Although cryptocurrencies have existed for many years, no other company can bring user size, brand support and balance sheets to cryptocurrencies at the same time as Facebook. Facebook's diversity of partners, it will also reduce the restrictions that regulatory review and antitrust laws may bring."

MoffettNathanson:

“We believe that Facebook-based cryptocurrency payment systems will be especially useful in high inflation and unstable banking systems and cross-border payments. Therefore, Facebook’s business ambitions do not seem to be limited to highly developed markets. Instead, Facebook also Focus on becoming the world's leading e-commerce platform."

Royal Bank of Canada:

We plan to analyze its white papers to help investors understand the economics of encryption behind Facebook tokens. We believe Facebook will use cryptocurrencies to promote its platforms: payments, business transactions, applications and games. And this move will be a multi-step process: companies will first focus on user engagement (through messaging) and then A deeper level of profitability. A similar strategy has played a very good role in Facebook's previous core advertising business.

At the same time, cryptocurrencies will significantly enhance Facebook’s app ecosystem. Despite the ease of use and potential adoption of cryptocurrencies There are problems, especially since there are many other very viable online payment solutions, and the project may still have important news visibility and a catalyst for e-commerce activities on Facebook. We think this is an important step for the company. Because it creates a more private and e-mail-enabled messaging system."

Flower Bank:

“Many reports show that Facebook will announce the details of its cryptocurrency plan Libra by releasing a white paper tomorrow morning.

The currency can be used for a variety of applications, from P2P remittances to merchant shopping (including Instagram shopping and Facebook trading markets). As Zuckerberg said at this year's F8 conference, "Remittances should be like sending a photo." It's just as easy. Libra plans to bring important new products and profit streams to Facebook in the future. However, the regulatory framework for cryptocurrencies remains unstable, and the success of the Libra project will also prove whether Facebook has the ability to overcome its recent credibility.
