Coinbase CEO, Brian Armstrong call the US government's response to Libra ridiculous. In a series of tweets, Armstrong asks governments to not to interfere with innovation and technology.

In a series of tweets, Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong called out America’s response to Facebook’s crypto project “ridiculous.” Armstrong wrote that the way the US government reacted, it is like they want to be left behind.

Armstrong wrote, now that China is looking into creating a stablecoin, he expects the US to reconsider its ridiculous response to Libra. Brian further added that the way for countries to remain relevant over the long term and sustain economic growth is to invest in science technology and innovation. He believes its better if governments can help, but first, it needs to do no harm.

Armstrong further explained that innovation often looks counter-intuitive and disruptive, and the best first step for a government is to stay out of the way. He also compared China and the USA in how they handle innovation. China has a history of putting technologists om office more than the US, even if both countries don’t share the same values.
