Carefully read the excerpt below.

The Bank of England has hardened(1) its stance on Facebook’s Libra digital currency, telling the social media company it must meet its highest standards to get the green light for launch in Britain.

In practice, that would mean digital wallets enabled to hold Libra hitting standards that other cryptocurrencies have so far avoided. These include being part of the UK’s financial services deposit protection scheme, holding capital(2) to protect consumers, and being subjected to central bank stress tests.
