Francis Hougen, Facebook’s former product manager and whistleblower, revealed that the refuge in Puerto Rico is “good for the future” because of his timely investment in cryptocurrency. Whistleblower, who recently made headlines as Facebook’s “betrayal of democracy,” revealed his crypto investment in an interview, where he stressed that he did not trust anyone financially. Haugen did not disclose the specifics of his crypto-related investment, but noted it to put an end to financial-based rumors.
In an interview with the New York Times, Hagen revealed that he went to Puerto Rico to join his “crypto friends”, in addition to his current health problem. He also noted that the eBay founder is being funded by non-profit organizations backed by Omidia, but that the aid only covers his travel expenses.
Hagen, who worked as a product manager at Facebook’s civic misinformation group, provided documents used for months in the Wall Street Journal investigation, and appeared before the Senate inquiry into the harm Instagram has done to teenage girls. Hogen says Facebook’s closed design will be as blind as the general public, even from its own oversight board.
Whistleblower accused Facebook of knowing how to secure its sites, but not “because they put their astronomical profits in front of people.”
During his testimony, Haugen suggested that Facebook had made changes in “dangerous” ways that could lead to divisions in the community, and that these changes were making people return to the stage.
This is not the first time a whistleblower has been praised for defying all the misinformation of cryptocurrency. Edward Snowden, a former NSA and CIA computer intelligence consultant and one of the most well-known whistleblowers he has been able to financially sustain in the past due to his investments in Bitcoin.
