Ignorance is not always a bliss. Why’s that?
About 2 to 3 years ago I thought cryptocurrencies like BitCoin were just a hype of the moment. I didn’t read about it, I didn’t follow news on it, I simply rejected and ignored it.
Fast forward to August 2016
Business friends started talking about this opportunity they would bring to Europe, mining of cryptocurrencies.
And my first reaction was: ‘Here we go again, the next ponzi’. Not strange considering the fact there is a new crypto ponzi launching almost daily.
I never really looked at it, until the friend who launched it in this part of the world sent me a recording of a private webinar he and a select few had had with corporate management, including the founder and owner. So I agreed to listen to it.
I can listen while I work after all. 🙂
I’m not easily impressed with the standard presentations. I’ve seen too many, heard too many and most of them were based on selling stories, no real business behind it.
But this wasn’t a standard presentation call. This was a call for leadership in Europe to get acquainted with Corporate management.
The minute the CEO started talking about compliance my interest was there and I listened carefully. Not just to what was said, but also to what wasn’t said. The art of listening tells you so much more than just the spoken word.
I joined the very same night and haven’t regretted that one minute.
Very soon I learned the CEO would like to have a chat with me. Great conversation, followed by a contact request from the owner, wonderful and very inspiring soul. After having had 2 conversations with both of them I was offered the position of Chief Compliance Officer.
The biggest reason to accept was the type of people they are, combined with the values this company is founded on. It was supposed to be just a few hours a week, but very quickly that became far more substantial.
Because of the almost daily interaction with the Executive team, but especially with founder and cryptocurrency expert, I’ve had a kind of crash course on mining of cryptocurrencies. Why some are just shitty coins, without any real value, the challenges in mining, why we are the best in the industry. This not bragging, it is a fact. We are the most secure, most generous and most favorable.
And with our MultiMining platform just launched, with the newest cryptocoin Zcash just launched and added to this platform, we are ready for growth.
I’m someone who doesn’t do things half, so I started reading about blockchain technology, about specifics of various coins, about what experts think of the impact this will have on our society, on the world we live in… I listened to some TedTalks, then finally had a call with the Executive team and the Director of the Mine we have partnered with.
If I would still have had any doubts whether or not this company could become huge because of the mining we offer and sell, after that call there really is not the slightest doubt left.
Imagine having such call towards midnight. Impossible to go to sleep after that, all information that was shared is just so powerful and ensures a future that is hard to comprehend.
The ambition of the company is to become a Fortune500 company. I think that might be faster than most people would think now.
Brilliant ideas, so much to be added in 2017, it is an honor to be part of this team, this company.
A company that feels very strong about development of people. Personal growth, education on cryptocurrencies and much more.
There already was an extensive list of subjects I have gained knowledge of over the years, but with all this technology, that is rapidly expanding it gets more and more. And I love it and am grateful to be part of it!
But, there always will be people who refuse to gain knowledge on a subject, refuse to change and by that they set themselves up for a life of disappointment, of discontent. While others are progressing through life, they feel they are stuck. Unaware they are causing it themselves.
Ignorance rejects. Refusal to gain knowledge increases the ignorance.
Ignorance is not a bliss in this!
