OpenSea CFO Joins the Departure List
The bull market of last year saw the rise of NFTs, with OpenSea becoming the main destination for those wanting to get involved. The company has since expanded aggressively, with Brian Roberts taking on the role of Chief Financial Officer in December.
Despite the recent slump in the NFT market, OpenSea continues to be a major player in the space. The marketplace has seen record-setting consecutive months, and is one of the few platforms to weather the recent industry-wide downturn. As the NFT market continues to evolve, OpenSea will be a key player to watch.
I'm excited to announce that I am leaving the NFT marketplace. I want to thank the company for the opportunity and wish it all the best. It's been a real pleasure to build a team from the ground up and handpick game changers.
I remain bullish for OpenSea's future, NFTs, and Web 3.0 despite stepping down as CEO. I believe that the company is well-positioned to capitalize on the growing interest in non-fungible tokens and the decentralized web. With a strong team in place, I am confident that OpenSea will continue to be a leading player in this space.
