Facebook libra banned in France and Germany


Yaaaay, screw them :smiley:

I am not surprised to see France and Germany argue to the introduction on their ground of a new currency with concepts such as the “sovereignty of nations”. The French deputies were so angry when they first heard of Libra ^^
Sill, I’m very pleased to see that they did not bend the knee to Facebook this time!

I found a nice article from co-workers of George Danezis, that stopped building privacy-enabling technology to become chief scientist of Calibra: https://medium.com/@nymtech/libra-is-blockchain-virtue-signalling-at-its-worst-centralised-not-private-and-good-for-5591ff7cc524

The guys did not mince their words, I liked that.
