The association says the Calibra's project requires "a diverse set of members" in different industries, geographies and sectors to help catalyze development over the long term.
The Libra Association Vice Chairman and Head of Policy and Communications Dante Disparte says the addition of three new members to the Libra Association shows the association's commitment to building a diverse group of organizations that will contribute to the governance, technological roadmap and launch readiness for the Libra payment system.
