Facebook with about 2.5 million users will offer its digital currency, Libra, to the market next year. Libra can positively influence on world’s economy growth and decrease the role of central banks in issue of economic policies.
Libra is not dependent to governments and is made with the safe Block Chain; its value is relatively stable.

- 3~5 days is needed for international payments and high cost of transfer (7%).
