@Professional4X your all thinks is negative, can I know the reason? 😉

None of what I said was actually negative.

But rather it was my OPINION on the matter in response to the questions as indicated below.

The questions asked were.

What is the latest update about facbook new currency the 'libra'?
What are you expecting from it? Will, it benefited for the digital world?

What am I expecting from the new digital currency? Nothing.
I have a real world view of investing and understand that it's just another possibility for investing.
Maybe it will fail, maybe it will succeed. Doesn't matter to me either way because if it's going to succeed, then I will go long and invest in it. If it's going to fail then I'll go short and invest against it. It's just basic investment idea.
That IS of course what investors do right?


If it looks too good to be true, it's probably a scam! Let the buyer beware.

Maybe he bought BTC when it was at $20k 😉. That would make me angry too

Actually I obtained several hundred BTC and put them into cold storage in 2011.
It's was just another investment opportunity, which paid off very nicely.

Facebook's Libra cryptocurrency faces more backlash
The Indian government has joined the Libra pushback, a report says.

In April 2018, all entities regulated by the Reserve Bank of India were banned from dealing in cryptocurrencies and virtual coins, although individuals trading currencies like bitcoin remains legal.

India considering not allowing the currency to be traded at all, according to a Bloomberg report Monday.

There seems to be increasing regulatory discussion over crypto. I think this could be good in the long run but may cause problems for the current crop of cryptos. Libra could be best placed to take over

The whole point of Crypto though is that it is not regulated.

Do you know? Libra is a stable coin? This is why, I don’t think it’ll be effective to the retail investors!

@AniLorak did you mean stable coin wouldn't effect on investment markets?

Basically; retail investors aren’t interested about stable coin since the prices are stable here!

That means there is no chance for ICO & IEO, isn’t ?

regulators want to shut it down, but if you actually look into the finer details, libra would be buying government debt (t-bills) from several nations for a somewhat stable value. The issue still remains that you are buying essentially IOU's and expecting it to work out in the end.
