Libra, Facebook’s token: Good, bad or ugly?

Facebook announced the Libra blockchain token. Great for blockchain adoption, or an attempt at putting monetary control in corporate hands?

About this Event

A consortium of social media companies, banks, VC’s, payment providers and other large technology and financial companies have announced Libra, a blockchain token with the goal to bank the 1.7 billion unbanked. Blockchain and decentralisation enthusiasts have vastly different opinions about how good, bad or ugly this is. We have found some leading experts in and outside of the blockchain industry to share some insights with you.

BerChain e.V. and Factory Berlin invite you to join for an evening discussion about Libra, the new ‘Facebook’ blockchain token: A great initiative to bank the unbanked, or a poor attempt and pseudo decentralisation?

Prepare your questions to the panels, and download the white paper here.
