Operator of the world's largest social network Facebook Inc. will launch a new payment network based on its own cryptocurrency in the “dozen countries” in the first quarter of 2020, the BBC reports.

The publication claims that Facebook consults with representatives of the US Treasury Department and Bank of England Governor Mark Carney about regulating the initiative, code-named Libra.

At the same time, the Financial Times reported that Facebook is already in talks about listing GlobalCoin on the American exchanges Gemini and Coinbase.
