Libra … A New Global Currency?

Published 28 Jan 2020

Business beyond borders with Cynthia Dearin

with Heath Behncke, Founder and Managing Director of Holon Global Investments

 

Everybody’s talking about the Libra, a new cryptocurrency proposed by Facebook, which advocates claim could transform the businesses and the lives of billions of people around the world. So … what’s it all about? Could it be a new global currency?

  • Why Facebook decided to launch the Libra
  • How the Libra is different to other crypto currencies
  • How the Libra could transform the shape of the global business, especially for SMEs
  • When Libra is likely to launch, given the controversy around it in 2019.

I really enjoyed this conversation with Heath, and I hope you do too. If you know someone who would benefit from this interview, please share this episode with them.
