January 13, 2021 Dan Larimer, CTO of Block.one, announces resignation

Dan Larimer, the co-founder of Block.one, the software company behind EOS, left the company as of Dec. 31, 2020. His departure is reportedly motivated by his desire to “pursue new personal projects” according to the company. More specifically, Larimer says he has become concerned that “censorship has gotten out of control,” as illustrated by the recent purge of President Trump and his allies from social media platforms. Also a previous founder of BitShares and Steem, Larimer is a seasoned entrepreneur with plenty of resources. He says he is now “leaning towards building more censorship resistant technologies.”
