Crypto + NFTs + {tech startup + disrupt + housing market} sounds like *just* the kind of person WMF needs on its board!

Luis Bitencourt-Emilio might be a great person, and just who we need on the Board right now, but the optics seem terrible. Maybe I've been spending too much time in the wrong parts of the internet, but this collection of attributes seems like a cherry-picked collection of what's wrong with the world.

I think it's important to distinguish between "things Wikimedians tend not to like" and "things that are in opposition to the movement's values". 

I can definitely see the former here, but not really the latter.
