“Change is long overdue. It’ll happen one way or another. Novi is ready to come to market. It’s regulated, and we’re confident in our operational ability to exceed the high standards of compliance that will be demanded of us. We feel that it’s unreasonable to delay delivering the benefits of cheaper, interoperable, more accessible digital payments.”

The digital wallet product by Facebook is said to have been licensed in almost all the states in the United States of America according to Marcus. Also, the association in charge of the project have addressed all issues raised by the regulators they contacted;

Marcus also explained that now was the time for the solution that Facebook has built to cause a revolution in the financial industry;


“But before we do, I strongly believe if there was ever a chance to create an open, interoperable protocol for money on the internet and truly change the game for people and businesses around the world, it is now.”
