"There are a lot of regulatory issues that need to be addressed and they've got to make sure there's a solid business case, so we've got to be careful before we jump to conclusions," Lowe stated.
    "I have long thought that a kind of cryptocurrency would not take off in Australia because we already have a very, very efficient electronic payments system that allows anyone of us to make bank payments to another person in five seconds just knowing their mobile phone number," Lowe said Thursday, June 20.

  • 08:31 Facebook, WhatsApp And Instagram May Be Banned By Countries After Libra's Launch, Says Caitlin Long

    Co-founder of the Wyoming Blockchain Coalition and a blockchain evangelist, Caitlin Long, recently spoke about Libra during an interview with WhatBitcoinDid.
    Long stated that Libra's launch would result in local currencies taking a hit and facing devaluation, if people actually started using the cryptocurrency. The blockchain evangelist further stated that she "suspects" the central banks of developing countries of being "nervous" about Facebook's own digital currency. However, she stated that the developed world's central banks "don't seem to be as nervous."
    She further stated that this competition would force central banks to maintain the value of their fiat currencies. This was followed by Long speaking about whether countries would ban the cryptocurrency. She stated that that country could ban the cryptocurrency, adding that this was the risk Mark Zuckerberg was taking with Facebook. She also said that Facebook getting into the money business could potentially risk a ban of Facebook, WhatsApp, and Instagram.
