In this episode of Tech Intersect, I speak with Dante Disparte, vice chairman and head of policy and communications for the Libra Association, an independent membership organization focused on creating a stablecoin that supports a financially-inclusive digital future. He is also the founder and chairman of Risk Cooperative and serves on the Federal Emergency Management Agency's National Advisory Council.
Now one year into the LibraCoin Project, Dante and I delve into an illuminating conversation about its evolution, current status as of May 2020, the Facebook privacy controversy and testimony before the United States Congress and regulatory landscape, and plans for the fall 2020 launch in the United States and beyond to empower the unbanked and underbanked around the world. And our discussion takes place in the midst of the COVID19 pandemic, which has helped make the case even more clear cryptographically secured digital, user-directed, low cost, contactless payments.
