The Libra project is for the world

A simple global payment system and financial infrastructure that empowers billions of people.

Simple. Inclusive. Global.

Libra is built on secure, scalable, and reliable blockchain

Blockchain Technology

The Libra network is built on a secure, scalable, and reliable blockchain designed so that anyone can build on it, and billions of people can depend on it.

Stable Value

Libra Coins are backed by a reserve of assets made up of cash or ca​sh eq​uivalents and very short-term government secu​rities.
Independent Governance - Libra is governed by the Libra Association

Independent Governance

The Libra Association is tasked with facilitating the operation of the Libra payment system in a safe and compliant manner.

How the Libra payment system works

The Vision - enable people to send, receive, spend and secure their money on the Libra network

The Vision

The Libra payment system is built on blockchain technology to enable the open, instant, and low-cost movement of money. People will be able to send, receive, and spend their money, enabling a more inclusive global financial system.

The Coins

The Libra payment system will support single-currency stablecoins (e.g., ≋USD, ≋EUR, and ≋GBP) and a multi-currency coin (≋LBR).

The Reserve - Libra is fully backed by a reserve of real assets

The Reserve

Libra Coins are fully backed by a reserve of assets made up of cash or ca​sh eq​uivalents and very short-term government secu​rities. This ensures people and businesses have confidence that their Libra Coins can be converted into their local currency when they need it to be.

The Blockchain - operates by a network of validator nodes

The Blockchain

The Libra Blockchain is the technological backbone of the payment system, operated by a network of validator nodes. The software that implements the blockchain is open source — designed so that anyone can build on it — and is able to scale so that billions of people can depend on it for their financial needs.
