One of the reasons that many cryptocurrency enthusiasts have been encouraged during the bull run is the fact that high-profile executives have left their companies to join blockchain-related and cryptocurrency-related companies. This goes for many various companies within the space.
For example, Coinbase, which is one of the few cryptocurrency companies valued in the billions, recently put a banking veteran in charge of global compliance. That individual was Jeff Horowitz, who spent over a decade at BNY Mellon Company. This isn’t the first time that Coinbase has hired a high-profile executive from a reputable company, as it also brought over a Fannie Mae executive as chief legal officer, as well. However, it appears as though a CEO of a blockchain platform has just been hired to Washington Post, in a reversal of that trend.
About Jarrod Dicker
Jarrod Dicker was the CEO of Po.et, a decentralized protocol that aims to implement blockchain technology to the content ownership space. Specifically, it aims to empower and monetize content creators while holding them accountable, thanks to the immutability of the public ledger.
The native token of Po.Et is $POE, which is listed on high-profile exchanges such as Binance, and featured in globally-known publications such as Business Insider, TechCrunch, Axios, and AdAge. The token currently sits at a market capitalization of just over $13 million, at a price of just above a half-penny, as of press time.
About The Move
Dicker is officially hired as vice president of commercial technology and development, and focused on ways to drive growth through technology, advertisement, and subscription. Interestingly enough, Dicker previously worked at The Post as VP of innovation and commercial strategy, which sounds quite similar to his current role.
For those who are unaware, the Washington Post was purchased in 2013 by Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, the world’s richest man. This is something that the U.S. president, Donald Trump, has referenced and attacked repeatedly on Twitter.
