The long-awaited Facebook-led digital currency Libra is preparing to launch as early as January, reports the Financial Times.
Libra’s exact launch date will depend on when the project receives approval to operate as a payments service from the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority, but could come as early as January, according to the paper.
“I can see the new Libra working as an ordinary, regulated payments processor — PayPal, but it’s Facebook.” David Gerard, a historian of digital currencies and author of Attack of the 50-foot Blockchain, has said.
Of note, Libra isn’t actually a single digital currency. It plans to launch a series of different digital coins, each backed by a different government currency one for one. It will also build a Libra coin that is a “digital composite” of some of those coins, which will be available for cross-border transactions and in countries with no digital currency..........https://finanz.dk/what-a-horror-facebooks-libra-currency-to-launch-next-year/
Похоже, что Швейцария будет пока заправлять, и что начнётся уже в январе. Будет работать как ПэйПэл - очень хорошо.
