Reserve Protocol Beats Libra With a Stable Cryptocurrency for People Who Actually Need One

Reserve Protocol is quietly, but aggressively fulfilling the initial mission of PayPal, while building a more stable, decentralized, and trusted cryptocurrency to rival Libra by Facebook.

By now you’ve probably heard about Libra, a stable cryptocurrency that is being promoted by Facebook and subsidiary, Calibra.
