Now it is possible to specify your email for early access to the application
Facebook has announced the launch of a digital wallet Calibra, with which you can pay for your own cryptocurrency social network Libra. The site calibra.com providesinformation on cryptocurrency, its benefits and how to use it.
Calibra will be a separate application for iOS and Android. The ability to use Libra will also be integrated into Facebook products, including WhatsApp and Messenger. Kevin Vale, Calibra’s vice president of product, in conversation with The Verge calledCalibra ’s two main goals: to keep the user’s money safe and to pay worldwide with a much lower commission than traditional calculations.
The site does not indicate the exact launch date of Libra. However, users can specify an email address to sign up for early access. The media, citing sources within the company, noted that Libra testing will be launched before the end of 2019.
For the first time about Facebook cryptocurrency became known in May 2018. Then it was only about internal payments in the social network. In May 2019, the company registered Fintech-firm Libra Networks in Switzerland. As the BBC wrote , Facebook will launch its own cryptocurrency in 2020. In case of successful launch of a cryptocurrency Facebook can become the largest in the world, notes The Verge.
