Maurer says Libra is not doing well because the basket of currencies that is deposited with this currency is not accepted by the national banks.

Back in 2018, Maurer rejected a possible special blockchain law developed by Liechtenstein. Back then, the federal government wanted to consolidate a new technology and its possible use in current legislation.
