Stocks discussed: (NYSE:T) (Nasdaq:FB)

U.S. telecommunications giant AT & T ( NYSE:T )announcedyesterday that they will accept cryptocurrency for online bill payments. The company will be working with crypto payments processor BitPay to execute transactions. Kevin McDorman, vice president, AT & T Communications Finance Business Operations, said:

"We're always looking for ways to improve and expand our services. We have customers who use cryptocurrency, and we are happy we can offer them a way to pay their bills with the method they prefer."

After receiving a BitLicense from the New York Department of Financial Services (NYDFS) back in January, financial services firm Robinhood has now announced the launch of its crypto trading app for New Yorkers in a recentblog post . Robinhood Crypto allows users to track, trade and invest in seven different cryptocurrencies, including: Bitcoin ( BTC ), Bitcoin Cash ( BCH ), Bitcoin SV, Ethereum ( ETH ), Ethereum Classic ( ETC ), Litecoin ( LTC ) and Dogecoin ( DOGE ). Robinhood Crypto is now available in 39 U.S. states.

BBCreports that Facebook ( NasdaqGS:FB ) aims to establish a cryptocurrency payments network by the first quarter of 2020. The social media giant's planned cryptocurrency is being referred to internally as GlobalCoin, and will begin testing by the end of 2019. An excerpt from the report reads:

Facebook wants to create a digital currency that provides affordable and secure ways of making payments, regardless of whether users have a bank account.

The social networking site, which owns WhatsApp and Instagram, is hoping to disrupt existing networks by breaking down financial barriers, competing with banks and reducing consumer costs.

A report from Russian news outletTASSindicates that the country's central bank is considering the creation and use of a gold-backed cryptocurrency. The report explains, however, that the currency will be used only for mutual settlements with other countries. Elvira Nabiullina, the head of the central bank, emphasized that the state is still firmly against the idea of crypto as an alternative to fiat currency:

"We, in principle, of course, are opposed to cryptocurrencies being launched into our monetary system. We do not see this possibility, that cryptocurrencies, in fact, fulfill here the function of monetary surrogates. In this part, definitely not."
