Bitcoin and the cryptocurrency market may be struggling to regain a solid foothold, but blockchain jobs are reportedly on the rise in Asia.
Recruitment firm Robert Walters has witnessed a 50 percent increase in blockchain and cryptocurrency-related job openings in Asia since last year, according to a report from CNBC.
Specifically, Python language skills are reportedly in the highest demand.
Job seekers are also reportedly eager to enter the emerging field, with increases being seen on Asian-market job-search engines like Indeed. Many of those individuals are also leaving the world of traditional technology for the emerging blockchain job market — because those job seekers are simply better.
Jumping on the Job Bandwagon
There reportedly exists a correlation between the success of the cryptocurrency market and interest from job seekers, however.
While jobs themselves have entered what appears to be a correction, job interest is still in a significantly less-volatile uptrend.
