CMC Markets: Customer's interest in cryptocurrencies has increased since Facebook announced Libra

CMC Markets, a financial trading company, said that since Facebook announced its entry into the cryptocurrency sector, customers have become increasingly interested in cryptocurrencies. CMC Markets has approximately 80,000 customers worldwide, and the company said that the number of inquiries about digital assets has increased significantly since mid-May. The company believes that Facebook's announcement of Libra will help raise public awareness of digital assets such as Bitcoin and reduce the prejudice that many cryptocurrencies are scams. A CMC spokesperson declined to say how much the volume of transactions has changed since the announcement.
