Already an ambitious project Facebook will now try to meet its 2020 launch date without the help of eBay, Visa, Mastercard, or PayPal - the four largest payment providers in the world - and under the watchful eye of regulators which have already flagged several concerns with Libra. Some larger companies who are now members of the association include Uber, Lyft, Spotify and Vodafone.
It was recently announced that Mastercard, Visa, eBay and Stripe have all made a decision to step out and wait Libra out a little bit.
Ohio's state Rep. Warren Davidson has suggested that Facebook could have looked to add Bitcoin to its Calibra wallet instead of trying to create its own cryptocurrency, Libra. But while Libra gets off the ground gradually, China is looking for an alternative to burst into the scene.
The new development by China comes at a time when social media giant Facebook has forged ahead and named a five-member board to oversee its Libra cryptocurrency with the support of21 remaining backers despite last-minute defections. "Stripe is supportive of projects that aim to make online commerce more accessible for people around the world".Читайте также: Alberta government won't seek meeting with teen enviro-activist Greta Thunberg
A draft report from the Group of Seven (G7) nations - France, the U.S., Japan, Canada, Italy, Germany and the United Kingdom - has said that no stablecoin project, including Facebook's Libra, can go ahead until it is proven safe and secure. "It appears that Facebook is working to create a global financial system that is meant to rival the USA dollar.I hope to hear what steps the SEC has taken is doing to ensure that Libra is appropriately and rigorously regulated".
"We believe that the design of the Libra ecosystem has the potential to address a number of societal needs", a PayU spokesperson said, in a statement sent out by the Libra Association.
Libra's potential impact on the market remains to be seen, but Facebook has extricated itself from tougher situations than the one now faced by Libra. Of course, it's not great news in the short term, but in a way it's liberating. It was all started with PayPal that became the first company to leave the Libra Association at the beginning of this month.
"It has been an incredibly important catalytic event to sort of shake the tree when libra showed up out of the blue, and that forced us to think hard about what we do". Concerns have ranged from fears that the Libra currency will be used to facilitate criminal activity all the way to the asset posing a direct threat to the hegemony of national currencies.
Recently, more banks have been showing interest to join the Libra Association.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
