Breaking News / Blockchain
Over the past few months, you have probably heard something about an mobile application called FaceApp. This app blew up all over social media so if you haven’t heard about it, not only am I really surprised but here’s a quick recap.
FaceApp is a Russian developed mobile app from Wireless Lab which allowed people to take photos of themselves and make themselves look old, young or as the opposite gender. Like all popular internet tends, FaceApp brought up a lot of controversy in regards to users who uploaded their selfies for editing.
Thanks to Artificial Intelligence, FaceApp can edit user’s images that they upload to the application. The app only became mainstream popular this year despite being released since 2017.
“You grant FaceApp a perpetual, irrevocable, nonexclusive, royalty-free, worldwide, fully-paid, transferable sub-licensable license to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from, distribute, publicly perform and display your User Content and any name, username or likeness provided in connection with your User Content in all media formats and channels now known or later developed, without compensation to you.”
So where are we going with this and what does it have to do with blockchain?
Well, a couple of experts were asked whether blockchain-based dApp could be much better for user privacy and security.
