Fear of Facebook Coin: China Plans on Creating Own Coin, Possibly WeChat Crypto
The fear of the imminent launch of Facebook’s Coin has made companies in the Tech industry fasten their belt towards securing a competitive role in the emerging fintech industry made up around cryptocurrency.
According to a report from South China Morning Post, People’s Bank of China (PBoC) has joined the league of those quivered by the threat of Libra. This is coming two years after the country officially banned cryptocurrency.
The director of PBoC warned that Libra could pose huge threat to the monetary policy and financial stability of the country as well as the Chinese cross-border payments.
Concerns for possible effect of Facebook launch on the country’s economy has made China’s central bank venture into a research dedicated to creating its own cryptocurrency.
However, observers have posited that WeChat cryptocurrency would be a good starting point to batter the challenge from the 2.3 billion social media platform’s stablecoin.
The fact that WeChat has about 1.1 billion monthly active users and its existing payment system is sure another boost for the plan.
