The central banks, governments and regulators are railing against Facebook’s Libra questioning how will it be regulated. This cryptocurrency aims to roll out in 2020. It will also be backed by a basket of crypto assets to avoid wil swings of Bitcoin and various other virtual units. The PayPal investor relations vice president Gabrielle Rabinovitch said on Thursday that Libra is a non-binding commitment. He further exclaimed that,


“And obviously, I think there’s a lot of work to happen before we get to that point where it becomes something more than just a very exciting idea.” 

The nonprofit Libra Association will supervise this blockchain based coin, maintaining real world asset reserve to keep the value stable. Facebook envisions that the cryptocurrency will deliver stable virtual money that lives on smartphones and will bring nearly a billion “unbanked” people into the financial world. 

Rabinovitch said that,

“The goals and ambitions of Libra are very consistent with PayPal’s overall ambitions in terms of serving the underserved; democratising access to capital. So we very much believe in the potential of Libra.”
