Landing a job in this situation is difficult and as per Karpeles,
After I came out, I felt like in a kind of dream, like I didn’t feel things were real — Even today I’m not sure yet
Although the Karpeles has found his new job in cryptocurrency investment firm, he has least interest in this industry and trying to solve his bankruptcy issues
The main issue with Bitcoin itself is that the community around it right now is kind of too polarized
Says Karpeles and he further adds that
“Bitcoin right now is, I believe, doomed”

I am more than willing to give a second chance to Mark in this fight’s critical hour
