These companies include major financial organizations like Visa and Mastercard, and internet darlings like PayPal, Uber, Stripe, and Booking.com. Each will invest around $10 million to fund development of the currency, and will become part of the Libra Association, an independent consortium that will govern the digital coin independently of Facebook.
The involvement of major financial firms like Visa and Mastercard is interesting, because cryptocurrencies are typically seen as providing a cheaper alternative to these payment networks.

By CCN Markets: The Italian government is mulling the decision to issue a “parallel currency” in a move that could plunge the eurozone into crisis – and provide the best case yet for mass bitcoin adoption. In the same week, the Italian deputy prime minister proposed a tax grab on cash and valuables stored in safety deposit boxes. These crisis policies expose deep cracks in the fiat monetary system. The move prompted money historian Rebecca L. Spang to call for a new foundation of money. “The time has come for a new, more equitable, version of money.” While she doesn’t

13:23 CryptoCoinsNews.comThis Bitcoin Chart Destroys the Argument That BTC Can’t Be Money

  By CCN Markets: Every skeptic says the same thing: the bitcoin price is too volatile to be a real currency.  And they’ve got a point. Bitcoin’s huge swings make it risky as an investment and difficult as a day-to-day payment method. But it’s slowly changing. As more money flows into bitcoin, it’s becoming less volatile. And that means it’s becoming better money. As you can see, the graph shows extreme daily price movements are much less common in 2018 and 2019. BTC is growing more stable.
