eBay, Mastercard, VISA and Paypal are four of the world’s most powerful companies. Along with Stripe, a Californian financial software company, they are also the first early backers to leave Facebook’s Libra project. But is Facebook’s plan to launch a cryptocurrency doomed or will it push through regulation to help create the world’s biggest bank? In episode 060 of Social Minds, we’re joined by Social Chain’s instant messaging lead, Dilen Pattni, and Josh Riddett, the CEO of Easy Crypto Hunter. Both have a comprehensive knowledge of blockchain technology and a deeper interest than most in what Mark Zuckerberg is up to. They discuss blockchain, bitcoin and why not every international government is averse to Facebook’s plans, even if the G7 are.
