LinkedIn, a job-searching online service platform, has recently announced that there is an extremely high demand for people with crypto knowledge.
According to an October 27 analysis by the platform’s editor Devin Banerjee, data from LinkedIn‘s Economic Graph team showed that job posts in the United States with keywords like “crypto” and “blockchain” increased 615 percent from August 2020.
The data also shows that, while many of the jobs were from organizations that are already crypto-oriented or blockchain-related, traditional financial institution JPMorgan was one of the top employers for job posts in the digital asset industry.
Furthermore, the LinkedIn team stated that financial services organizations are expected to hire more than three times as many staff with digital asset exposure in 2016 as they did in 2015.
JPMorgan’s job ads in July featured roles centered on its worldwide blockchain development activities, blockchain-focused software developers, engineers, auditors, and marketers. Within a single week, LinkedIn posted over 30 job openings for its operations in the United States.
According to Roman Regelman of Bank of New York Mellon (BNY Mellon), the prospects in digital assets are fairly wide, and talents can now be attracted in a variety of methods.
Meanwhile, many other significant corporations that are not directly related to crypto or finance have offered positions in the crypto industry. Amazon stated in February that it was looking for a software development manager in Mexico to help with the introduction of a new payment solution.
In addition, Apple stated in May that it desired someone with experience in “alternative payment providers,” including cryptocurrencies, for the post of business development manager.
