OpenSea's new CFO is planning an IPO
Users are not happy
OpenSea’s new CFO, Brian Roberts, has revealed his plans to take the company public, and the NFT community is not a fan of the possibility.
Yesterday Roberts confirmed his move to OpenSea in a tweet, stating he will help “shape the future of NFTs, web3 and the digital economy.” Later on in the day, in an interview with Bloomberg, he hinted that an Opensea IPO is very likely.
“When you have a company growing as fast as this one, you’d be foolish not to think about it going public,” explained Roberts, who also remarked on OpenSea’s impressive financial record. “I’ve seen a lot of P&Ls (profit and loss statements) but I’ve never seen a P&L like this,” he said.
Roberts seems to be the only person to think an IPO is a good idea. On Twitter, the NFT community has been sharing their disappointment over the news, with the promise to move to other marketplaces if OpenSea goes public.
