● Synopsis:

Theme:Facebook’s Libra Project: Past, Present, and Future 


When Facebook announced the Libra project in mid-2019, the world was taken by surprise: a consortium of private organisations was setting out to issue a new, digital currency running on a blockchain-based financial market infrastructure. It did not take long for the world to react, though: after massive political and regulatory backlash, the Libra Association presented a substantially revised white paper in April 2020. This talk will explore the differences between the two proposals and analyse the impact of a potential launch on the international financial system and the payments landscape.
