How you can become the engine of the cryptocurrency market
The market stands still, interest in bitcoin falls, and it seems that after the winter hype, the topic of cryptocurrencies and blockchain is waning. All graphs show a drop, with one exception – the number of vacancies in our industry.
Decentralized technologies have the future in completely different sectors of the economy. And someone needs to build this future. Therefore, if you suddenly thought about choosing or changing a profession – welcome.
As in any technology industry, programmers rule the ball. Blockchain architects, cryptocurrency specialists, application developers for different operating systems …
Existing projects require development, and new ones that appear every day require fresh blood. The number of open vacancies will increase, and staff shortages will become the main brake on the further development of the industry. Free frames grab like hotcakes. What the infrastructure looks like now is more like MVP (minimum viable product), to a full-fledged product like to the Moon, and perhaps it is you who will help him to be there.
For those who like iron, there is mining. We will leave discussions about its current profitability for later – equipment is being produced, new farms appear, there are attempts to revive cloud mining. All this requires the hands of engineers who understand what hashrate means and are ready to understand the new hardware. New cryptocurrencies appear, discussions are ongoing about which is better – ASIC or GPU. If you understand this, work will be found.
Earned cryptocurrency must somehow be implemented. Trading is far from suitable for everyone, especially stock trading, and it would be strange to urge everyone to join traders. The chances of losing are far greater than earning. But if your work is somehow connected with traditional money, you should think about switching to modern assets.
All banks in the world are looking in this direction and are almost thinking of creating their own cryptocurrencies. So if you suddenly decide to retrain – there should be no problems with employment. Exchanges, depositories, cryptocurrency storage systems are appearing before our eyes. And if the first (amid a boring market) are trying to optimize staff, then the rest are ready to hire.
A separate working revolution took place among lawyers and lawyers. Regulators daily generate laws, regulations, recommendations, and more. Somewhere they recognize cryptocurrencies, but somewhere they don’t, they allow ICOs and publish the relevant documents – or vice versa, they prohibit and threaten with criminal punishment.
Regardless of your specialization, whether it is a criminal law or international, if you add the magic words “cryptocurrencies” and “blockchain”, this can greatly increase the demand for you in the market. In the end, without a good lawyer, no project can be launched today. A year ago, the mention of the word “blockchain” could raise not only the shares of companies, but also the demand for a specialist.
Today the situation has not changed, and there are specialized vacancies in related professions. In addition to programmers who write code, we also need designers, copywriters, project managers – the structure of a blockchain startup is no different from a regular IT project, except for adjustments for the specifics of the business.
Whatever position you take, to understand how bitcoin differs from the ether, and what is the difference between Proof-of-Stake and Proof-of-Work, is still required. Studying the subject and understanding what it is is no problem today: universities around the world have launched educational programs. You can learn everything and in any accessible form that is offline, that is online.
Actually, the abundance of courses indirectly confirms: all the most interesting is yet to come, and we must prepare now. When the market turns around and goes up – the demand for those who at least have a little understanding of what is happening will continue to grow.
For those who can’t program, but can write, there is media. Despite the problems of the industry, there is a need for information, new media appear, new media products. In addition to directly analyzing quotes in the world of blockchain, there are a lot of events that need to be studied, analyzed and passed on.
There are not so many really high-quality publications, there are even fewer professional information products. So if you are interested in topics – start writing, interest in your work will not go unnoticed. By and large, it doesn’t matter in which industry you are working now – with a high degree of probability, the blockchain will come there too.
Storage of personal data, the “Internet of things”, logistics, medicine, energy and oil production, the state and private business, banks, payment systems, numerous financial services … It is difficult to imagine the direction where we have not tried to apply the blockchain. If somewhere the attempts were unsuccessful – it does not matter, most likely, they are not the last. It’s only the beginning. Cryptocurrencies and blockchain made a fuss. Some perceive this as a threat, others as an opportunity.
Scientists have proven that technology works. And even if now the interest in it, at first glance, has fallen, we must understand – what we are dealing with now is the prototype. The first and not very numerous solutions are just appearing, before the adult and large market even before the moon, but perhaps you will help to be there.
