Maybe a slightly off topic but, have you ever considered taking a job as a Blockchain engineer?
Not interested? Well what if I said that the average salary for a Blockchain engineer is around $180,000 and that in 2018 we have seen the demand in this field rise by 400% - still not interested?
Or maybe you are, so let’s take a quick peek at exactly what on earth a Blockchain engineer is and what skills you need to become one.
Blockchain was originally developed for tracking bitcoins, despite that the technology has potential to be used across many different industries, a fact endorsed by us seeing the likes of Microsoft, Facebook and IBM seeking out engineers in this specialism.
More than just a software developer with embedded programming skills though, you really need to have a hybrid skill set backed by experience which also contains a keen interest in economics, data analytics and auditing with all their related concepts and, of course, the ability to adapt fast to change.
If you want to dig into this there are numerous online courses to satisfy the beginner through to expert, just Google “Blockchain development course”.
Is all this worth it? Well, again just a quick search within one major UK employment agency reveals 789 Blockchain engineer jobs available.
I also happen to know of one engineer who diverted down this track just three years ago and now has well over a six figure annual income.
