Over the past few years, there has been a continuous rise in the number of blockchain and cryptocurrency-related jobs. Why? It’s the future of the internet, and the efficiencies that smart contract technology can bring to any industry can both save time and generate money for companies of all sizes. Software is eating the world, and as Vitalik Buterin once said, Ethereum is the destroyer of jobs and creator of better ones.
But even before bitcoin’s all time highs hit the mainstream media, the industry was already rapidly growing, and over the past three years, the number of cryptocurrency related jobs has grown 631%, to upstage blockchain-specific jobs, according to Blockgeeks.
“After being overshadowed by blockchain in previous years, cryptocurrency took center stage in the last bull run, and 15 out of the 18 most popular industry jobs specifically mentioned ‘cryptocurrency’ in the description.”
