Crypto is becoming more and more a part of our lives. More and more people are interested in it. The traditional media is talking about it more and more. Attempts to regulate it are becoming more present as well. It is therefore normal that such a craze leads companies to be interested in the sector. This will create jobs in the crypto field and moreover the recruitment has already started as indicated by the Linkedin platform.
Growing interest, blossoming jobs?
This year 2021 has been marked by a very big rise in crypto prices. Bitcoin and Ethereum to name a few have seen several new ATHs. Not to mention the altcoins that are bringing their share of news. Whether they are for NFTs, decentralized finance (DeFi) or Play-To-Earn (P2E) these new developments bring new ideas and therefore new technical challenges.

These new challenges obviously attract new players on the crypto scene. We have seen it recently with Nike or Adidas. But it is obvious that companies, even more focused in the technique related to the use of blockchain, are entering the field. And who says new players says job offers. And the crypto sector is not to be pitied, quite the contrary.
Crypto jobs in full bull run!
The professional social network Linkedin announced last week a very strong increase in job offers in the crypto sector. Indeed, Linkedin News made a publication saying that the proposals for a job in the crypto field had increased by 395% in the United States between 2020 and 2021. It’s worth noting in comparison that offers in the broader tech sphere, meanwhile, increased by only 98%.

Not surprisingly, the most sought-after positions are still engineering or development positions focused on blockchain. A survey answered by 27 crypto-focused companies gives an increase of over 8,400 people in the sector. And each company surveyed has hired an average of 300 people this year.
The crypto sector brings a slew of new technological challenges. The first to master them could well be the biggest players of the next few years. Many companies have understood this and are looking for new talent in the field. Especially since there are still many improvements to be made in the sector, starting with a real decentralization.
