Dan Larimer is resigning from his post as the chief technology officer of the development company Block.one.
Block.one made history when it raised $4 billion worth of cryptocurrency for the initial coin offering of EOS, a blockchain that was built to compete with Ethereum and other smart contract networks. Block.one’s main project is EOS.
Prior to Block.one and EOS, Larimer was involved in blockchain-based social media publishing service Steem and Bitshares.
He made the announcement in a short post published to Voice, a social media initiative founded by Block.one. The EOS pioneer wrote on the matter:
“I have worked with Brendan and block.one for the past 4 years and am proud of the EOSIO software I was able to create and launch with the help of an extremely talented group of engineers. Alas, all good things must come to an end. As of December 31, 2020 I have resigned my position as CTO of block.one.”
