Bitcoin and blockchain related jobs on LinkedIn have grown in number roughly by 306% in the last 12 months.
At the same time, in the first 11 months of 2017, LinkedIn job postings with bitcoin (specifically) in the title grew to 4,917, which is equal to 5,753% growth. This number is even higher than the growth of bitcoin itself (>3,151%).
“The rise in the value of Bitcoin and other digital currencies over the past 12 months has opened the market up to many retail and institutional investors who were previously sitting on the sidelines,” a representative of Coinbase exchange said in a latest statement.
Though cryptocurrency job market is still relatively small, Coinbase now already has roughly 200 employees.
CEO of the exchange Brian Armstrong claims, that the company will continue “to invest heavily to scale the platform.”
It is hard to define specifically blockchain and bitcoin listings, as both notions are often mentioned in a couple: about 4,541 of LinkedIn job postings, mentioning bitcoin also mention blockchain as well.
