The US is generally “exceedingly positive” about Bitcoin, with 61.5 per cent of tweets being favourable towards Bitcoin. On average, 59.8 per cent of Bitcoin tweets are positive worldwide.

Facebook last month announced a digital wallet subsidiary called ‘Calibra’ that would launch Blockchain-powered cryptocurrency “Libra” next year to help nearly one billion people globally who don’t have a bank account but do have a mobile phone.

The new digital wallet for “Libra” currency would be available in Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp and as a stand-alone app in 2020. Facebook has tied up with 27 organisations around the world to start the non-profit Libra Association to create the new currency. (IANS)
