Facebook unveiled plans on Tuesday for its own new bitcoin-like cryptocurrency called Libra. Companies such as Lyft, MasterCard, Spotify, Uber, Visa, and others are joining the social media giant in the Libra Association, a Swiss-based council that will give each company one vote in the administration of the currency, Facebook explained in a white paper. Each of those companies would almost certainly accept the new currency after its release.
