It’s deja vu all over again. Facebook executive David Marcus is taking the blame for Libra, saying it was him, not his boss Mark Zuckerberg, who named the new digital currency. Marcus isn’t apologizing for it, however. On the contrary, he’s insisting that the name Libra had nothing at all to do with Gemini, the cryptocurrency exchange launched by Zuckerberg rivals Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss. Both Gemini and Libra are astrological signs, but Gemini came on the scene half-a-decade ago. It’s the worst-kept secret that Zuckerberg was trolling Cameron and Tyler with Libra. And now that David Marcus “doth protest too much,” he’s exposed the fact that Zuckerberg is hiding behind his key officer. While his theory is farfetched, Marcus is either willing to take one for the team or has just been drinking the Facebook Kool-Aid for too long.
