Major Headlines

 

Facebook’s Potential Blockchain Use

 

CEO of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg recently sat down for an interview with Harvard Law professor Jonathan Zittrain, citing the potential of blockchain for the Facebook business model. The biggest use of blockchain he noted is for storing login credentials at this time. “A use of blockchain that I’ve been thinking about … though I haven’t figured out a way to make this work out, is around authentication and… granting access to your information to different services. So, replacing the notion of what we have with Facebook Connect with something that is truly distributed.” This type of system would provide an alternative to services like Facebook Connect, which is currently the most popular Single-Sign-On (SSO) application. In this way software developers would not have to rely on corporations who store the important data in a centralized way that could be hacked.

 

Major Spanish Telecom Company Using Blockchain

 

Telefonica has begun a pilot system that allows their users to choose whether or not to sell their data. They partnered with Wibson, which developed a decentralized data marketplace that allows individuals to sell “validated” private information. The initial trial will validate data from users of Telefonica subsidiary Movistar in the South American country of Uruguay. “The Wibson platform and token provide consumers an easy way to profit from the personal data they create everyday, while asserting full rights of ownership over their personal information.” Wibson co-founder and CEO Mat Travizano. Wibson launched their marketplace in October of last year, for users in Argentina, Spain, and the U.K. to use a mobile app and their native Wibson Token (WIB).
