So... Facebook seems to be closer to achieving global domination, with the introduction of a new "currency" called Libra and a financial services and "wallet" company called "Calibra".

You will one day be able to use Libra as payment for online and offline services, Facebook executives say. At the beginning, the company imagines Libra will be used mainly to transfer money between individuals in developing countries who lack access to traditional banks. Eventually, the goal is to create the first truly mainstream cryptocurrency: a decentralized global form of payment that is as stable as the dollar, can be used to buy almost anything, and can support an entire range of financial products from banking to loans to credit.

At first blush, Calibra resembles a fairly standard payments company but its tight integration with Facebooks enormous user base could give it a significant advantage over any rivals. Thanks to its proximity to the technical development of Libra, and its ability to leverage WhatsApp, Messenger, and Instagram, Calibra could very well become Facebooks next big thing.
Calibras immediate goal is to develop and launch its own digital cryptocurrency wallet, and integrate that wallet into other Facebook products
