Other well-known and reputable companies such as Wechat, Signal, Line, etc. in China, Japan, South Korea are going to be engaged in this adventurous arena. Coins generated in this computer network get decentralized and the manufacturing company will not have any supervision or dominance on them; however, some critics of entering famous companies to the field of cryptocurrencies believe that publishing Bitcoins clearly on the part of these companies is still an inhibition for the total decentralization and question the feature of decentralization of the world of cryptocurrencies to some extent. Moreover, some believe that the coins generated by Facebook will be similar to the Ripple cryptocurrency (XRP).
