"We're aware that some people are having trouble accessing our apps and products," Facebook said in its first public comment on Twitter. "We're working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible, and we apologize for any inconvenience."
Silvergate, a US-based crypto bank that first partnered with the Facebook venture to create a stable coin last May, said in a release they paid $182 million for the operations infrastructure.
Facebook announced last week that their digital payments platform, Novi, is nearly ready to launch across multiple states, having passed regulatory checks. Novi will use a stable cryptocurrency called Diem to launch payments across borders for the 2.7 billion users of the social network.
