Libra is real challenge and fb has a lot of baggage but this could be positive to mass adoption.
It would be interesting to see if there will be less visibility in the entity moving forward.
This can alter governments.

Some SSIG members are also interested in values of non financial and financial capabilities to create landscapes/ecosystems of trust and where values can be interchanged. Values that might be expressed in terms of value (e.g. education). So not only converting fiat currency to cryptocurrency for say scholarships but also to exchange non-monetary value.
