Mark Zuckerberg-led Meta’s crypto-related trademark applications come after it abandoned its virtual currency project Diem earlier this year. A series of regulatory hurdles over the past few years prevented Diem from going to market, despite sustained efforts and a rebrand.
Earlier this month, two former Diem employees raised $200 million for a new crypto-startup Aptos that will reportedly feature much of Diem’s original infrastructure and design.
Price Action: Meta shares closed 1.47% lower on Wednesday at a price of $213.46, according to data from Benzinga Pro.
