For all those hardcore ethereum bugs who got stopped out at $13 during last week's 96% flash crash (and in some cases as low as $0.10) we have some good news: Visa wants to hire a BlockChain engineer who is "experienced with Ethereum and blockchain architecture to be a part of team tasked with building distributed application."
There is just one problem: while we are confident compensation will be generous, according to the qualification requirements, "total Industry experience must be 8+ years" which is about twice as long as Ethereum has been in existence, and roughly as long as the very concept of blockchain has existed: perhaps Visa is only seeking to hire Satoshi?
By they way, did we mention that Visa is now working on Blockchain technology, is building a "distributed application" and the successful candidate "will be working in VISA Global Commercial Payments area, team will be building a new payment rail leveraging Blockchain technology and distributed ledger."
As Visa goes increasingly more publich with with aggressive expansion into blockchain - recal last year the company Introduced "International B2B Payment Solution Built on Chain’s Blockchain Technology" with virtually nobody noticing, the recent gains in ETH - if only as the rest of the world rushes in over all the "blockchain" buzz- which has resulted in a 40x return YTD, blowing away every single other asset class, will pale in comparison to what may be coming. Which reminds us of our February post "Ethereum To Soar After JPMorgan, Intel, Microsoft And Others Form Blockchain Alliance." It did: back then Ethereum was $13.
