Facebook Is Planning to Launch Crypto-Currency in 2020 - What Is GlobalCoin?

Facebook is getting into the crypto-currency game.

The social network platform plans to set up a digital payment system, which is being called GlobalCoin internally, in about a dozen countries by the first quarter of 2020, according to the BBC.

Detailed plans for the currency are expected to be outlined this summer. Founder Mark Zuckerberg reportedly already met with Bank of England governor Mark Carney to discuss opportunities and risks.

Facebook’s plan is to create a digital currency that provides affordable and secure ways of making payments, regardless of whether a user has a bank account, enabling people to change their currency into digital coins.

They are also in talks with online merchants to accept the currency as payment in exchange for lower transaction fees.

Concerns include security, especially considering Facebook’s recent personal data breaches. The U.S. Senate & Banking Committee also penned an open letter to Mark to ask how the currency will work, and how consumers will be protected and secured.

The move follows Facebook’s Credits program a decade ago, which allowed people to buy items in apps on the site. The program closed after less than two years.

Mark Zuckerberg Breaks Silence on User Data Breach

Mark Zuckerberg has finally spoken after news broke that Cambridge Analytica took data from millions of Facebook users.

If you don’t know, Cambridge Analytica is a data analysis firm that was used by Donald Trump during his presidential campaign for voter-targeting services. Apparently, 50 million accounts were targeted.

“We have a responsibility to protect your data, and if we can’t then we don’t deserve to serve you,” Mark said after a ton of backlash. “I’ve been working to understand exactly what happened and how to make sure this doesn’t happen again. The good news is that the most important actions to prevent this from happening again today we have already taken years ago. But we also made mistakes, there’s more to do, and we need to step up and do it.”

“I started Facebook, and at the end of the day I’m responsible for what happens on our platform. I’m serious about doing what it takes to protect our community. While this specific issue involving Cambridge Analytica should no longer happen with new apps today, that doesn’t change what happened in the past. We will learn from this experience to secure our platform further and make our community safer for everyone going forward,” Mark continued. “I want to thank all of you who continue to believe in our mission and work to build this community together. I know it takes longer to fix all these issues than we’d like, but I promise you we’ll work through this and build a better service over the long term.”
