Critical revision in Libra
On the other hand, Facebook made significant changes to its vision of creating a global stable cryptocurrency backed by various currencies and government bonds a few weeks ago. Accordingly, the new goal in Libra is to develop various stable cryptocurrencies, each of which will correspond to a different fiat currency. Libra, which is still planning to issue a stable cryptocurrency backed by multiple currencies, will improve it to be backed by new stable cryptocurrencies rather than the bank-held currencies.
