페이스북 스테이블 코인 ‘디엠’ 반대 나선 유럽

The European Parliament has revealed a negative view on’Diem’, a stable coin issued by Facebook.

According to foreign media such as Decrypt, a cryptocurrency specialty media on the 18th (local time), Stefan Berger, a member of the European People’s Party, said, It will lead to confusion.”

Facebook announced plans to issue a stable coin’libra’ in 2019. However, in response to opposition from governments and financial circles around the world, including the United States, the project was temporarily suspended. Since then, in December of last year, in order to escape the image of Facebook, the name has been changed to’DM’, and commercialization is being promoted again.

In September of last year, Congressman Berger introduced the’Markets in Crypto-assets Regulation’ to the European Parliament. The European Central Bank (ECB) wants to more actively regulate cryptocurrency operators.

Decrypt predicted that if the legislation is passed, Europe will be the most severely regulated region of cryptocurrency in the world.

“Facebook boasts over 2 billion users,” Berger said. Because of this, we will be able to have the same power as the central bank.” “Private companies should not issue currencies. “We need to stop Zuckerberg (Facebook CEO) from creating a central bank,” he added.

On the other hand, he said, “As the world is promoting the issuance of central bank digital currency (CBDC), we hope that the ECB will further rush to issue digital euros. We need a digital currency that can be safely used in the digital world.”
