Cryptocurrency exchange Huobi sent a “friend request” to a member of the Zuckerberg clan, and that friend request has been accepted. This is after Randi Zuckerberg, the elder sister to the founder of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, was unveiled as a member of Huobi Chain Expert Advisory Committee. The serial entrepreneur and author is currently the CEO of Zuckerberg Media, a New York-based content creation firm she founded five years ago.
Zuckerberg will join seven other experts on the committee, which is designed to serve as a think tank for the digital asset trading platform. Notably, the Huobi Chain Expert Advisory Committee will provide professional advice as well as support during the Huobi Chain Superhero Championship Program’s election phase. The Huobi Chain Superhero Championship Program was launched a little over two months ago as a way of enhancing community participation in the development of Huobi’s planned public blockchain.
Additionally, the Huobi Chain Expert Advisory Committee will offer the digital asset exchange counsel with regards to the governance and development matters of Huobi Chain. Besides Zuckerberg, other experts on the advisory committee include investor and bitcoin evangelist, Jeffrey Wernick, and the co-founder and CEO of bitcoin mining giant Bitmain, Jihan Wu.
Though she currently holds no position at Facebook, the Harvard-educated professional was an early employee of the social media giant, serving as a spokesperson and a marketing director. With Facebook already having launched a blockchain initiative there will thus be no appearances of conflict of interest, like was the case with the social media giant’s blockchain head, David Marcus, who had to quit his position as a board member of Coinbase recently.
