UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) — Facebook users could be paid to watch ads, reports The Wall Street Journal. According to the media, this measure could aim at promoting a cryptocurrency that would currently be developed by the social network.
In order to promote its alleged future cryptocurrency, Facebook could use it to pay its users to watch commercials, the Wall Street Journal reported on May 3, citing sources close to the case.
According to the media, Facebook has contacted several financial companies, online merchants and Visa and MasterCard payment systems to implement its own cryptocurrency payment system. The company created by Mark Zuckerberg would be looking for a billion dollars of investment.
With this system, users would also have the opportunity to make purchases on the site, adds The Wall Street Journal.
Facebook did not comment on his information. But in these vows for the New Year 2018, Mr. Zuckerberg had announced that the social network could introduce into his services the possibility of using cryptocurrencies.
