Kickstarter CEO resigns but claims nothing to do with blockchain rally

Kickstarter CEO Aziz Hasan is stepping down after three years. He announced his departure in a blog post on the website, reflecting on his time at the company and saying he was “very proud” of the “passionate, skilled and dedicated team.”

“To our team, backers, creators, the entire community – you are what makes Kickstarter such a creative and amazing place,” he continued. “Often beautiful, sometimes unusual, and always inspiring. I end my tenure here with a sense of gratitude and a deeper personal connection to understand how powerful and influential there are in the world Creative projects.” He told Fast Company that “personal reflection” was the reason he said goodbye to Kickstarter on April 4, and that he wanted to spend more time with his wife and two young children.

Hasan put Kickstarter in an odd position. In late 2021, the company announced its intention to put itself on the blockchain. The accompanying blog post sadly grabbed the straw – like most things that try to explain the concept of nonsense – and was subsequently ridiculed on the internet. Backers hate it, creators hate it, and almost no one is a fan except Kickstarter itself. It half-heartedly suspended the program shortly after, but made it clear that its overall stance had not changed.

Hassan told Fast Company that these plans are still very much in place, although “Kickstarter, as it exists today, is not sitting on the blockchain.” But whether people like it or not, they will eventually happen at some point. “We’re going to try to get people to see it,” he continued.

As Vice reported, the company has also been heavily criticized under Hasan for its anti-union practices. It has refused to voluntarily recognize its employees as a union and has had to settle a lawsuit in 2020 related to firing key figures in the union’s push for work. Kickstarter employees finally voted to unionize in early 2020, becoming the first tech company to do so.

COO Sean Leow will serve as interim CEO while Hasan serves as an advisor to the company while the search for a replacement is ongoing.
