Crypto Industry News:
Bank of England CEO Mark Carney defended Facebook’s choice to create a new currency. He highlighted the disadvantages of the current traditional financial system. Due to inefficiencies in payments, Carey believes that companies like Facebook should be involved in projects like Libra.
More specifically, he criticized the high costs of moving money, claiming that they penalize small businesses and can cost up to 200 basis points per transaction, except that they are processed too slowly.
“This is not enough these days. These payments should be immediate, they should be the same as for online banknote exchanges. They should be practically cost-free and 100% resistant” – he said.
Carney acknowledges that the problem can be solved in many ways, and notes that the challenge is “to bring online and other payments to the level that is found in many large emerging economies and several advanced economies.”
However, he also warned companies that want to try to solve this problem, noting that changes in space will be thoroughly investigated by the authorities.
