VISA Wants to Hire a Blockchain Engineer: OMG.

Starting out my morning research on, I was shocked, no, blown fu*king away by a new post by @acidyo about Visa’s intention to hire a BLOCKCHAIN ENGINEER!

Yeah, the big one, fu*king VISA, (you know that one that’s sitting in your wallet/purse right now in the form of a credit/debit card) wants to hire a blockchain engineer…………now.


The time has come.

The big boys of Visa are not going to sit by quietly on the sidelines of massive disruption and innovation in the blockchain space. NO! Visa is wanting a piece of the soon-to-be massive blockchain pie.

This is huge news. Visa is already a bit behind the curve, if you know what I mean. Um, I don’t think they know about Graphene technology. But still, this will be a very interesting development to watch. Speaking of watching, I almost peed my pants (along with all the Silicon Vally Venture Capitalists who want a piece of the blockchain pie) when I watched this hilarious, ridiculous, fabulous, unbelievable video that describes exactly where we are at in the blockchain space. You must watch this:

This is yuuuuuuuge, people.
