Libra Does Not Pose a Threat

CEO of global financial services firm JPMorgan Chase, Jamie Dimon, said that Facebook’s Libra does not pose a threat in the foreseeable future.

According to CNBC, Dimon delivered his comments during a conference call with analysts on Tuesday, July 16th. Dimon said he would not spend too much time on Libra, specifying that “to put it in perspective, we have been talking about blockchain for seven years and very little has happened. We are going to be talking about Libra three years from now.”

Dimon said any new effort will have to comply with the industry’s Anti-Money Laundering provisions. He said:

“We don’t mind competition. The request is always going to be the same: We want a level playing field. And governments are going to insist that people who hold money or move money all live according to rules where they have the right controls in place; no-one wants to aid and abet terrorism or criminal activities.”

Dimon’s statements follows a press conference from United States Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, who spoke about the use of cryptocurrency to finance illicit activity, and the role of regulations pertaining crypto-dealing organizations. Mnuchin said:

“Cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin [BTC] have been exploited to support billions of dollars of illicit activity, like cybercrime, tax evasion, extortion, randomware, illicit drugs, human trafficking […] This is indeed a national security issue.”

  1. I run a vape store directory and we have had a listing from a vape store in the United States that likewise sells CBD products. A Calendar month later on, PayPal has contacted use to claim that our account has been limited and have requested us to remove PayPal as a payment method from our vape shop directory site. We do not offer for sale CBD product lines such as CBD oil. We merely offer marketing and advertising professional services to CBD firms. I have taken a look at Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Major Health and wellness Merchant and if you take a close peek, you will witness that they sell a reasonably comprehensive variety of CBD products, particularly CBD oil and they also happen to take PayPal as a settlement method. It appears that PayPal is administering double standards to different companies. Due to this restriction, I can no longer take PayPal on my CBD-related web site. This has restricted my payment options and now, I am seriously reliant on Cryptocurrency payments and direct bank transfers. I have checked with a solicitor from a Magic Circle law practice in The city of london and they stated that what PayPal is undertaking is absolutely not legal and inequitable as it ought to be applying an uniform criterion to all companies. I am still to check with another attorney from a US law office in The city of london to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the United States. For the time being, I would be very appreciative if anybody here at targetdomain could provide me with substitute payment processors/merchants that work with CBD firms.
