Facebook’s cryptocurrency, the mysterious stablecoin’s Libra network was launched in Switzerland. The coming altcoin news will show you some more information about the project.
The project was extremely secretive but it has just risen from the shadows. The Social media giant turned to the perfect crypto-hub country-Switzerland earlier this month in order to register the Libra Network subsidiary firm. The firm will follow Facebook’s blockchain payments data and will provide investing services.
The new fintech firm will not be the only one it its focus. The operations of the firm will have a say in ‘’investing, financing, identity management, analytics, big data, blockchain, and other technologies.’’ The filings show that the Libra Network is very committed to ‘’identity management’’ and even Mark Zuckerberg stated at the time:
“You basically take your information, you store it on some decentralized system, and you have the choice of whether to log in in different places, and you’re not going through an intermediary.”
Facebook’s cryptocurrency plans are now accelerating especially with the registration of the Libra Networks in Switzerland. According to the New York Times reports, back in March Facebook’s stablecoin was being described as a ‘’basketcoin’’ which means it is a token pegged to multiple assets and especially fiat currencies. Also, the stablecoin’s development and its progress will reach out to multiple crypto exchanges with regard to listing the coin and the coin will be publicly released by the end of the second quarter of 2019.
As reported in the latest cryptocurrency news, Facebook was looking to raise $1 billion from VC firms for their stablecoin. At the time, a reporter from the NY Times pointed out:
“Given that one of the big allures of blockchain projects is the decentralization, getting outside investors could help Facebook present the project as more decentralized and less controlled by Facebook.”
In other Facebook news, the company CEO Mark Zuckerberg received a letter earlier this month that requested him to provide an answer to multiple questions related to the company’s crypto venture. The senators who asked the questions were interested in how the social media giant was going to approach privacy for his stablecoin but there was no clear answer from the CEO.
Binance Removes US Resident Ban: Launching In “A Month Or Two”
“3. Prohibition of use By accessing and using the Services, you represent and warrant that you are not on any trade or economic sanctions lists, such as the UN Security Council Sanctions list, designated as a “Specially Designated National” by OFAC (Office of Foreign Assets Control of the U.S. Treasury Department) or placed on the U.S. Commerce Department’s “Denied Persons List”. Binance maintains the right to select its markets and jurisdictions to operate and may restrict or deny the Services in certain countries at its discretion.”When comparing the wording to the one uploaded in June, it is clear that Binance removes US resident ban. The previous text read that "Binance is unable to provide services to any U.S. person," - which is why the difference is obvious.
China’s Digital Fiat Currency Is Not A Real Cryptocurrency
“Since last year, the staff at the Digital Currency Research Lab have been working 996 to develop the system. We can say the CBDC is now ready to launch at one’s call," was his speech, later shared by many best cryptocurrency news sites.The CBDC with this aims to replace MO, meaning cash in circulation through a two-tier system. The central bank will issue the digital yuan only to commercial banks, who will further issue it to the public. Meanwhile the PBoC and its Digital Currency Research Lab are the ones standing behind China's digital fiat currency - along with more than 50 patent applications which are all either invented or co-invented by Yao Qian. One patent application reads:
“The emergence of digital currency is an inevitable trend. So far, privately issued digital currency bears the features of anonymity and volatility. Central banks must take their impacts on the payments, monetary systems and financial stability seriously. As such, it’s inevitable for central banks to push for digitized fiat currencies to optimize their circulation.”However, physical cash is still arguably the only form of fiat money inside China that can remain anonymous. We can see that China's digital fiat currency is not close to cryptocurrency - and the only third-party methods which are compared to bank wire can be offered by companies like Alibaba or WeChat - both requiring real-name verification authenticated by users' IDs as well as additional banking information.
“Existing M0 (banknotes and coins) are subject to counterfeit and money laundering risks. … The [CBDC] system should follow the existing rules about anti-money laundering and anti-terrorism financing imposed on cash, and should report to the PBoC on large amounts and suspicious transactions,” Mu emphasized in a speech.

XRP Will Defy The Altcoin Apocalypse: Ripple Chart Analysis
"Although many of the technicals like RSI, and position relative to moving averages looks like XRP is severely oversold and could bounce, traders should be cautious because the token has been falling out of favor with many crypto market participants, and there are many competing projects with similar characteristics and arguably a much better value proposition that have come to market."
