Facebook's Libra project has lost support from eBay, Visa, Mastercard and Stripe on Friday, following on from PayPal withdrawing a week ago.

The original coalition of 28 corporate backers of the libra cryptocurrency seems to be dwindling as lawmakers continue to question how it will impact sovereign currencies and how the projectís leaders can ensure consumersí protection. Mercadopago and PayU are now the only two payments companies continuing to back the cryptocurrency as of Friday afternoon.
