“They are very serious about it,” said one of the people, who asked not to be identified discussing unannounced plans.

Indeed, Facebook began studying blockchain a little more than a year ago.

Facebook’s work on blockchain technology and cryptocurrency will likely take years to materialize and an Initial Coin Offering or ICO commonly held by cryptocurrency startups was highly unlikely.
