Industry insiders: Facebook’s cryptocurrency libra will benefit bitcoin – and destroy the world’s banks
A couple of weeks ago, Facebook revealed that they will release their own cryptocurrency, libra.
Since then, it has gotten both negative comments and praise from the crypto world. Even Facebook’s own partners have stated that they doubt the project. In addition, much has been speculated about whether the project is good for bitcoin.
Makes more people turn to bitcoin
Now, more opinions from the crypto industry emerge about Libra’s future and its relation to bitcoin.
“I believe that Libra will allow users to be more inclined to use bitcoin as a peer-to-peer payment system”, crypto analyst and blogger Ryan Waldoch writes in a report for research firm Seeking Alpha, Cointelegraph reports.
Will destroy banks
One who believes that libra will be a success is Arthur Hayes, CEO of the big crypto exchange Bitmex.
“I think it will destroy commercial and central banks”, he says in an interview with Bloomberg.
