Wylie Aronow Co-Founder Yuga Labs Seeks Medical Leave Citing Health Complication
The developer of Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) and co-founder of Yuga Labs, Wylie Aronow, announced plans to relinquish his office duties to undergo treatment temporarily. Aronow confessed on Twitter to be suffering from a heart failure condition that requires urgent medical attention.
Aronow Heart Failure Worsens
On January 28, the crypto entrepreneur Aronow announced his health status via Twitter. The Tweet revealed the underlying heart complication was noticed late last year after early signs occurred.
He regretted continuing to work while the doctors had advised him to change his lifestyle.
At the moment, Aronow’s condition has deteriorated, and he has to leave work to seek treatment.
During his leave, he proclaimed to retain his position at Yuga Lab Board of Management and his strategic advisory role. However, it remains to be seen when Aronow will resume office.
Aronow’s Contribution to Crypto Growth
The ailing Yuga Labs co-founder restated that he had suffered from a chronic health condition in his mid-20s. His previous chronic illness hindered Aronow from pursuing his career goals since he spent more time on treatment.
After recovery, Aronow worked for 12 hours daily pursuing big projects and focused on making the best during his second chance. Yuga Labs was among the projects he started after the long ailment.
How will Yuga Labs Support Aronow during Medication?
Elsewhere, the Yuga Labs Community felt compassion for Aronow and assured him of support during treatment. According to the Tweet, Aronow was a friend to many, and his remarkable contribution has consistently been recognized.
Yuga Labs had previously appointed Daniel Alegre as the new chief executive, who was expected to work with Aronow and Greg Solano this year. During Alegre’s appointment, Aronow proclaimed that the incoming chief executive who succeeded Nicole Muniz would revolutionize the Metaverse space.
In addition, last November, Aronow announced plans to improve NFT transfers by launching a new model that will utilize coded allow lists. His proposal aimed at retaining NFT holders by reducing transaction costs.
Beyond this, Aronow has made unprecedented moves in CrytoPunks, BAYC, and other NFTs projects. Aronow’s departure from office arrives at a critical point when blockchain, NFTs, and crypto assets are struggling to recover from last year’s ripple effect caused by the collapse of FTX.
