Can They Really Stop Facebook’s Libra?

"In these conditions, we cannot authorize the development of Libra on European soil” - French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire

Libra is at a regulatory and developmental standstill and International regulators are stomping out any remaining embers left behind by Facebook’s fire. Swiss and French financial regulators are now tightening their strings on the categorization of Libra under current law. These sanctions come just two months after Facebook was issued by the US House Financial Services Committee to stop all development on Libra.

Skirting Regulation

Centralized authority, a large database of valuable information, and mediocre security. These are three things that Facebook has, Bitcoin opposes, and the government needs to regulate. Facebook has attempted the bare minimum at self regulation, looking to keep up appearances but failing to provide substance.

The Libra Association has attempted to avoid much of the scrutiny from the Swiss regulators (FINMA) by applying under a payment system. FINMA however has now officially classified Libra as financial market infrastructure requiring them to spend more money ensuring continued liquidity of treasury funds.

As France and the European Central Bank discuss the creation of a government ran digital currency, they have issued a stop on Libra or face an outright ban. Facebook has used their attempted registration in Switzerland to avoid many of the tough European banking laws, however that hasn’t pleased legislators.

Does It Matter?

Stopping Facebook’s Libra shows several powerful reasons as to why global adoption of Bitcoin is important. Facebook’s Libra was hoping to bring decentralized finance and micropayments to the masses. They are attempting to fill a void that both Ethereum and Bitcoin fill, but on fully decentralized scales. Should the centralized approach, the continued evolution of Bitcoin and Ethereum may be great enough to fill the void of stalled Libra.
