VKontakte to launch its own cryptocurrency

Although the Russian social networking platform has not yet made a specific decision, it is working in a project to launch its own digital asset

VKontake (VK), one of the most popular social networking platforms in Russia, could launch its own cryptocurrency this year as reported by local agencies.

Although the platform has not yet made a final decision on how to issue its own virtual currency, the project is already under development.

A fenced source said he was familiar with the company’s plans. This person told the media that this project intends to include the creation of individual accounts in cryptocurrencies for users of the platform.

VK Pay, the potential name of this new alternative, could include a service so that users can send cryptocurrencies to the authors of the messages they like.

Many social networking platforms are reaching the current trend in the digital asset industry. Some examples include the main social networking platforms such as WhatsApp, Telegram, Line and Kakao.
