Bank of France Governor Francois Villeroy de Galhau said that Facebook's Libra stablecoin must comply with anti-money laundering regulation and seek banking licenses if it offers banking services, Reuters reports on June 25. He also pointed out that Facebook's libra project has to comply existing banking regulation because "The risks are increased by the anonymity that Libra users would have." "If the project seeks to go beyond payments to offering banking services like deposits, it will then have to be regulated like a bank with a banking license in all the countries it operates. Otherwise it would be illegal." Head of the Bank of Italy's head of market and payment system oversight allegedly declared that he wants to have more information about the Libra project.
As Cointelegraph recently reported, French Minister of the Economy and Finance intends to "Ask for guarantees" from Facebook in regards to its forthcoming digital currency Libra. Maire also asked the governors of the G7 central banks to report what guarantees are to be obtained from Facebook. Yesterday, a former economic adviser to United States President Donald Trump expressed support for Facebook's stablecoin Libra.
