Blockchain has come a long way since Satoshi Nakamoto developed a cryptocurrency that allowed strangers to conduct financial transactions anonymously and without the need for intermediaries, such as banks.

The ongoing crypto market crash doesn’t affect the interest people have on Blockchain technology, at least according to LinkedIn’s 2018 Emerging Jobs Report.

In the course of preparing the report, LinkedIn used data from its Economic Graph to analyze the positions that companies are hastily hiring for, as well as skills related to those positions and roles that have emerged over the past five years.

The professional social network found that the role of blockchain developer has registered an increase of 33 times in the past 12 months, while cities with the highest demand are San Francisco, New York City, and Atlanta.

Among major skills required for the role, LinkedIn notes solidity, blockchain, Ethereum, cryptocurrency, and Node.js.

Regardless of the current market situation, blockchain technology, including cryptocurrency is growing, although as LinkedIn said, “Only time will tell if blockchain will be a long-standing trend in the job market.”
