A Taiwan based crypto exchange MaiCoin wants to join Facebook’s Libra Association.

On Aug 21st, Tapei Times reported that MaiCoin wants to join “specifically looking to operate a node on the blockchain-based network, which would validate and record transactions on the shared ledger.”

“When we reached Facebook and discussed getting involved in the project, Facebook told us that it is looking for partners around the world that not only have high technical skills to protect the node, but also are confident of building a local user base of more than 20 million people.”
