According to Yahoo Finance, David Marcus, head of the Facebook blockchain and director of the Libra Association, said in an interview with Yahoo Finance on Tuesday that seven companies have not changed the project since Libra’s withdrawal. Libra’s development is “absolutely not” at risk. Marcus also mentioned that the association has been formally established and the next step will be to find more “diversity” among the members of the association. When talking about Libra's release plan, Marcus said that the goal for the first half of 2020 was to release "an ambitious timetable," but as he reiterated in Congress earlier this year, the project took time. It will not start until the regulatory approval.
