Originally disclosed to the public way back in June 2017, Facebook’s own take in cryptocurrency, Libra, might finally see launch next year, Financial Times reports.

While the specific date is not yet concrete, the same report claims that it could be as early as January 2021, but not as a comprehensive launch.
