north america 703 crypto negative
Zubin Koticha and Alexis Gauba, the founders of the Opyn decentralized finance (DeFi) protocol, have announced their departure from the project and their decision to leave the crypto industry. This news comes after Opyn recently settled an enforcement action with the US Commodity and Futures Trading Commission (CFTC). In a statement, Koticha expressed the emotional nature of their decision, stating that they had anticipated a long-term future in crypto but unexpectedly reached the end of the road. Opyn will continue under the leadership of Andrew Leone, who will take on the role of CEO. Koticha hinted at a new project in the works, but clarified that it would not be crypto-related. Gauba echoed Koticha’s sentiments, expressing sadness at leaving the crypto space. Opyn is an options trading platform on the Ethereum network, based in San Francisco. The CFTC’s enforcement action against Opyn, along with two other DeFi teams, for allegedly operating an unregistered derivatives exchange, sparked controversy within the commission itself. Commissioner Summer Mersinger dissented, arguing against the enforcement action.
