Jeff Bezos Could Do a Better Job with Libra: ‘Bitcoin Billionaires’ Author

The writing is on the wall that Mark Zuckerberg has completely botched the planned Libra rollout. Even if the digital currency ever sees the light of day, it’s not likely to be within Facebook’s own timetable of 2020. And the coin already has a stigma attached to it thanks to the shellacking that Congress gave David Marcus, Zuckerberg’s wingman. Ben Mezrich, the author of “Bitcoin Billionaires,” believes that Libra would have had a much better shot if Facebook wasn’t at the wheel, telling CNBC; “I think that Amazon could pull…
