ICO, IPO & Blockchain — The Buzz is wearing off | At Jumpstart HQ in Hong Kong, we get inundated daily (including weekends) with emails, messages and press releases full of buzzwords, in particular ICO, IPO and blockchain (Is there anything that can’t be linked to it? Yes, but you wouldn’t know from all the buzz around it).

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought a lot of challenges for employees working from home. As we are fast approaching the post-pandemic world, we have to start getting accustomed to heading back to the office again. No doubt, it is going to be difficult adjusting to the long-forgotten habit of getting ready early in the morning, putting on your finest work clothes, working till 7pm in your suffocating cubicle and dealing with horrible bosses and gossipy colleagues face to face.
