Facebook reportedly brings on Visa, Mastercard, and PayPal as backers of its cryptocurrency

Social media giant Facebook's yet-to-launch cryptocurrency appears to have attracted three major payments companies as backers, according to a report by The Wall Street Journal.

Visa, Mastercard and PayPal are set to be backers of Facebook's crypto along with a number of other companies, including Uber. Each will invest approximately $10 million into a foundation that will govern the coin, the Journal said citing anonymous sources. That money will be used to create the backing for the coin, which will be pegged to a basket of fiat currencies.
