- Cryptocurrencies have been holding onto their gains after rising over the weekend
- Facebook will reportedly launch its Libra blockchain project as early as Tuesday.
- Here are the next levels to watch according to the Confluence Detector.
If the reports are correct, Facebook will leap into blockchain technology with its Libra project on Tuesday. The social media giant may also announce a Testnet and has listed a long list of partners that hold the network nodes.
According to RBC Captial, Facebook's stablecoin will be a milestone for the internet behemoth and will open new revenue streams – and significant development for FB is also a huge leap for cryptocurrencies.
Previous reports claimed that the company already has around 100 employees involved in the project but will be legally based in Geneva, Switzerland.
What levels should we watch?
