The MIT Media Lab's first digital currency director is transitioning out of his role as the leader of the research initiative.

To be announced later today, former White House senior advisor Brian Forde will be migrating to MIT’s Sloan School of Management where he will serve as a senior lecturer and teach two classes on cryptocurrencies. Forde cited other factors as influencing the decision, such as his desire to move back to Los Angeles, his recent engagement to his fiancee and his desire to focus on a forthcoming book.

Representatives of MIT's Digital Currency Initiative, first launched in 2015, reported that the transition has been pending for months, while Forde said he has been seeking to initiate a September transition since May.

Speaking to CoinDesk, Forde commented on how the MIT-based project has thus far played a key role in organizing events, promoting diversity, funding development and embarking on research projects aimed at advancing blockchain technology.

He said he was perhaps most proud of the work done to promote student interest in the emerging technology, calling this the group’s “main priority”.

Representatives from the DCI said there are currently no plans in place to fill Forde’s role. MIT Media Lab remains under the leadership of director Joi Ito.
