Cryptocurrency and Blockchain Jobs Have Jumped 50% in Asia Since 2017
While investors have felt the burn of an ongoing crypto bear market in 2018, job seekers in Asia have had a slightly different experience.
According to a recent report by CNBC, blockchain and cryptocurrency jobs have jumped more than 50% since 2017, as both startups and established enterprises have begun building out dedicated focus on the technology.
This data, which came from recruitment firm Robert Walters, also indicated that developers with Python language skills were among the most highly desired for blockchain roles. Interestingly, the CNBC report revealed that blockchain-focused companies are less interested in recruiting individuals already working within the industry, but instead prefer talent from other industries.
