Founder recently step down from DigiByte Active management role
Notably, DigiByte Founder, Jared Tate recently stepped down, distancing himself from any direct contribution to the firm. In a series of tweets, he ranted about the main motivation of the majority of stakeholders being mere short term profits.
He was opined that the very beneficiaries of DigiByte should be able to give back citing individuals and organizations that have milked the DigiByte cash cow and yet never contribute to the growth of its ecosystem.
“All 90% of the people care for is cashing out when a coin “moons.” Its a primal force. I get that. But every day I see this tech being used to enrich the few at the expense of the long term good of the many.”
