The nation is mellowed with this opportunity as Indians are becoming more tech-savvy and seeking new methods to connect through the web and explore the new approach of a business.

However, this venture will somewhat prove a gateway for Facebook’s cryptocurrency Libra to approach the Indian digital ecosystem in the near future. After the legendary verdict by the Apex Court on RBI 2018 circular, the Indian cryptocurrency exchanges have got a green signal to start their market.

Thus, it is a golden chance for Libra to penetrate the Indian market. According to a source, the Libra Association is planning to launch its digital currency by the end of this year by regulating it to certain countries like France, Germany, and India.

A win-win deal for Facebook and Jio

The exclusive deal is a successful association for both Jio and Facebook platforms as it will provide Facebook core access in the country with the second-largest internet market after China.

The Chairman of the RIL Mukesh Ambani addressed that the collaboration between Jio and Facebook will appreciate the objective of ‘Digital India.’
