Facebook Creates Blockchain Group Headed by Coinbase Board Member

Facebook’s David Marcus announced in a post last Tuesday that he will be leaving his post as head of Messenger to helm a small team tasked to study how blockchain technology can be used for Facebook.

Marcus, who sits as a board member on Coinbase, says that his team will be starting from scratch. The move follows Mark Zuckerberg’s statement last January where he mentioned that the company will be looking into blockchain and cryptocurrencies to see how they can be used for Facebook’s services.
