Controversial Dismissal Sparks Outcry
In a surprising move, OpenAI, the company behind ChatGPT, announced on Friday that CEO Sam Altman would be leaving the company due to a loss of confidence caused by a lack of honesty in his exchanges with the board. This decision has faced heavy criticism from both the tech community and OpenAI employees.
Resignations Follow Altman's Departure
Greg Brockman, the president of OpenAI, was the first to resign in response to Altman's dismissal. Since then, three senior staff members have also resigned, with more expected to follow suit.
Investors Push for Altman's Reinstatement
OpenAI's decision to remove Altman has not been well-received by the company's investors. Microsoft, along with other investors, is advocating for a quick reinstatement of Altman as CEO. Thrive Capital, OpenAI's second-largest shareholder, has also expressed strong disagreement with the board's decision.
Agreement in Principle for Altman's Return
An agreement in principle had been reached between Altman and the OpenAI board for his return and the resignation of all current board members. However, the board seems to be backing out of this agreement, raising uncertainty about Altman's potential reinstatement.
Altman Explores New Opportunities
Reports suggest that Altman is already working on a new company and has received an invitation from Cardano founder Charles Hopkinson to collaborate on a decentralized large language model (LLM).
Worldcoin's Price Reacts to Altman's Dismissal
Following Altman's dismissal, Worldcoin (WLD) experienced a price dip, losing over 12% of its value within 24 hours. However, news of a potential reinstatement has led to a recovery, with WLD currently trading at $2.34 and showing overall positive performance in the last week.

Hello, I’m Timothy Robinson, News Editor at NewsRoomFeed.com, where I turn the world’s chaos into digestible stories. Blessed with a journalism degree from UNT, I’ve been molding minds and spreading knowledge from the tranquil setting of Denver, CO.
My days are spent in the throes of international affairs, political commentary, and local happenings, but when the laptop closes, you’ll see a completely different side of me. I’m an avid tennis player and cycling enthusiast. I never shy away from a good adventure. My Labrador, Rocky, is always by my side as we explore the great outdoors of Colorado.
Traveling is my stimulant. It’s my way of stepping into new narratives, experiencing different cultures, and appreciating the beautiful tapestry of life. Each new place I visit fuels my creativity and broadens my perspective, which I pour back into my work at NewsRoomFeed.
When I’m not on the road with Rocky or lost in a gripping news story, you’ll find me on the tennis court or cycling around Denver. These hobbies keep me grounded and offer a refreshing escape from the digital universe.
I believe in creating a balance between the hustle of work and the peace in nature. So, if you’re looking for a fresh take on news, a travel companion, or an opponent on the tennis court, don’t hesitate to connect. Let’s turn the page on the ordinary and dive into the extraordinary!
