Libra’s Recent changes
In addition to the appointment of a new CEO, the Libra Association has also started the process of licensing the payment system with the FINMA. The company has thus shifted to a more operational phase.
The Association has also updated the key concepts of the future cryptocurrency. Many people referred to as “Libra 2.0,” a new blank paper that highlighted some big differences. Now, Libra aims to build a series of different digital coins each backed by a different government currency, rather than introducing a single new currency.
Furthermore, the previous “permitless” concept, which let anyone help manage the network without the supervision of central authorities, was abandoned. The new version is a closed network that can only work with authorized partners.
