" As reported, rumors of Facebook’s plans to integrate a cryptocurrency for WhatsApp users first surfaced in December 2018. Further alleged details of the highly secretive project emerged this February, with sources claiming the forthcoming crypto will be a fiat-pegged stablecoin. "
any analysts on this?

the point of crypto to me is cant counterfeit it
Yes, I was.
Facebook has a payment service that lets users send dollars to each other. From what zuckerberg says, it looks like they want their own blockchain to power this service.
Bitcoin can have high transaction fees and long confirmation times when the market goes crazy. Go look at history in Jan 2018; confirmations took days and transactions were like $50. Even now, transactions cost $5.
Facebook can't rely on this. They need better tech.
