The interesting thing to note here is that technology companies are not the only one dabbling in cryptocurrencies. Past reports also indicated that JPMorgan Chase and Company, the largest bank in the USA was also planning to jump in. Some rumors have been floating around indicating that JPMorgan Chase and Co may launch its cryptocurrency. These tweets come just a day after a statement from Jerome Powell, the Chairman for Federal Reserve. According to Reuters, Powell stated that Libra won t move forward till Facebook has addressed some key issues.

Facebook needs to find fixes to issues including privacy, consumer protection, financial stability, and money laundering. If it does not focus on combating these issues, Libra won t really become a reality. Powell revealed that the Federal Reserve was working on forming a group to follow Libra. This group will also coordinate with the Central Banks from other countries. Facebook has not issued a response to the series of Tweets of the statement by Powell.
