Blockchain Jobs Boom in Asia Despite Falling Crypto Prices
Recruitment firm Robert Walters recently reported that blockchain-related jobs have gone up to as much as 50% in Asia since 2017, despite struggling cryptocurrency prices in the past few months.
The report says that Python developers are the most sought after, even by companies such as IBM and Binance. However, it was noted that many of those entering the space come from other industries. TenX co-founder Julian Hosp says that his organization rarely hires from within the industry as most are still inexperienced.
John Mullally of Robert Walters also says that while there are a lot of blockchain enthusiasts eager to join the industry, not a lot have the necessary skill sets.
