Several are considering withdrawing
However, the two latter companies are now considering withdrawing from the project. The Wall Street Journal writes today that two directors from unnamed partner companies have refused to support Libra publicly, something Facebook is demanding.

According to anonymous sources, these companies are Visa and Mastercard. Several other companies are also reassessing their support, the sources claim.

There is thus excitement associated with Thursday's Libra Association meeting where all members will be represented.

The reason why the companies want out of the project is not known, but the new cryptocurrency has already faced strong resistance from several teams. For example, the US Treasury Department has expressed serious concern about what the currency can be used for.

"For Libra to succeed, we depend on committed members. And even though I have no knowledge of specific organizations that do not plan to not attend, commitment to the assignment is more important than anything else, ”Marcus writes.
