It seems Facebook isn’t content with its 50-strong team dedicated to building its proprietary cryptocurrency, as it’s now looking to hire someone for its blockchain counsel.
The firm wants a “proactive team player” that will support the company‘s new initiative into the development of blockchain-based applications.
The successful applicant will be responsible for drafting contracts and providing legal advice to Facebook‘s blockchain initiatives.
Facebook‘s interests in blockchain and cryptocurrency are no longer a secret, so while these hirings are interesting indicators of where Facebook might be taking its blockchain projects, they are not as surprising as they would have been this time last year.
A few months later it was clear the company was going big on blockchain but no one really knew why or what it was working on.
But earlier this month all the news became clear as it became apparent that Facebook was working on its own cryptocurrency.
A dog died on an Air France flight from Amsterdam to Los Angeles, the airline confirmed to Business Insider in an email on Wednesday.
The animal was found in the plane's cargo hold.
Investigators are working to determine its cause of death.
Air France says the dog was loaded correctly, according to its pet policy.
Airlines have faced scrutiny over which pets they will transport and how they transport them.
In 2018, a French bulldog died after suffocating in the overhead bin of a United Airlines flight.
The airline would later change its policies governing pet transport.
Airlines have also faced questions over which animals passengers can classify as emotional-support animals.
Delta Air Lines banned emotional-support animals from long flights in 2018, and United, American Airlines, and Alaska Airlines have also announced new policies around emotional-support animals in recent years.
