Libra Payments

Last week we integrated Libra’s testnet into our payments platform and I believe did the world’s first Libra payment to buy from Starbucks. Here’s a demo: https://youtu.be/hM4q06nprzg

We whipped up a quick mobile wallet, integrated it into our existing payments platform and gift card service. Since it’s testnet currency and there isn’t a way to redeem or exchange Libra for USD we foot the bill for the $5 gift card but that’s pretty much all it would take for this to be live.

I’ll be drafting a more detailed blog post soon! Exciting times! :rocket:
