The blockchain and the cryptocurrency space is expanding at a rapid pace. Needless to say, the number of jobs in the blockchain space and the cryptocurrency space are increasing on a consistent basis as well. The problem is that most of the candidates do not have the right skills in order to get these jobs. This is one of the main problems which is being faced by the start-ups in the blockchain industry. Finally, Business Schools, as well as universities, are trying to inculcate the knowledge about blockchain and cryptocurrencies in their students.
The main debate among the professionals is that from where they can gain more knowledge about cryptocurrencies and blockchain. Since they are not able to easily gain this knowledge, it is becoming difficult for them to apply for these jobs and to get these jobs.
Universities all over the world are starting to debate about the inclusion of blockchain and cryptocurrencies in the curriculum. They are teaching various aspects of the blockchain technology to the students. They are teaching about aspects from logistics to mining and to even the technology which is powering the blockchain industry. That is why finally it seems like candidates will have formal knowledge about the blockchain technology as well.
According to David Yermack, New York University Stern School of Business, the business schools are adapting to the latest technological needs very fast. They are changing the curriculum at a faster pace. As a result, they are able to provide better coverage of blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies to students. They have even launched a cryptocurrency and blockchain-based University MBA program. The intake is 230 students and it is growing at a rapid pace. As a result, students are able to know more about the technology quite easily.
One of the main reasons why the vacancies in such jobs are growing at a rapid pace is because of the rapid rise in Bitcoin. Other cryptocurrencies are also increasing at a rapid pace. This is one of the main reasons why more and more jobs are opening up. Even though Bitcoin has fallen drastically from the peak levels but the start-ups, as well as the Fin-tech industry, is confident that it will rise once again. That is why the number of jobs are ever-growing. Moreover, as companies start launching ICOs, it will open up more jobs as companies will be able to raise capital.
Owing to all of these factors combined, the number of jobs which are available in the blockchain and cryptocurrency space are immense. This is leading to more interest from the candidates regarding the blockchain and cryptocurrency courses. The universities are also trying to adapt to this new demand by introducing relevant courses.
