In the shared Twitter post, Rust thanked his friend Roger Ver and the whole community for all the time spent together, which in his view was particularly useful for his personal career.
In the same post, the now-former CEO of Bitcoin.com listed all the achievements and various partnerships that the team has gained in the time he has been CEO, such as the one with HTC, mentioning also the new platforms that have been launched, such as the Bitcoin.com exchange.
From a professional point of view regarding the goals and objectives achieved, Rust is very satisfied since he has led Bitcoin.com to increase the influence of the Bitcoin Cash (BCH) crypto, but also of services and tools such as the SLP (Simple Ledger Protocol) tokens, which have been used to bring the Tether stablecoin (USDT) to the Bitcoin Cash blockchain.
Rust’s last year has been incredible as he worked every day and every hour because the crypto space never sleeps, though this led him to not spend enough time with his family, which meant there was an unquestionable sacrifice from the point of view of his private life.
Rust concludes by saying that he is involved in many projects and that he has received some interesting offers, which is why he decided to take a step back and return to his passions:
“I have a number of other projects that I am involved in and have received some very interesting offers but I am in an unusual situation of being able to take a step back and look at a world under extraordinary disruption. Is this the time to bring together my key passions of bitcoin, health, fitness and even a new social order? Watch this space!”.
Not even 1 year after his appointment, formerly held by Roger Ver, Rust decided to end his journey with Bitcoin.com. The BCH community took the news well, as can be read from the comments on Twitter, but where will Stefan Rust go and what will he do now? Who will replace him as CEO of Bitcoin.com? These two questions are still unanswered.
