Jobs in the Cryptosphere

With the emerging popularity of cryptocurrency, more jobs are becoming available in the field.

There's a ton of demand for skilled workers in the space due to new projects popping up all over the place, and quite frankly, I'm not sure the supply currently meets this demand.

As the technology continues to grow and replace old institutions over the coming years, I expect to see a steady transitioning of the workforce into blockchain/cryptocurrency work.

Do you know anyone who works "full-time" on cryptocurrency/blockchain projects right now? If so, what do they do?

Which types of work in particular do you think will see the most growth as far as employment opportunities and job prospects?

The rise of cryptocurrency is creating a lot of new opportunities in tech, from bitcoin startup jobs to blockchain developer jobs and even entry-level cryptocurrency jobs. Whatever your current skills or level of expertise, it's an industry well worth considering seriously.

The companies hiring for blockchain jobs are willing to pay well for them, too. Paysa reports that the average salary for employees in blockchain jobs is $97,000, and many make more. Even entry-level cryptocurrency jobs stand to pay $50-60,000!

Before we delve into the kinds of cryptocurrency jobs available, it's worth noting that even if you don't get involved in the blockchain programming side of things, you can still make money by investing or trading with cryptocurrency.

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.

Some of the companies searching for these skills may surprise you. Uber, eBay, Capital One, Match.com, and GEICO number among the ranks of companies that have searched for and/or contacted candidates who have listed "bitcoin" or "blockchain" in their skillset. Whether this indicates that more widespread adoption of cryptocurrency is on its way or not remains to be seen--but the interest is certainly there.

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.

Additionally, there are plenty of other blockchain opportunities available aside from programming and trading/investing. These projects need careful and articulate development to thrive like any other company out there.

Skills in marketing, design, and interpersonal communication are all immensely valuable in the crypto world! A project without a voice and deeper purpose is nothing more than a silent project.
