Simon Morris, the head of product at the Libra Association, has left the project within five months of joining, according to his LinkedIn profile accessed on Oct. 9. The Switzerland-registered Libra Association is a not-for-profit membership organization established to govern the network for Facebook's planned stablecoin Libra.
A BitTorrent veteran and fleeting Libra contributor. Morris's LinkedIn page indicates that he left the Association in August - roughly two months after the social media giant announced its Libra plans. Prior to his work on Libra, Morris was a BitTorrent veteran, working there for almost 9 years across multiple roles until 2016, followed by a second stint in 2017-18 to oversee the design and development of a cryptocurrency project to be integrated into the BitTorrent protocol.
"We remain supportive of Libra's aspirations and look forward to continued dialogue on ways to work together in the future," a PayPal representative told Cointelegraph at the time. Libra has notably faced a major backlash from regulators worldwide since its unveiling in June.
