Bitcoin (BTC) Price Surge, Facebook Cryptocurrency Mooted

Facebook (FB) Cryptocurrency on the Cards

American online social media and network giant Facebook (FB) is expected to announce this week a new cryptocurrency - according to a range of media sources - in a move that is seen as adding extra credibility to the cryptocurrency space. The new stable coin – rumored to be called GlobalCoin - is expected to be a new payment system for Facebook’s 2 billion+ users, enabling users to buy goods and services without the need for a bank account. The coin is said to be backed by a consortium of around a dozen major global companies including Visa, PayPal and Uber. A White Paper for the new coin – said to be linked to a basket of currencies - is mooted to be released on June 18.

If the timetable for the launch is correct, the cryptocurrency space will once again be pushed into mainstream media. The new coin will likely draw global interest, due to Facebook’s reach, and while it may detract from other ‘payment coins’ it will showcase cryptocurrency use to a huge new audience.
