Libra taking the time to get it right

It’s important to note that the Libra Blockchain remains in testnet, which is an early-stage version of the code that is far from final. We remain committed to taking the time to get this right.
The statement also said that the group will not launch Libra Blockchain until regulatory concerns it receives regulatory approvals.
