1 year lost on a failed startup

How I lost 1 year of life doing failed crypto startup

In April 2019 I decided to completely stop developing my cryptocurrency project ending entire year of full time work in failed tech startup which I wanted to create. During that time:

I spent about 2200 hours hardcore coding, writing, meeting, pitching, calling and everything else related to building a startup - in that case a software product I've implemented ~ 80 000 lines of code which never experienced production usage. Registered company which did not gained any profit only expanses. Finally spent about 10 000 USD on life living costs without any income;

I would like to share my story. I believe it may be an inspiration and bring some answers for anyone who dreams about running own startup. During that time I've done tons of mistakes but I've also achieved a lot of milestones. This was a very interesting adventure and I believe anyone can enjoy that chronicle.

I invite you for the story of a dream and a failure.

Do we need “closed” blockchains?

The blockchain technology spreads. Mainly this can be visible in the context of cryptocurrencies popularity gain (which can be noticed by rising Bitcoin price). Blockchain became useful or even created plenty of new branches like tokenization which who knows - maybe will revolutionize the investments and the way we represent the ownership in general.
