Tezos Foundation Announces a New Board.
Johann Gevers, president of the Swiss Tezos Foundation published a blog post to hire operational staff, and then announced on Wednesday a new board member, Lars Haussmann, to replace a vacant place in December.
A man-woman team long in conflict with Gevers, sets their own chess pieces in motion. Wall street journal reports a new swiss Foundation called T2, would be launched.
The events mark the final phase of a drama that began in July, when Tezos collected $ 232 million, a record-breaking fundraising at that time, in a first coin deal (ICO).
According to the WSJ, the Tezos Foundation has control over this fund, based on bitcoin and ether sounds.
Polychain Capital founder and T2 board member Olaf Carlson-Wee told CoinDesk.
“In the short term this is really just to show that the community has a real voice and say here. It’s been very clear to me that the community and the foundation are not in line at all.
Carlson-Wee said that he had previously applied to be a member of the Tezos Foundation but was rejected; a move that led him to join T2’s seven-member board. The T2 Foundation was formed by Ryan Jesperson, a member of the Tezos Community.
Ryan Jesperson explained to the CoinDesk “We hope that the Foundation Authority will help fix the situation. That is part of the purpose of the Foundation Authority, to make sure that Foundations fulfill their charter.”
