It feels like we, the market, have been living in an off world type of simulation the last 4 years — so much so that no one is very certain how things will turn out in the cryptocurrency world with a new President in the White House.

Facebook’s entrance into the stablecoin game with Libra was in many ways a wake-up call to regulatory bodies and entrenched financial institutions worldwide. Previously slumbering bears were officially awakened when they realized the potential reach between Facebook’s three-legged horse of Messenger, Instagram, and WhatsApp. This, in part, is a big reason why Libra still hasn’t launched yet — and may not fully do so in the way it originally planned as it bears down against governing bodies both abroad and in the United States.

This is a huge swing in the stance they took on Facebook’s proposed Libra Coin a mere couple (actually a bit more, but who’s counting) of months ago.
