Facebook Global Business Group VP Carolyn Everson joins 'Influencers with Andy Serwer' to discuss the social network's plan to encorporate cryptocurrencies into the platform.

Video Transcript

CAROLYN EVERSON: In terms of the future of cryptocurrency, and NFTs, and digital wallets, I am super passionate and interested in that space, personally. Andy, I think you and I went through an early, early tutorial in that area number of years ago, even around Bitcoin. And we certainly have very, very big plans around being able to facilitate payments between businesses and people and people to people.

I'm not sure if you've ever even used the Messenger device now, where I could send you money, and it's super simple. But we see being able to provide payment services globally as a really important service that we need to provide to both businesses and consumers. And so many people have said-- whether it's Gary Vaynerchuk or Mark Andreessen-- we're on the cusp of the next major, major evolution around the future of fintech. And I think it's a super exciting area.

ANDY SERWER: I remember that tutorial so well, Carolyn.

CAROLYN EVERSON: We should have listened. We should have listened more than we did.

ANDY SERWER: Exactly.

CAROLYN EVERSON: I think about that tutorial and I kick myself probably once a day about, what was I thinking? And I remember going through it with you. And if you look back, it's like, there is something to be said for people that see these trends-- not when everyone is talking about them and every news reporter is giving highlights, but people that see these trends five, 10 years in advance. It's really remarkable, and I think that was one of them.
