Three institutions that initially supported the cryptocurrency made by Facebook, Libra, reportedly now keep their distance from the project.

The Financial Times report said the three institutions had moved away because of criticism from regulators on digital currencies heats up.

Facebook reportedly began to feel upset because the founders of Libra did not support the cryptocurrency. Some other partners worry that if they openly support Libra, their business will be disrupted.

In June, Facebook along with 27 partners announced it would make Libra cryptocurrency. Since then they have been criticized by legislators who fear that the cryptocurrency will be abused by criminals and will disrupt the US dollar exchange rate.

The European Union is also said to be worried about Libra. They even investigated the possibility that the cryptocurrency would damage the exchange rate.

The plan, Facebook will launch Libra in the second half of 2020. They have created the Libra Association to regulate cryptocurrencies.

Facebook promises Libra will come out after they overcome the existing concerns.
