Facebook's David Marcus leaves Coinbase Board to avoid conflict of interest

Mon, 13 Aug 2018, 05:25 am UTC

David Marcus has resigned from the board of cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase, CoinDesk reported.

Marcus has been serving as vice president at Facebook since 2014. He joined Coinbase’s board in late 2017 saying that the company has the potential to materially change the lives of people around the world.

In May 2018, Marcus announced that he was leaving his role as the head of Messenger to set up a group “to explore how to best leverage Blockchain across Facebook, starting from scratch.”

Marcus told CoinDesk that he resigned from Coinbase’s board "because of the new group I'm setting up at Facebook around blockchain." A Coinbase spokesperson, on the other hand, said that Marcus' decision to resign was to avoid a conflict of interest.

Marcus’ departure from Coinbase comes amid blockchain push at Facebook. According to a recent report from Business Insider, Facebook has held talks with a number of crypto projects, including Stellar, on how it can use the technology.

Earlier this year, Facebook banned all cryptocurrency ads on its platform. However, within months, the social media giant said that it would revise its policy "to allow ads that promote cryptocurrency and related content from pre-approved advertisers."

Update: A Facebook spokesperson told Cheddar that the company is not engaged in any talks with Stellar and is not considering building on its technology.

I love playing the Lottery and I buy tickets every 2 weeks after I get paid. I never wanted to get greedy but I did want enough to live more comfortably. Generally, my luck is pretty terrible. I took a chance when I found a website called [ amberlottotemple.com ] that offers spells to help people. It was the best £415 Pounds I have ever spent! I had to save up for a couple of weeks to be able to afford the spell. I had the spell targeted towards the National Lottery. I heed to DR Amber instructions to buy the ticket after 3days and have faith that I would be the winner. I kept my faith very strong just as DR Amber told me to do. The next morning I got up and saw an email from the National Lottery saying, "Good news, you've won a prize". Today my wife and I are proud winners of £184,262,899.10 Million Pounds. We are here to Appreciate the good deeds of DR Amber. You can reach out to him by email .…. [email protected]
