Andreessen Horowitz (a16z) partner Chris Dixon has recently joined the board of directors of leading NFT marketplace OpenSea, the company co-founder and CEO Devin Finser has announced.
He has said:
“I am delighted to officially welcome Chris Dixon to the Board of Directors of OpenSea. Chris has been a huge influence in shaping my views on Web3.”
Dixon will take the place of ex-a16z partner Kathy Hawn, who joined the board of OpenSea in July last year. Then the marketplace raised $100 million in a round led by Andreessen Horowitz.
At the end of 2021 it was known Hawn planned to leave the company.
According to OpenSea:
“Kathy has been another invaluable source of wisdom for OpenSea over the years. And thanks to her long-term relationship with Chris, she was able to make a smooth transition and stay by our side as an investor.”
