This report was passed across via a blog post published on voice.com on Sunday 10th January 2021. According to the blog post, Larimer resigned from the project at the end of 2020, leaving a farewell note that says “all good things must come to an end.”
Block.one, the firm behind the development of EOS blockchain led by Brendan Blumer, raised $4 billion to build out a rival to Ethereum (ETH). According to the report, Larimer has been an integral part of the company since 2017.
“I will continue on my mission to create free market, voluntary solutions for securing life, liberty, property, and justice for all. I do not know exactly what is next, but I am leaning toward building more censorship resistant technologies.”
However, Larimer said he will now shift his focus on building out tools that allow people to secure their own freedom.
Larimer had claimed in a blog post that he would boycott Twitter because he thinks its censorship has gone out of control.

This came in the wake of the permanent suspension placed on President Donald Trump’s Twitter account following what’s termed a terrorist attack on the Capitol Hill, which many believe was instigated by the United States president.
