Peter Thiel bids farewell to Meta board
Peter Theil is stepping down from the Meta board to focus on pro-Trump politics
Thiel recently made it to the headlines when he announced his departure from Meta, the parent firm of Facebook, as confirmed by the firm on Monday with no future plans. The Paypal founder and the most controversial member of Meta’s board will shift his focus on aiding former president Donald Trump with his mid-term election agenda. Thiel is set to leave after the board’s shareholder meeting, most likely after May.
A statement issued by Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg reads, “He has served on our board for almost two decades, and we’ve always known that at some point he would devote his time to other interests.”
“We’re definitely onto something big. The need for PayPal answers is monumental”…
In 1999, Confinity.Inc launched the digital wallet app Paypal, which opened up a whole new world of possibilities in the handling of money. At a press conference for the launch of PayPal Thiel spoke, “We’re definitely onto something big. The need PayPal answers is monumental.”
He added,“PayPal will give citizens worldwide more direct control over their currencies than they ever had before. It will be nearly impossible for corrupt governments to steal wealth from their people through their old means because if they try the people will switch to dollars or Pounds or Yen, in effect dumping the worthless local currency for something more secure.”
PayPal went public in 2002 and was sold for 1.5 billion dollars to eBay in October of the same year. After successfully establishing PayPal, Thiel went on to launch a number of highly successful ventures including Palantir Technologies, Clarium Capital, Valar Ventures, and Founders Fund.
