The announcement of Project Libra by Facebook was arguably the biggest news story this year in blockchain and cryptocurrencies; easily among one of the biggest ever in the history of these nascent industries.
Facebook’s plans to launch their very own digital cryptocurrency that would be useable for their 2.41 billion active monthly users, was a tremendous advocate for the progression of digital currency platform payment systems, and considerably improved the adoption of cryptocurrencies for the general public and mainstream media.
Following confirmation that Facebook planned on entering the cryptocurrency markets, the news was a catalyst for a massive surge in price for the markets, although recent regulatory issues have dampened the mood somewhat.

While the launch of Project Libra has received great fanfare from the majority of the crypto community, Facebook remains a deeply divisive organization in the eyes of many individuals.
The entrant of a major social media powerhouse such as Facebook into crypto is a cause for celebration, but the company has very recently been mired in constant controversy due to its handling of personal user data, with the US Federal Trade Commission fining Facebook a record $5 billion for its privacy violations.
As such, the five questions were designed to acknowledge the participant’s view of not only Project Libra, but as Facebook’s entry as a whole.
