On the one hand there are the payments via NFC, which allows us to carry the debit or credit card in the mobile or watch, adding a second layer of security to the traditional cards. On the other hand, sending money between accounts almost immediately.

We do not know when it will end up implementing this system, since the fact that it appears in the application does not imply that the launch is close. The question is Would you trust Facebook for sending your money?
