Facebook has officially revealed plans for its much anticipated global cryptocurrency LibraCoin, with the backing of a number of major companies.

Facebook’s ambitions for the new currency, called LibraCoin, were made clear as it claimed 1.7 billion people around the world without a bank account would be able to use it to make instant and nearly free international money transfers from their mobile phones.
