‘Facebook Coin’ Could Generate Billions in Revenue: Barclays Analyst

According to Barclays analyst Ross Sandler, Facebook’s cryptocurrency efforts could yield anywhere from $3 billion to $19 billion in additional revenue by 2021. To put that estimate in context, the Menlo Park, California, company brought in $40.6 billion in total revenue in 2017, with $39.9 billion from advertising.

Sandler also sees two primary challenges for Facebook achieving its crypto goals: “demonstrating a value prop for users above what is available today in payments” and overcoming consumers’ “trust issues after 2018’s problems.”


A bounce from this support will again try to break out of $4,000 and reach the critical overhead resistance of $4,255.The pair sustains above $4,255,that has a target objective of $5,273.91. Traders can add long positions on a breakout above $4,255. Until then, maintain the stops on the existing long positions below $3,236.09.Below this support, we anticipate a quick slide to the final support zone of $3,355–$3,236.09.

Bitcoin Cash (BCH) continues to trade inside the tight range of $120–$140.Above $140, a rally to the next overhead zone of $157.95 to $163.89 is likely.
