Block.one Announces New Hires to Research and Engage with Public Blockchain Networks
Former EOS New York team to be senior leaders in new initiatives
GRAND CAYMAN, Cayman Islands, March 25, 2020 – High performance blockchain software publisher Block.one today announced that former EOS New York founders Rick Schlesinger, Kevin Rose and their team will be joining Block.one to help the company deepen its engagement with public blockchain communities, promote ideas to foster open, organized, and decentralized public network operation, and represent its interests as a token holder of several public digital assets.
Block.one believes engagement, transparency and open discussion are essential to ensuring the success of any public blockchain. Block.one is proud to belong to an open source community that thrives on the sharing of information, as well as the advocacy, innovation and action of its individual members.
Rick, Kevin and the team at EOS New York were some of the earliest adopters of the EOS public network and have been at the forefront of healthy community engagement and the promotion of innovation and organization within open source ecosystems.
“Over the years, Rick, Kevin, and their team have shown tremendous dedication, professionalism, and globally-inclusive collaboration, and we are excited for them to join our team,” said Brendan Blumer, CEO.
“The EOS public network offers unprecedented token holder alignment, network performance, and environmental friendliness, all while being powered and governed by a global token network with finite supply integrity,” said Rick and Kevin. “In our new role, we plan to listen to and work with communities to leverage Block.one’s digital asset positions to maximize the health and security of various public networks.”
EOS New York and its associated companies have ceased operations entirely, as the team transitions into their new roles.
