The week has ended with a further blow to the crypto talent pool, The Block has learned.

CoinList’s Rob Salman, who was responsible for building out its institutional arm with an alternative trading system (ATS), has left the company, according to people familiar with the situation. He joined the token-sale firm as Head of Business Development in September 2018 from IEX, where he began hiring engineers to build the ATS.
