Meta Platforms (NASDAQ:META) owned Novi digital wallet will be shut down by September. The company announced that the final day to add funds would be July 20.
According to Bloomberg, Meta asked Novi users to withdraw their balance as soon as possible. The company said it would “attempt to transfer” any remaining money to customer bank accounts and debit cards after Novi’s final day of operation.
“We are already leveraging the years spent on building capabilities for Meta overall on blockchain and introducing new products, such as digital collectibles,” a company spokesperson told Bloomberg.

In December, it announced that users in the U.S. can send and receive money using its Novi digital currency wallet.
