Facebook looking to hire lawyer with blockchain experience

Facebook has recently posted an advertisement for a senior lawyer who has experience in blockchain issues. This could well be linked to the company's recent hints about plans to enter the crypto space.

According to an ad on Facebook's own Careers page, a new senior lawyer is needed to work from the company's California headquarters. They "will be responsible for drafting and negotiating a wide variety of contracts related our blockchain initiatives, including partnerships needed to launch new products and expand such products internationally...You will also advise clients on the various legal risks, business strategies and other issues related to commercial transactions and general operations."

The preferred candidate for this role will also be someone with an "interest in mobile and alternative payments, emerging payments technology, the payments industry, and the eCommerce industry".

Reports first started circulating about Facebook entering the crypto space back in 2018. The rumour was that the company would be launching a stablecoin, and these were more or less confirmed in a recent New York Times report. Facebook also recently acquired Chainspace, a UK-based blockchain research company focused on scalability, and a number of other positions linked to blockchain have been advertised.
