In 2021, against the backdrop of the rapid development of the field of digital assets, the number of vacancies for specialists in cryptocurrencies increased by 395%.
The social network of business contacts LinkedIn conducted a study and found that last year, American employers posted 395% more job search ads with the keywords Bitcoin, Ethereum, Blockchain and Cryptocurrency.
The number of vacancies in the technology industry increased by only 98% compared to 2020. Thus, the crypto industry has three times overtaken the high-tech sector in terms of the number of jobs created.
The HR staff of companies operating in the digital asset industry were mainly looking for programmers and financial specialists. Previously, the list of the most sought-after professions included miners and traders. The change in the trend in the labor market, of course, indicates the progress of the crypto industry.
The unprecedented growth in demand for experts in virtual currencies and decentralized networks is primarily due to the huge amount of funding for blockchain enterprises. According to research firm PitchBook, investors have invested $30 billion in cryptocurrency startups in 2021.
Moreover, the level of capitalization of digital assets has exceeded $ 3 trillion, and the price of many leading coins has reached ATH. For example, on November 10, the price of bitcoin rose to a record high of $ 69,065 (on the Bitstamp exchange).
