Mastercard NFT lead has quit his role, citing unhealthy working conditions, and minted his resignation letter as an NFT. In a series of tweets, Satvik Sethi explains the conditions that left him no choice but to leave the post. This is despite giving his best effort to “evangelize Web3 for Mastercard leadership & regional teams,” as well as all its Fortune 500 clients and partners.
As a result of leaving his job, Sethi will lose his work permit in the UK and notes he will be based in India for the foreseeable future until something else comes up. However, he is happy to have made the tough decision as it allows him to focus on building on Web3.
“Joincircle is now my top priority. We have 90,000+ sign ups, 35+ partner communities, 300,000+ potential users waiting for the ultimate social platform. Doing justice by all of you is my goal. We have an NFT collection, platform, & other things in the works. Stay tuned, sooooon!”
Despite the loss of stable income, this is a better prospect than having to work two jobs just to get by. Sethi notes that after moving from New York to London for the Mastercard NFT lead role, his salary was cut by 40%, but his workload increased by 200%, and he had to take up side jobs to get by on top of trying to focus on his true love: building in Web3.
As an immigrant, he highlights the issues he had to endure, such as separation from family and friends. Further revealing that he had to beg for his pay at times from the company decision-makers, resulting in emotional distress. He notes that his mental health took a hit as he experienced continuous panic attacks and depression.
Former Mastercard NFT Lead Remains Positive About The Future
Despite not getting a chance to say goodbye to his friends and clients after being logged out of his accounts, he remains positive for what the future holds. In a heartfelt letter, he thanks the management for the role, even though they left him no choice.
The resignation letter can be minted for about $37 as of press time, with 111 pieces so far arriving on the blockchain.
If you want to support me, you can mint my resignation for 0.023 ETH. A piece of my personal history from the year I leaped. Art airdrop for holders in the future as thanks.
Would appreciate RTs, 100% of this goes to survival. This isn’t gambling money.https://t.co/OqxRD6LHvd
