Congress representative wants Facebook to suspend cryptocurrency plans
As reported by The Verge, June 18, 2019. The United States Democrat Representative, Maxine Water, wants Facebook to temporarily postpone all implementation plans for its cryptocurrency until Congress investigates it for potential risks.
Maxine Waters, who is chairwoman of the House Financial Services Committee, said the following in a statement: “With the announcement that it plans to create a cryptocurrency, Facebook continues its uncontrolled expansion and extends its reach to the lives of its users. “Given the troubling past of the company, I request that Facebook accept a moratorium on any progress in the development of a cryptocurrency until Congress and regulators have the opportunity to examine these issues and take action.”
As expected, the launch of Libra would ignite foci in government and regulatory institutions, however if Facebook registers as a money services company and obtains the required licenses, all its actions will be in accordance with the law. Presumably Facebook researched and managed to ensure that the development of their new “product” has the ability to cover and comply with regulations.
