Did I mention I had a call with them about the fraud platform they're working on? The recruiter on the phone explained:

* Fraud platform being built from scratch, would be getting in on the ground floor
* Needed for IPO launch (when I asked "how soon is that" he replied "2 or 3 months")
* Would be built with *zero tech debt* (he emphasized it in a way that suggested he was told to say that)

I was interested in learning more to be honest, why not right, but its a SF position and I'm not interested in relocating.

lol so that's why they were hitting me up

they and others have been hitting loving everyone. i know a lot of devs who've been getting approaches from lovely crypto company recruiters and sending me the dumbest of them. regulatory side too, they want people who know how to cover up the shenanigans

so far they're all having trouble finding people both stupid and craven enough, which is heartening really

also loving nobody wants to go into an office, and for some reason they want people who will go into an office.

yeah there's tons of openings in my field at crypto joints and idk how much they'd have to pay me but it would need to be in actual dollars for starters

To this day I don't understand what banked means in terms of bitcoins, and why people who are unbanked now would be able to get banked with bitcoin. To get any bits and pay with them, by definition, you need internet access. Like, the ad is for an online bits service. Right now, on the internet, I can bank myself by getting a virtual visa card for free. How is bitcoin more functional or more accessible than that exactly?

well you see "legacy banks" are shackled by things like 'federal regulations requiring basic customer identification' and 'having to report suspicious activity' whereas with Bitcoin you can "be your own bank" in that you can just crime unfettered*

(Actually a public ledger with a static wallet address means you can be traced easily. See: Ulbricht, Ross.)

also the ACH system allows for fraud reversals which has always made the worst people mad

having gone to a tech-heavy school I imagine the dorms are chock full of them now, seeing as everyone had at least a lovely spare box as a server years and years ago. the power profile is probably much easier to spot, though, because of improvements in efficient power states

at least the file sharing was a managed liability and they tried to keep it in-campus to avoid external lawsuits. trying to keep a dum dum freshman from burning down a quarter of the quad sounds like a pain in the rear end

I mean if they can send people spicy letters about their torrents in the early 2000s they can expel idiots for hiding a fire hazard in the ceiling
