French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire asked central bankers and regulators to look at Facebook. His fears revolve around “privacy, money laundering, and terrorist financing”. Markus Ferber, an EU parliamentarian of the CSU, also said that Facebook could become a “shadow bank” with its 2 billion users, which should put the regulators on the highest alert. Similarly, Joachim Wuermeling, a member of the Bundesbank’s board of directors, has spoken out: Facebook should not become a new “marketplace for money laundering or terrorist financing”. Similar to the green financial expert Schick, who had just been concerned about the lack of privacy: “Anonymous payment options” like Libra also made it easier “to remunerate service providers almost anywhere in the world without the treasury’s eye”.
