The company Facebook is considering issuing its own cryptocurrency. On this day, may 11, reported the American TV channel Cheddar.

According to available information, the cryptocurrency will be used for making user payments and purchases inside the platform.

“I was told that the payments — the way to use the blockchain, which they now learn”, — said the journalist Cheddar Alex Heath.

This direction presumably is engaged in Vice-President of Facebook, the former President of PayPal David Marcus.

Recall that in may David Marcus is headed a new division Facebook for the development and implementation of blockchain solutions within the company.

Meanwhile, back in February, Marcus said that Facebook has no plans to launch on the platform system of cryptocurrency payments “in the foreseeable future.” Then he referred to the many problems associated with cryptocurrencies, including high transfer fees and a low speed transaction confirmation.
