San Diego, California. May 31st, 2018 — Most news buzzwords have a short life expectancy, but there’s one that’s defying all odds: blockchain. Thanks to the overwhelming success of Bitcoin, the technology has been thrust into the public eye. Consequently, the demand for blockchain savvy workers has sharply increased. Job platform Joblift analyzed all 48,429,997 US job postings from the last 12 months in comparison to the 1,287 blockchain engineer postings. In terms of average monthly growth, the latter outpaced the former significantly, and while the majority of total postings are still concentrated in traditional tech hub regions, states like Illinois, Massachusetts and Texas are also displaying an increasing demand for blockchain engineers.
