Here, at StormX, it's our team that makes us so great at what we do. So WHO exactly is StormX? We thought it's about time to introduce ourselves to you. Meet our Customer and Support manager - Martijn Haspels, who's now been a part of StormX for just about 3 years!
How did you end up working in blockchain?
I bought Bitcoin back in 2016 and since then I was sold. I quit my job in December 2017, spoke several times with Simon about StormX and helped them in the early days with the community, from there Simon and Calvin offered me the job!
- How do you like to end your day?
The fun thing at StormX is that we literally work 24/7, with so many timezones someone is always working. When my day ends, US timezone begins. I personally really like to end my day chatting with the team about StormX, the things that have happened and new ideas!
- What was your first job?
My first job was working as a tile installer with a friend! It taught me a lot of things, for example that I don't like getting up early in the morning 😁
- What are you most excited about with StormX?
The thing I am most excited about is the upcoming years! We've seriously grown since 2017, and now it's time to spread our wings! With the NBA partnership, the debit card, governance and so many other exciting things, it's a true pleasure to be here at StormX! In my opinion, there is not a better place to be at ☺️
- Favourite upcoming feature?
Personally, I'd have to say the Debit Card. I don't have a crypto card yet so the debit card would be really handy!
As a child, who did you want to be when you grew up?
Funnily enough, I actually wanted to be a stay at home dad!
As the 'community guy' I really love this quote from Simon Sinek (for ones who don't know the guy, check out “The Golden Circle” for a great explanation about influence)
“A community is a group of people that decides to grow together!”
