Le Maire said there are many systemic financial risks, sovereignty risks and the possibility of market dominance linked to Facebook's sovereignty:

    All of these concerns about Facebook Libra are serious. So I want to say quite clearly: under these circumstances we cannot approve the development of Libra on European territory.

In August, the EU Commission reportedly published a tender against Libra. Regulators are worried that Facebook Libra could create "potential restrictions on competition" once it has the data of consumers who use it.

In July, Yves Mersch, a Luxembourg lawyer and a member of the European Central Bank's board of directors, called Libra a "pseudo-cryptocurrency".

He said that Facebook's goal with Libra is centralized governance, and centralized control, which is completely contrary to the concept of a decentralized currency.
