– Meta closes its controversial crypto-asset project. Called Novi, Meta’s digital wallet will bid farewell on 1er next September. It launched in November 2021 as part of a pilot program with Coinbase support. Surprisingly, Novi initially did not support the Diem cryptocurrency offered by Meta itself, until last December.

In a notice to customers, Novi said the ability to add money to an account will end from July 21 and users of this wallet are advised to withdraw their balance as soon as possible before the end of the access.
