Social media giant, Facebook has been witnessed showing some considerable interest in the blockchain technology as its CEO and Founder, Mark Zuckerberg, was reported to have stated that one of his personal goals for 2018 is to acquire more knowledge of the digital currency and blockchain technology as a whole.
It has also been reported by several mainstream media platforms sometimes this month that David Marcus tendered resignation from the board of digital currency exchange on the basis that it was the “appropriate” step to take.
In May, when Facebook launched its blockchain division, this significantly marked the social network’s founder, having stated his plans to go into the study of the blockchain technology with the purpose of exploring and perhaps proffer a lasting solution to platform’s myriad challenges in 2018.
So far, Facebook has not revealed much details as regards its blockchain project. This must have birthed the recent specular which went around stating that Facebook is considering a partnership possibility with Stellar blockchain; speculation which has long been refuted by both parties which the rumor is centered. A Facebook spokesman was reported to have stated that;
“We are not engaged in any discussions with Stellar, and we are not considering building on their technology.”
