“Part of what we’re trying to do overall on these big projects now that touch very socially important aspects of society is have a more consultative approach. So not just show up and say, ‘Alright, here we’re launching this. Here’s a product, your app got updated, now you can start buying Libras and sending them around.’ We want to make sure. We get that there are real issues,” Facebook CEO said.
He continued and explained that finance is an extremely regulated space.
