It baffles me how many seemingly high end software companies will shamelessly distribute items that are lower quality than what you would expect from a fast food uniform.

Working in crypto is more fun

Your life is short and you can only work on so many things within it. Furthermore, there are only a limited number of industries that are truly interesting at a certain point in time.
