AltMarket will be back online June 7, 2021
We cannot express our gratitude at your patience and how humbled we have been at your support during the last few months of downtime. We upgraded our exchange last summer and towards the end of November identified some glaring engineering flaws which simply had to be remedied. Bringing the old code back online wasn’t an option.
We rely on the arts and entertainment industry, and the pandemic hit us hard along with so many in the business. This pause in the action gave us the opportunity to review and re-imagine our marketplace within the space we have come to occupy in the markets and finally realize our mission of serving artists and the arts. The pandemic completely annihilated the strategy we were executing since 2019 for live events.
This re-imagining of our business to realize our goals came with reorganizing our internal structure to lean into each team members’ strengths. As a result, I would like to say that I am honored and humbled to have accepted the unanimous nomination of the board to become Chief Executive Officer. I would like to thank Bryce Weiner, our outgoing CEO, for his effort and dedication in bringing us to this point, yet happy to announce he will remain with the team as the Chief Technology Officer and General Manager. This reorganization is the first of many things we will be announcing which will bring our mission and vision for the future into crystal clear focus. The rise in popularity of NFTs has provided an environment where all of the knowledge, experience, and technology our team can bring to bear will truly begin to shape the future of both crypto and music.
We value and appreciate all of those who have come to join us on this far and look forward to new relationships as we forge ahead on this mission to the moon and the stars!
