Watch Facebook's Libra: Boon or Bust?
Facebook's Libra is the latest addition to the growing market of cryptocurrencies, joining bitcoin, litecoin and ethereum as a decentralized digital cash. But unlike the others, Libra will be connected to the world’s largest social network. The mission of Facebook’s Libra project is to “Reinvent money [and] Transform the global economy. So people everywhere can live better lives.” With its proprietary Calibra wallet, Libra could potentially transform the circulatory system of the global economy. But what does that mean for the value of other cryptocurrencies? What does that mean for the global market? Our panel of experts to discussed the wide-reaching implications of Facebook’s introduction of Libra, the ensuing controversy, and if it will ever actually be introduced into the economy.
