Calibra in every Messenger and WhatsApp

Social media giant's digital currency project Libra is to create a global financial infrastructure to empower billions of people around the world which is planned to be launched in 2020.

According to an analyst, quoted by Fortune, the introduction of Libra “could be viewed similar to Apple’s introduction of iOS to developers a decade ago.”

Calibra is its first product that will be available in 2020 as a standalone app and in Messenger and WhatsApp. It will allow users to send Libra to anyone with a smartphone as instantly and easy as you'd send a photo or text message at low to no cost.

The company is also planning to offer additional services such as buying coffee with the scan of a code and riding local public transit without carrying cash or a metro pass.

“If I had to do it all over again, I would probably more focus on what this thing really is, which is a new payment system,” David Marcus, Calibra co-founder, told Fortune.
