The Future of Money is Data

Facebook's announcement to launch its own cryptocurrency, Libra in 2020 will have a wide-reaching affect - in 2019 more people have a Facebook account than a bank account. Libra has the power to change the landscape for the ‘unbanked’ and could create transparency and competition in the financial market. Will this be the future of money and how will the New Zealand banking system fare? Will the lender with the best data win? And will banks be able to respond quickly and strategically?
