Now comes even more criticism, this time from the other side of the Atlantic.
Wants to be their own country
It is the Conservative British MP Damian Collins who is suspicious of Facebook’s ambitions with the project.
“For me, libra shows that Facebook is trying to transform itself into its own country”, Damian Collins says to the Financial News. The MP is also skeptical of Facebook’s handling of users’ account information.
Damian Collins is chairman of the parliamentary committee responsible for digitisation issues. The remaining members of the committee are also critical of Facebook’s plans, the Financial News reports.
