Almost three-quarters of German consumers would not use Facebook's planned digital currency, Libra, according to a recent poll.
Only 27 percent considers using Libra
On Oct. 17, Cointelegraph auf Deutsch reported that out of 2000 questioned Germans, aged 16 and over, only 27 percent would ever consider using Facebook’s Libra stablecoin as a means of payment at home or abroad.
The poll was conducted on behalf of the Wirtschaftswoche business news magazine and Creditplus Bank AG. The results indicate that 73 percent completely reject the idea of Libra as a digital currency. 42 percent because they do not trust Facebook as a company and 31 percent because they only have trust in state-controlled currencies.
The rejection of Libra among the over 35 age group is significantly higher than among younger consumers. In the age group 55 plus, 85 percent said that it is impossible to do anything with the digital Facebook currency. Libra finds its biggest support in the age group between 22 and 34 years. In this age group, almost 42 percent of the consumers would be open to using the stablecoin. Read More...
