Bitcoin security expert: Libra should distinguish it from the parent company Facebook

Bitcoin security expert Andreas Antonopoulos hosted a discussion in Edinburgh highlighting the impact of the Libra white paper. It remains to be seen whether FB's inclusion of encryption systems will force companies such as Netflix, Google and Amazon to join the trend to increase their acceptance. Despite its impressive technical vision, Facebook still plans to build Libra with the best features of different cryptocurrencies. For example, the project includes a virtual machine for performing Ethereum smart contracts and various other basic functions of Gas and Bitcoin. Antonopoulos believes that Libra's main challenge is to survive the first contact with Facebook and distinguish it from the parent company.
