The crypto debacle, which began last spring, culminated in mid-November with the fraudulent bankruptcy of one of its main platforms, FTX. The sad twists and turns of the past few months on the takeover of Twitter by Elon Musk has resulted in the departure of more than half of its workforce, the exodus of advertisers and the return of Donald Trump to the social network. Meta separates from 11,000 of its employees while Apple and Google freeze their hiring… Silicon Valley seems to be on the brink.
It is very bad to know this ecosystem to believe it. The life of the Valley is made up of adventures and develops even more according to the crises it undergoes: 1993, 2000, 2007, a bit like with the earthquakes, we were waiting for the “Big One” which was slow to come. We may be there, and it would be for his greatest good. Not only will start-ups finally be able to once again hire talents that the Gammas (Google, Amazon, Meta, Microsoft and Apple) have been monopolizing for a few years, but it’s also an opportunity to talk about something other than Web3 .
