Honestly, I'd be happy to do this more often, but I don't have many recently laid-off friends who want to work for your crypto startup before it starts paying for itself.

It’s not about “doing their job” it’s literally networking, which everyone should be doing. You help them fill a role or two, keep in contact with them and they’ll probably start thinking of you when it comes to better positions to fill. How is this any different than seeing a “now hiring” sign somewhere and telling your neighbor’s teenager to apply? It’s called networking for a reason.
