TAG North Metro Presents: Facebook Libra Cryptocurrency - a Pipe Dream or the Next Frontier?


Facebook Libra Cryptocurrency & Libra Blockchain network proposal by the Libra association has created waves of opinion, debate and news. Is it really the next frontier of evolution for our global society or is an irrational pipe dream that will never see the light of day? To extend this excitement we offer a comprehensive, deeper analysis and discourse to dispel myths and understand the implications of this. We’ll explore all possible dimensions - strategic and technological, socio-economic and geo-political. With an eye on the future, we’ll attempt to answer the question “why should we care?”
