Bitcoin plunged 16% after Sherrod Brown joined Donald Trump, Steven Mnuchin, Jerome Powell, and others in attacking Facebook's planned cryptocurrency.
The US Federal Reserve has created a "working group" that is coordinating with government agencies and other central banks to consider the implications of Facebook's planned virtual currency Libra, chairperson Jerome Powell has said.
Facebook unveiled plans for a new cryptocurrency called Libra this week. After a week of analysis, here’s what Bloomberg reporters and editors know about Libra, along with key unknowns that remain.

The moon moves into your sign enhancing your desire for fairness, peace and harmony. You have the chance to communicate from the heart, so you can be heard. Stay true to your cause and don`t deviate or overcompensate just to keep the peace.
You can get carried away with social interaction. You may need to close the door at some point to help you focus on your own inner needs. You may surprise yourself at how creative you can be when left on your own with a few creative tools and a blank canvas...
What the new year holds in store for Librans.
Intensity is the best way to describe the mood at the moment. Take a moment to find your inner balance. The more centered you are inwardly, the easier it will be to handle the outer turbulence.

It is easy to take on more than you bargained for. Set clear boundaries and focus on prioritizing and strategising things to help you stay on the middle path. You may need to close the social door for a few hours to help you concentrate on getting your job done with fewer distractions.
Social dynamics get highlighted. You have a role to play and it is not the side part. Take your chance as the lead and drive it forward. Your ideas will inspire the masses.
It is easy for the scale to tip today. Too much of one thing will push things out of balance. Keep a conscious check on maintaining a balanced rhythm to help you accomplish what you set out to do.
