According to The Information, Facebook's upcoming cryptocurrency Libra will run on a 100-node-maintained network, and Facebook will charge each node a $10 million license fee, which means that Facebook will get a total of these nodes. $1 billion in revenue.
Unlike Bitcoin, Bitcoin is a non-privileged system that anyone who has access to the computing resources needed for a complete node (or mining equipment) can purchase at a price well below $10 million.
People from the industry believe that the Facebook Stabilizer program makes users "unable to control their personal data, digital identity", and is completely contrary to the cryptocurrency, especially the true spiritual core of Bitcoin.
Facebook's stable currency, which is unable to achieve data privacy, transparency and "decentralization", is just another financial monopoly alliance.
According to relevant sources, it is precisely because of this that Facebook's cooperation and acquisitions with many blockchain companies including Tendermint, Stellar and MobileCoin have not been successful.
