Why this top CTO ditched Uber, Facebook for NFTs on Solana

Silicon Valley and big tech firms are increasingly losing talents and high-profile individuals to the greener pastures of the crypto industry. Green as in the freshness and the horizon of opportunities, and green as in money.

As CryptoSlate reported last month, It’s becoming evident that Web3 and the wider crypto- and blockchains space is becoming increasingly interesting for talents to join. Not long ago, landing employment at one of the big tech companies was a dream come true for many, and it may still be, but now there’s an attractive alternative career path in the crypto space.

There are numerous examples to support the case: Novi, Meta’s (Facebook) wallet project lost their CMO to the payment tech company Circle in January; Amazon’s GM of AWS Edge Service jumped to the role of CTO at the exchange Gemini.

Meanwhile, both the former CFO of Lyft and Uber’s ex-director of corporate development headed over to NFT marketplace OpenSea. Also, former head of Gaming at YouTube, Ryan Wyatt, left the tech giant to become CEO of Polygon Studios.
