Why Did They Named It “LIBRA”?

The word libra is a Roman measurement of weight. The abbreviation lb for pound is derived from Libra, and the £ symbol originally comes from an ornate L in Libra.

Libra is also a Sodiac sign and Mark Zackerberg’s rivals, the Windklevoss twins, also have there own digital currency exchange called, “GEMINI”. 😉

Interesting post and it might be good for the blockchain, as my thought is that millions of people will learn that there is actually a thing like a blockchain out there.
It might also help to remove the stigmas about crypto currency.
Blessings!

True, there are around 2 billion users of facebook as what I’ve red and majority are not aware of Blockchain so... this is really going to be big.

Have a great day!
