Facebook announcement of its Cryptocurrency this morning called Libra will be govern by the Libra Association. However, they also announced an interesting fintech product which they call Calibra.

Calibra will let you send Libra to almost anyone with a smartphone, as easily and instantly as you might send a text message and at low to no cost.

Those wanting to use the Calibra platform will be able to top up their account with U.S. dollars via some of the payment providers working as part of the Libra Association, then transfer money using the encrypted Libra network to contacts using Facebook’s popular suite of chat apps.

Users will need a government-issued ID to sign up to Calibra and data held on Facebook will, for the most part, be siloed from Facebook account information. The company said that it will offer users “automated systems that will proactively monitor activity” to detect fraud.

According to Facebook, Calibra will not share account information or financial data with Facebook or any third party without customer consent.

Facebook promises if someone fraudulently gains access to your account and you lose some Libra as a result, they’ll offer you a refund.

Calibra is how Facebook intends to make money off Libra, a digital currency it says it does not want to control, despite having created it.

  1. A new motivation for account hackers, as facebook is the easiest account to hack these days. As good as this is, it is just another way for people to loose not just their identities on facebook, but their finances as well. Correct me if I am wrong but Facebook is close to poor in account recovery assistance.

  2. Good. This’ll Make Facebook To Be More High In Security. This Is Because Using Crypto Calls For Great Security Challenge And More Sleepless Night For Facebook.
