Facebook is Selling Off Its Diem Cryptocurrency Project

The Diem Association, a group of companies working on a block-chain based payment system, is reportedly selling its technology assets to Silvergate Capital for $200 million, states the Wall Street Journal.

Meta, formally known as Facebook, is one of the founding members of the Diem Association.
