At present, little is known about Facebook’s Libra project. Juan Villaverde, an expert from Weiss Rating, believes that Facebook Coin’s rivals are PayPal and credit cards, not cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin. He believes that Facebook’s possible logic is this: “Investigate the current global financial system to identify inefficiencies; recognize that traditional financial institutions in many parts of the world are underserved, many do not have any bank accounts; recognize existing payments Systems are often vulnerable to hacking and theft; some of the key features of blockchain or other types of distributed ledger technology are used to address these inefficiencies and serve as the backbone of new payment systems.”
The cryptocurrency exchange currency company also released a research report yesterday, saying that Facebook’s possible cryptocurrency will promote the “large-scale application” of cryptocurrency, which will also subvert the payment industry.
