Cryptocurrency startups have an important role in the development of the entire blockchain industry. However, while many business owners have great ideas that aim to change the world, some don’t invest in developing the most critical aspects of a business, causing employees to quit.
After being hired by a cryptocurrency startup, Roland Guirdonan, from Chad, Central Africa, thought he was lucky to accept his first job offer in the world of cryptocurrencies. She later realized that although it seemed like a dream job, it was more of a nightmare that she had to run away from.
In an interview with Cointelegraph, Guirdonan noted that the company, which he declined to name, allegedly released products that don’t work and required employees to work long overtime while managers play games for who gets rewarded for their efforts. He explained:
“The company’s products aren’t really working, because they’re not putting too much effort into it. […] But still, we tried to work on it and try to make it work, but it wasn’t working.”
He also added that, Even if the products didn’t “work properly,” the company’s employees had to work overtime, working on projects that he said were already “dead.” To make matters worse, he further alleged that managers selected people to reward while others worked harder.
“I love being in the crypto industry and all that, but I had to quit because it became really like a little bit too much for me. It wasn’t healthy.”
Despite the bad experience Guirdonan became a believer in Blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies after learning about other projects in the sector. “I chose to stay in the cryptocurrency sector because I believe in technology and I also believe in projects like Bitcoin and Ethereum,” he said.
Guirdonan believes that cryptocurrencies are really the “future of money”, even though the markets are currently down. He explained that this new belief made him not want to miss out on anything within the sector. He said:
“Despite everything that happened, I didn’t let that stop me from exploring the industry more and then discovering more about blockchain.”
He also encouraged anyone who is interested in join the blockchain sector. Guirdonan believes that “there is really an opportunity for anyone who wants to join this space.”
