Paypal Exits Libra – Mastercard and Visa May Follow

Facebook’s ambitious financial inclusion project, Libra, continues marching forward in spite of mountainous regulatory obstacles, but key members of the Libra Association are having doubts and dropping out. Paypal has now reportedly left the group due to regulatory concerns. Libra representative Dante Disparte has indirectly criticized the move, noting the required “boldness and fortitude to take on an endeavor as ambitious as Libra” and presumably Paypal’s noticeable lack thereof. Visa and Mastercard are now said to be uncertain about the Libra connection as well, raising further questions about the ultimate feasibility of the project.
