OpenSea’s new chief financial officer, Brian Roberts, faced a firestorm of complaints from the NFT community based on what he said was “inaccurately reported” comments.The world’s top nonfungible token (NFT) marketplace, OpenSea, has denied it intends to pursue a public listing any time soon.

Chief financial officer Brian Roberts sparked a public backlash this week when he told Bloomberg that “it would be foolish not to think about going public.”

The statement caused an uproar among OpenSea’s crypto native NFT community, many of whom see a public listing of the platform as a sellout to large institutional investors. The vast majority of users on OpenSea execute transactions below $10,000 at a time.

“Sucks to hear @opensea is selling out and doing an IPO,” wrote Twitter user Punk_2070, complaining the community rather than VCs had driven its success.

“Just another reason why I can’t wait for @Coinbase_NFT. If we are using corporate vehicles, we might as well use the one that won’t go down three times a week.”

Users also seemed miffed that a share market listing would put paid to rumors the platform was planning to airdrop governance tokens to longstanding community members in a similar fashion to Uniswap.
