While Facebook is wooing multi-billion dollar companies like Visa, MasterCard and Uber into the Libra fold, an unlikely suitor tried to sweep Mark Zuckerberg off his dainty feet.
After the introduction of Facebook’s Libra, several leaders have openly displayed their annoyance over Facebook’s preconceived dominance in the space.
Compliant to the above is the walking-talking Bitcoin SV billboard and Cuban dance aficionado, Calvin Ayre, who suggested that Facebook will receive an unlikely boost. While the comment was expected, what surprised the community was his belief that it won’t be from the $160 billion crypto-king Bitcoin, but from the $3.7 billion seven-month-old “cryptocurrency,” Bitcoin SV, which many have equated to be a “scam.”
Ayre’s high hopes foresee nChain to share center stage with the aforementioned “Libra Consortium,” housing the likes of Visa, MasterCard, PayPal, Uber, Vodafone, Coinbase among others. Going by his overly optimistic roadmap, Bitcoin SV will not be the sole entrant into this Facebook bullish wave. Instead, nChain, the blockchain company behind the BSV project, will also ride high on Project Libra.
Ayre claimed that nChain’s invite into the “Consortium,” which has a $10 million buy-in, will be a matter of compulsion, rather than an option. It is important to note that many in the community would equate this highly unlikely invite as a case of delusion, rather than compulsion. He added that nChain will get the position of an “advisor” and that the entire ‘Libra project’ will be transferred to “tokens on BSV.” Who said Canadians weren’t funny?
His tweet in full read,
With marketing and public relations being pegged over actual focus on financial and technological networks, jumping on trending bandwagons earns more dollars than actual development. Calvin Ayre, ever the master marketer, is plying the usual trade of “popular by association.”
Bitcoin SV and the infrastructure surrounding the coin has been built around name and value sharing. From BSV sharing the name “Bitcoin” with a concocted version of Satoshi’s Vision, to curating an entire media outlet with the sole purpose of propping the coin, BSV and Calvin Ayre have done it all.
The master marketers are now getting off the Bitcoin train and are now in the Libra station, and as is customary, they are without a ticket.
