It seems like it’s not just you and me who is interested in cryptocurrencies. Mark Zuckerberg the founder of Facebook has also shown a deeper interest in learning more about the cryptocurrency.

It’s not the only thing that he is interested in doing in 2018. If you have been following him on Facebook you must be aware of his early challenges which he has been doing since 2009.

So, when the entire world is divided into two groups, one favouring it and the other against these cryptocurrencies, Mark Zuckerberg’s stand on cryptocurrency would positively impact on the growth of cryptocurrencies in future and also its acceptance at a global level.

Every year I take on a personal challenge to learn something new. I've visited every US state, run 365 miles, built an…
