Ant Financial: A firm position on digital currency and blockchain

China's Internet giant does not seem to follow Facebook quickly into the field of cryptocurrency. Eric Jing, CEO of Ant Financial, a subsidiary of Alibaba's payment subsidiary, has said last year that the company will stay away from digital currencies while focusing on the underlying blockchain technology. A spokesperson for the company said to CoinDesk on Tuesday: "We have not changed our position." A few hours ago, Facebook officially announced its Libra plan.
