Looks like the big news of the week is Libra is pretty much dead in the water. It's not really surprising considering what company is starting it. You can't really be a company that sells users data and then come out with a cryptocurrency and expect to thrive. Not to mention all of the regulations that will be required considering they're an actual legitimate company.

Regulatory aspects no longer seem to meet that acceptance.
BAKKT's news stayed away from the news.

Even if libra does not see the light, it is a real start to the idea of ​​the creation of a central cryptocurrency by a coalition of companies and will not take a long time until the establishment of such currencies.
The advantages offered by such currencies are unique so it will be the competition of giant money transfer services.

I'm fairly certain they only made it to give people the opportunity to send money to people through Facebook Messenger. I don't really have a need for that. All of my friends that I would want to send crypto to all have multiple currency wallet addresses and even Paypal accounts with Paypal debit cards tied to them. So, if I really needed to get some money to someone in another state, I would just send it for free through Paypal(I've done it many times). I just don't see the interest in it from people. First of all, it's a centralized currency and the people in control of it are Facebook, no thank you.

Just after the Libra coin was announced a lot of news not favoring them are showing up from left to right. Now we don't know what exactly is the reason why this credit card and payment processing companies are pulling out  so this might just be a contract or agreement issue but the headline itself will just send a really bad image overall for Facebook's project. Aside from that their head of product also pulled out of the project but like I said we don't know the full story here so I might still wait for some updates before seeing if Libra will be a failed project for Facebook. Mark Zuckerberg might start to think on another new plan if he really wants to join the cryptocurrency game because with governments, countries, and even companies are not favoring him this only tells that they don't like the idea of Facebook having its own cryptocurrency at all.
