Andy Hendrikx, global community lead at the Cardano Foundation, has parted ways with the Zug-based organization. Hendrikx took an unofficial role at the foundation all the way back in October 2017 and then became its community manager in October 2019. In March, just months before his departure, he was promoted to the organization’s global community lead.
In a lengthy Twitter thread, he reflects on his time at the foundation, claiming that he managed to meet some of the most “energetic” and “pleasant” people at his job:
While I am leaving I am simultaneously looking back on what we have achieved as a collective but knowing what it is today I know the community is in a good place and a great successor will stand up to move our community to the next level.
While the reason behind Hendrikx’s exit from Cardano is not immediately clear, his LinkedIn profile says that he’s currently enjoying sabbatical leave.
Hendrikx claims that he’s willing to take “a breather” and focus on “new possibilities.”
The Cardano Foundation, which was created for promoting the largest proof-of-stake blockchain, is no stranger to controversies. In November 2018, its chairman Michael Parsons resigned in infamy following accusations of mismanagement. IOHK CEO
