Facebook crypto on the way
More crypto!

It's official: Facebook is getting into crypto.

The tech giant reportedly plans to test its cryptocurrency “GlobalCoins” by the end of this year. The move comes as part of Facebook's larger plan to launch a digital payments system by 2020.

The big goal: It seems like Facebook is looking to create a system that *successfully* combines sending messages with sending money. As the owner of WhatsApp, Instagram and Messenger, Facebook's cryptocurrency is poised to do just that.

GlobalCoins' status: Mark Zuckerberg has already met with Bank of England governor Mark Carney to discuss the cryptocurrency, and U.S. lawmakers have sent Zuck a letter of regulatory questions regarding the token. Facebook is expected to outline more plans about GlobalCoins later this summer.
