Outlook survey: Facebook’s cryptocurrency Libra won’t release in 2020
Most respondents to The Block’s 2020 Outlook Survey trust Facebook’s cryptocurrency Libra will not be dispatched this year.
Among the 106 respondents drawn from the world of funding contributing, monetary services, and the crypto industry in general – 72 or 67.9% of them said “no” when asked whether Libra will launch in 2020, while third-fourth or 31.1% of them said “yes.”
While The Block’s study did not concentrate on the potential factors that may decide if Libra goes live this year, ongoing news improvements around the task allude to potential headwinds.
For instance, the leader of Germany’s national bank, Jens Weidmann, approached banks to improve quicker and less expensive payments to counter Libra. In December 2019, U.S. Central bank representative Lael Brainard censured Facebook’s project, featuring “a core set of legal and regulatory challenges.”
The Libra Association keeps on working ahead. A week ago, it built up a five-part controlling council that will coordinate Libra’s specialized guide.
