A Statement Regarding Stan Larimer on Behalf of the Larimer Family

in bitshares •  3 months ago


On behalf of the Larimer family, I have been asked to issue a statement regarding @Stan Larimer.

Everyone knows that Stan works tirelessly to promote BitShares, advocate for it's adoption, and travels frequently to promote the ecosystem at conferences and events.


While in the midst of his recent travels, Stan has suffered from a medical issue that has resulted in him being hospitalized. Further complications occurred, and he was transferred to a nearby facility that could address his condition appropriately.

At this time, Stan is in critical care but very in a stable condition, and under 24 hour monitoring by a team of physicians. He is making strides to a full recovery. Luckily, his episode happened in close proximity to one of the finest hospitals in the country, in which he is now under their care.


The family appreciates any and all prayers, and positive thoughts for Stan and the rest of his family. Please keep Stan and everyone in your thoughts.

On the subject of currently projects under development, while it is unfortunate that the timing of this coincides with the launch of BEOS, as well as a few other projects. We will be postponing the launch of the rainfall period for a few weeks. We will be announcing a date in the coming days, and we are trying to allow Stan some time to recover in order to allow him to participate in the project.


For the time being, Stan will not be participating in any travel or working in any capacity. If you would like to assist various teams in helping launch projects by supporting them in the best way you can, please do so as it is Stan's ardent wish to see them not just launch, but to succeed. Any assistance of time, skills, or resources is greatly appreciated.

Please reserve your questions and speculation for now, as there will be forthcoming news about his condition and recovery in the coming days and weeks.


The Larimer family would appreciate privacy at this time so they may direct their attention to what is most important to all of us, which is Stan's recovery.

Please direct all business questions, concerns, or assistance regarding communication for Stan to Michael, as he is currently handling all business matters for Stan during this time.

Show your support by leaving a quick message for @stan to read when he is able to see it.

I'm sure that his good spirit and loving family and friends will help him immensely.

Hope you have get well at the speed of a Bitshares transaction @stan. Praying for you.

So very sorry to hear this news. My heart and thoughts will on you Stan and may your recovery be swift and complete.

Thank you Michael for keeping us updated. I'd been wondering where Stan was, but I never imagined this. Indeed very sad and shocking news. I second @onceapounatime sentiment. When I first arrived here in the bitshares community Stan reached out to me with kindness and support. There is no person (except for maybe you Michael) who does more for bitshares and is kind to others along the way. I hope to (at the very least) one day meet you Stan and shake your hand and say thank you. But for now I wish you a speedy recovery. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Get well Stan. You are in our Thoughts and Prayers.
