As the blockchain industry grows and matures over time, the demand for human resources increases. Yet, there is a gap in the amount of qualified personnel capable of doing the job and the number of open positions. Furthermore, the industry has to compete with web development, cloud computing, and neural networks for the talents out there.
This is a strange phenomenon in the job market. If we take the other competing fields mentioned in the last paragraph, the younger, web development, is three decades old. Blockchain, on the other hand, began in 2009 and did not see development potential until the burst of ICOs in 2017 and 2018. So, the growth in the field is less than five years old, but it continues to push the job market forward and demand more and more capable hands.
