Cryptocurrency exchange Huobi "invited friends" of one of the members of Mark Zuckerberg's family, and this invitation was accepted.
Randi Zuckerberg, elder sister of Facebook's founder, has got on the list of the members of the Huobi Chain Expert Committee ― the blockchain-project of the cryptocurrency exchange with the same name. The last five years, Randi Zuckerberg is CEO of her own company Zuckerberg Media.
Commission, which called Zuckerberg and seven other experts, are to become a think-tank platform for trading digital assets. The Huobi Chain Expert Commission will also provide professional advice during the Huobi Chain Superhero Championship ― project created two months ago for attracting the community to develop a Huobi public blockchain.
Randi Zuckerberg's company will be represented in this Commission by such a well-known personalities in the cryptocurrency world like the Chief Executive Officer of mining company Bitmain Jihan Wu, and large bitcoin investor Jeffrey Wernick.
Despite the fact that Randi Zuckerberg was one of the first employees of Facebook, working as a Press Secretary and Director of marketing, at this moment she has no direct relationships with working in this social network. Besides, Facebook is already working on creating its own blockchain, so Randy Zuckerberg's participaion in the Huobi Chain project will not cause a conflict of interest. Not so long ago a similar situation occurred with the head of the Facebook's blockchain-unit David Marcus, who was forced to withdraw from the Board of Directors of the Coinbase cryptocurrency exchanges.
The launch of Facebook's blockchain-division was carried out in May this year. Today, the company continues to explore technology of the distributed registry to subsequently apply it to address potential problems of social networking.
Until recently, Facebook chose to keep all details in secret, which are relating with its own blockchain project, that generated various rumors. For example, some media published the news that Facebook was developing a blockchain based on Stellar fork, but the company quickly gave a rebuttal.
