Careers that Evolved with Cryptocurrency
Cryptocurrency has exploded over the past year or two and doesn’t seem to be stopping. You may have friends and families talking about investing in Bitcoin or Ethereum, you might not realize it but it’s creating jobs. From cypto startups to established companies, the job market has never looked so good for blockchain enthusiasts.
According to research from job search site Indeed, job postings mentioning “blockchain”, “bitcoin” or “cryptocurrency” have increased by 621% since November 2015. And supply is growing along with demand: they also report a 1,065% growth in searches for jobs mentioning those three terms.
From developers to project managers to miners to data scientists, there’s a broad spectrum of jobs available in the cryptocurrency business. There are even specific job search sites featuring these postings now, such as CryptocurrencyJobs.com. Some roles merely incorporate blockchain technology; others focus on it.
These jobs may entail working with a currency that’s already been built, such as Bitcoin or Ethereum–or they may be an ICO (Initial Coin Offering) project where team members build an entirely new currency using blockchain.
