“Facebook and Google offer lavish perks to keep their employees happy, but there’s one thing they can’t provide: the chance to work on cool cryptocurrency projects. That’s why top talent is leaving in droves.
This is the view of Olaf Carlson-Wee, a prominent crypto figure, who was employee number 3 at Coinbase, and now runs Polychain Capital, the country’s biggest crypto investment fund.
“What we’re seeing is an absolute exodus from many of these major tech giants like Facebook, Google, LinkedIn and Snapchat of really high quality talent who are now starting cryptocurrency startups,” said Carlson-Wee, who based the assertion on recent encounters in the Bay Area.”
