YouTube’s head of gaming, Ryan Wyatt, who was behind bringing over popular twitch streamers such as Valkyrae, DrLupo, and TimTheTatman to Youtube, officially announced that he will be leaving the company following the month of February.
“I will miss YouTube dearly, but it is time for me to pursue other endeavors in life and where my passions are taking me,” Wyatt said in a statement posted to his official Twitter page.
Wyatt will be departing YouTube, and Google, for blockchain company Polygon Studios. “I am fascinated by blockchain app development and am beyond thrilled to enter the web3 space” he said of the move.
Blockchain and Crypto have been making big waves in the industries, and are becoming more and more mainstream in 2022. More businesses are popping up daily, and even Crypto SEO methods are being formulated, along with NFT SEO, to provide niche specific services to the brands operating in the web3 spaces.
Polygon, no relation to the gaming website of the same name, calls itself “Ethereum’s Internet of Blockchains” and is produces an open source protocol and framework intended to help developers build, secure, and scale Ethereum-compatible blockchain networks.
Wyatt is set to lead a part of the company called Polygon Studios, which he says involves “gaming, entertainment, fashion, news, sports, and more.”
According to the company’s blog, that venture will focus on ‘play-to-earn’ game concepts and NFT projects.
