Could Novi be the next big thing for Facebook?

With significant change and technological development around the world, the process of transferring funds between individuals faster seems to remain the main concern of Facebook.

According to Facebook, Calibra’s digital wallet has been rebranded to Novi, which contains developments that will make sending money around the world as easy as to send messages.

The a new digital wallet where users will be able to access the wallet to send money on Messenger and WhatsApp, as well as in a stand-alone application.

According to David Marcus, who was originally president of Calibra and the Libra Society and became president of Novi: "Novi Financial's first product is Libra's digital wallet, a new payment system based on innovative blockchain technology”.

"Novi's vision is a compelling one that embodies the dream of many in the cryptocurrency industry and blockchain in supporting non-banking customers," Marcus said. "There will be no hidden fees to add, send, receive or withdraw money and your transfers will arrive immediately."

This new tool may be Facebook's new approach to overcoming the regulatory pressures the company has faced since its announcement of libra.

Novi Financial will allow that instead of a global stable currency, Facebook could become the world's largest retail bank with a digital wallet built into its very large user base.
