Calibra cryptocurrency wallet CEO David Marcus spoke at the New York Times Dealbook Conference in New York City where he discussed the worldwide regulatory scrutiny the stablecoin project continues to face, among other topics. Calibra is considering an auditor for personal data practices On Nov. 6, the co-creator of Facebook's Libra coin had a sit-down interview with Andrew Ross Sorkin of the New York Times and CNBC.In response to an audience member's question about personal data privacy and protection, Marcus said that Facebook and its Calibra wallet would not intermingle personal data from the social platform and financial data from the cryptocurrency wallet.
"We have built very strong firewalls between Calibra and Facebook in such a way that if you're on the Facebook side, no one can have access to that data." Marcus added that Calibra was investigating whether the separations between itself and Facebook could be audited "So that we can actually ensure that there's third parties monitoring that." Regulators worldwide have expressed concern over how safe customer data would be when using Facebook's proposed Libra stablecoin, for which Calibra would serve as a wallet. Data protection watchdogs in the United Kingdom and Switzerland, as well as United States representatives, have all sought information from Facebook in this regard. Marcus explained that he knew there would be a strong pushback by regulators, as understanding Libra's design is "Not trivial." He said that it requires a significant investment of time to understand the separation of the Libra Association, the Calibra wallet and Facebook.
