The Libra Coin
The Libra coin will be a digital currency and Calibra will be the digital wallet which is expected to be launched in 2020. This wallet and coin will be introduced to 30% of the entire world's population or 2.38 billion users. Facebook will target at least 1.7 billion people with this new technology. There is a lot of interest from the public for the Facebook coin because people trust Facebook to deliver a reliable product.
The Libra digital coin is essentially a stable coin as it is pegged to currencies such as USD, EUR, Pound, etc. (backed by a reserve of assets so that the value stays stable). The social media internet giant tries to create a more stable cryptocurrency for online transactions. The cost will be very low and fast, and no need for a bank. This technology will also help people in areas where there are no banks or banking facilities which are difficult to reach. By using blockchain technology these transactions will be made much easier.
The Calibra Wallet is a digital wallet which will store your coins. This wallet will be used on the Whatsapp and Facebook Messenger platform. To make the deposits, users may top up their wallets, which means to convert local fiat money into Libra coins. This standalone app (Wallet) may be installed on most of the smartphones, which means you will not need a Facebook account to use Calibra, www.cryptocompare.com reported.
