In 2019 the world was on a date with an innovative and different project from the social networking giant Facebook, where Mark Zuckerberg announced with an alliance of 27 international and financial institutions their plan to launch The non-profit Libra Foundation, and the creation of a new digital currency in 2020 bearing its name, powered by blockchain technology, targeting more than a billion people in this world who do not have a bank account to offer them easy and low-cost solutions for their financial transfers
