A recent shareholder vote to reject a major Riot Blockchain advisory vote on executive compensation. The proposal would pay more than $90 million to five Riot executives.

CEO Jason Les and executive chairman Benjamin Yi were slated to receive about $21 million each. Even the lowest paid executive, general counsel William Jackman, was in line for a $13 million remuneration. The motion was designed to retain talent and ensure the achievement of long-term strategic goals.

“These more excessive executive compensation practices (amongst RIOT and its peers) might lead to pressure on peer companies in the digital assets industry to provide similarly large awards, in the absence of shareholder pushback,” VanEck’s analysts wrote.

The IT industry counted median total direct compensation of $2.2 million in 2022, according to VanEck. Riot other crypto mining companies paid out median compensation of $10.8 million — 390% more than the IT sector.(Blockworks)
