I didn’t want to write a post about Libra.
I’m a crypto blogger and, in my professional opinion, Libra isn’t a cryptocurrency. I mentioned it briefly yesterday, as a joke, but I can see that I will have to mention it a few more times.
As an impartial, objective and knowledgeable third-party, I see it as my responsibility to correct wrong opinions in the crypto world. I can’t always convince people, but I can give them a fighting chance and I can then sleep soundly at night, knowing that I have at least tried to help. I have already seen some very

You don’t have to have a Facebook account to use Libra.
That’s the hands-off approach the social media giant is working toward as it announces its new blockchain and the token of the same name that will run on top of it.
While Tuesday’s announcement is still early days, the scope of the project is far-reaching. It includes a new Facebook subsidiary, Calibra, and an independent consortium, Libra Association, backed by some of tech’s biggest names.
“Implied in this project is that wherever the Visa or Mastercard logo are accepted, Libra would follow suit,” Dante Disparte, head of policy and communications for the Libra Association, told CoinDesk in an exclusive interview. “In so many ways it’s a great leap forward for cryptocurrencies and, in many respects, a mainstreaming of this asset class.”
The British multinational financial services company has reportedly launched its Digital Accounts Receivable Tool (HSBC DART), based on tokenization technology developed by Australian blockchain-powered Fintech company Identitii Ltd., the firm said in the announcement.
According to the statement, HSBC DART was developed for HSBC’s Global Liquidity and Cash Management (GLCM) business and deploys Identitii’s approach to tokenization within HSBC’s existing infrastructure of receivables to enhance involved processes.
With the long-awaited Libra white paper, Facebook is showing off its blockchain smarts, and making a bid for crypto credibility.
Released Tuesday morning, the 29-page paper describes a protocol designed to evolve as it powers a new global currency. More than a year in the making, the document opens by trumpeting the new blockchain’s ambitious goal:
“The Libra Blockchain is a decentralized, programmable database designed to support a low-volatility cryptocurrency that will have the ability to serve as an efficient medium of exchange for billions of people around the world.”
Crypto analytics firm Coin Metrics partnered with Social Market Analytics (SMA) to collaborate on a feed of real-time sentiment towards cryptocurrency based on social media data, according to a press release on June 17.
The new partnership intends to collect and analyze data posted by crypto community on social media in order to provide a new tool to help crypto traders to track social media sentiment data to build their portfolio strategies.
The new product will initially target sentiment data solely on social media giant Twitter, Coin Metrics CEO Tim Rice confirmed to Cointelegraph, adding that the firms are currently not considering integration of the service into Facebook.
India has asked WhatsApp to digitally fingerprint every message sent on its platform without breaking its encryption, according to two senior government officials, as it seeks to ensure traceability of all content shared on the Facebook-owned messaging application.
WhatsApp should be able to identify where a message originated and how many people have read and forwarded it without having to read the message, the officials said. The government has been insistent in its demand for traceability of WhatsApp messages after misinformation and rumours around child kidnappings on the platform led to a spate of lynchings across India in 2018.
“Fingerprinting WhatsApp messages will help find the originator of the message. That is all we want,” the official cited above told ET.

Here is the chart of yesterday :
Here is the current chart :
The support line at 0.41$ was not strong enough and I was already warning you yesterday that we could break it durin any little correction on the BTC, which has been the case today. So the next support line is around 0.395$ and we could go test that support line before having a bounce and trying to go back upper than 0.41$. Let’s see how the BTC will impact us also in this scenario.
