While Zuckerberg emphasized the aim of Libra in helping the “unbanked”, who don’t have access to traditional banking and financial services, Congress focussed on the firm’s existing problems. For instance, Representative Maxine Waters (D-CA) said:”I have come to the conclusion that it would be beneficial for all if Facebook concentrates on addressing its many existing deficiencies and failures before proceeding any further on the Libra project.”Others hit on Libra’s supposed threat to existing fiat currencies. Congresswoman Nydia Velázquez (D-NY) said:”Facebook’s internal motto was for a long time ‘move fast and break things.’ Mr. Zuckerberg, we do not want to break the international monetary system.”According to an article fromThe Verge, Twitter (NYSE:TWTR) CEO Jack Dorsey is similarly skeptical of the Libra project. At a Twitter media event in New York City, Dorsey was asked if he would join the Libra Association. He replied:“Hell no. I don’t know if it’s a gimmick,but a cryptocurrency wasn’t necessary to make that work. It’s not an internet open standard that was born on the internet. It was born out of a company’s intention, and it’s not consistent with what I personally believe and what I want our company to stand for.”Dorsey was generally sympathetic to cryptocurrencies as a whole, however.“I think the internet is somewhat of an emerging nation-state in almost every way. It almost has a currency now in the form of cryptocurrency and bitcoin.”Galaxy Digital Asset Management, a division of Galaxy Digital (TSXV:GLX#CryptoCorner: Twitter (NYSE: $TWTR) CEO Skeptical of Libra, Galaxy Digital (TSXV: $GLXY.V) to Launch BTC Funds and Accenture (NYSE: $ACN), SAP (NYSE: $SAP) and R3 to Build Real-Time Gross Settlement SystemPoint Roberts, WA, Delta BC October 25, 2019 – Investorideas.com, a leader in crypto and blockchain investing news brings you today’s edition of theCrypto Corner podcastand commentary on what’s driving the cryptocurrency market.Listen to today’s Crypto Corner Podcast:https://www.investorideas.com/Audio/Podcasts/2019/102519-CryptoMarket.mp3Read this in full athttps://www.investorideas.com/news/2019/crypto-corner/10251TWTR-GLXY-ACN-SAP.aspGet the Crypto Corner Podcast on iTunesStocks discussed: (NasdaqGS:FB) (NYSE:TWTR) (TSXV:GLXY) (NYSE:ACN) (NYSE:SAP)Forbesreports that Facebook (NasdaqGS:FB) Co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg received considerable scrutiny from Congress on Wednesday with regard to the company’s Libra cryptocurrency project.
