Surprise resignation news from NEAR
When we look at Flament’s journey at NEAR Foundation, we can see that he has left behind a period full of success. Former CEO Flament said in his statements, “When I joined two years ago, NEAR had approximately 50,000 users. “Now we have 2.5 million daily active users,” he said. Flament, who expressed this success in an interview, played an important role in the growth of the company.
There are important reasons behind Chris Donovan taking over the CEO role. “Donovan is well-suited for the CEO role given the current regulatory landscape,” Flament said.
