This one's for all of you who love a good chuckle, especially at the expense of those “big talkers” out there.

Now, as you may remember, with Utopia's success, we were soaring high, baby! But with success came a new challenge: We needed more hands on deck. We put out the word that we were hunting for talent. And oh boy, did we get a mixed bag of responses!

We had candidates rolling in like they were auditioning for a reality TV show. There was Mr. “Blockchain since Birth” who claimed he was mining Bitcoin in his crib. Cute, right? And let's not forget Ms. “Crypto Queen” who believed that Dogecoin was, in fact, based on a real dog.
And I mean, a real living, barking dog that would deliver your crypto coins.

But here's where the story gets juicy. We also had these big-shot “investors” reaching out. You know the type – flashy suits, big words, promises of throwing in “huge investments.” They'd start with phrases like, “When I was dining with Elon last week...” or “After my third yacht purchase...” But when it came to shelling out a dime, suddenly their pockets had more holes than Swiss cheese!

One fella promised to fund an entire new wing for our office. But when the bill came? He tried to haggle over the price of office chairs! “Do we really need armrests?” he'd quip.

Then there was the "Whale" who wanted in but would squabble over the cost of coffee during our meetings. “$3 for a latte? Why not just brew it at home?” Yeah, sure pal, and maybe we'll mine some Bitcoin in our basement while we're at it!

But all jokes aside, 2023 was a year of learning, laughter, and yes, a bit of lunacy. We learned that while it's great to aim for the stars, it's also okay to have a good laugh along the way. And as for those penny pinchers and flashy posers? Thanks for the giggles!

Stay zesty, folks! The crypto world might be a roller coaster, but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy the ride with a big ol' smile on our faces.
