Make Money as a Programmer? Learn Blockchain Development
Despite the year-long bear market that has seen the prices of major cryptocurrencies drop 70 to 80 percent, the demand for blockchain developers is still at an all-time high.
According to Mehul Patel, the CEO of San Francisco tech talent recruitment firm Hired, the demand for the blockchain has increased significantly in the past several months. The supply of software engineers is already low, and individuals that are well versed in the cryptocurrency sector are even more scarce.
“There’s a ton of demand for blockchain. Software engineers are in very short supply, but this is even more acute and that’s why salaries are even higher.”
Interview Requests Every Day
Speaking to CNBC, software engineer Dustin Welden, who currently works as an engineer for Globys, stated that immediately after he changed his job title from software engineer to principal blockchain engineer, he began to receive interview requests from both startups in the blockchain sector and major conglomerates on a daily basis.
