Evo con .... seriously

I get the need for startups to hire interns and pay lower wages.  I even get the need for them to delay payments.

I mean what incentives would someone with real contacts and experience have here ?  They basically are doing what the founders should be doing.  Evochain scam. Seriously.

Who trusts Microsoft ?  Who trusts IBM?  Sounds like marketing and  slapping blockchain on a product/platform and convincing  the confused VPs and c-level executives this is the way to go. Then the Wipro's of the world will jump in with 25 year olds who have 20 years of blockchain experience and implement it. And people will complain a couple years later and write medium articles  and O'Reilly stories and books on why blockchain fails most of the time.    We know this story.  It plays out the same way all the time now.
