Intricacies of Plan

Facebook, will be creating a stablecoin, a digital currency pegged to the U.S. dollar. It will be used to eliminate volatility. The social media company is far from releasing the coin. This is because it’s still working on its strategy.  The strategy includes a plan for custody assets, or regular currencies that would be held to protect the value of the stablecoin.

The American company, Facebook, was expected to venture into financial services for a while now. In 2014, the company employed former President of PayPal, David Marcus, to be in charge of its Messenger app.

This year, Facebook has been on a hiring spree. In May, the company made Marcus the head of its company’s blockchain initiatives. About 40 persons are employing on its blockchain group, according to LinkedIn.

Move In The Right Direction

The online social media company, Facebook, has about 2.5 billion users worldwide. It also generates about $40 billion in annual revenue and has great experience navigating regulatory issues.

This gives it the opportunity of becoming a stablecoin that stays. If the deal becomes a reality, it would be the first large technology company to launch such a project. Moreover, in the past, the company had a broken relationship with India.
