However Dorsey was not the only one who think that Libra is a gimmick.Riccardo Spagni a cryptocurrency also stated that Libra cannot be proclaimed and it will be a thing of great dishonesty to call it so. Spagni gave a long statement to mashable,
“Not to put too fine a point on it but from a technical perspective there is a great difference between Libra consensus mechanism deciding if your transaction is worthy of inclusion and Visa alone deciding if your transaction should be processed it’s central banking by other name a permissioned central banking committee instead of a government appointed one”.
These statements of some honourable people’s suggest that facebook have a lot of work to do with its cryptocurrency for Libra’s universal acceptance.
