Blockchain to be the most in demand hard skill for the following years


Blockchain technology made quite an impressive name for our revolutionary industry over the last few years and more and more people want to know what crypto is and how to take advantage of it.
Given its popularity, it is said that for the year 2020 ‘blockchain’ will be the most in demand hard skill. At least, this is what LinkedIn analysts seem to suggest in an online study on the most popular online job platform in the world.
A growing number of people indicate in LinkedIn’s annual list of in demand hard skills that ‘blockchain’ is at the top of the list surpassing other hard skills like computing, analytical reasoning, user experience (UX) design and even AI (artificial intelligence).
According to LinkedIn Learning, blockchain-as-a-skill took the lead in 2019 and for 2020 it has become the number one in demand among global employers.
However, we should mention that other studies did not include blockchain technology or they simply did not consider necessary to include it among the possible choices. In “The Skills Companies Need most in 2019 – And How to Learn Them” from LinkedIn Learning, the most in-demand skills were cloud computing, followed by AI, analytical reasoning, people management and UX design.
Can we talk about supply and demand in the job market?
As explained in the LinkedIn Learning blog post, ‘demand’ in the recent study was defined by analyzing skills that were in high demand versus supply. The way that ‘demand’ was measured was by identifying the skills listed on users’ LinkedIn profiles that were employed at the highest rates.
However, the study was only deployed in cities with circa 100,000 LinkedIn members.
The analysis highlights the fact that big companies like IBM, Oracle, JPMorgan, Amazon and even LinkedIn’s parent firm Microsoft implemented blockchain technology across different projects.
It’s also worth mentioning that the study outlines one of the best features when it comes to blockchain technology, that of providing an efficient decentralized method for tracking transactions.
Blockchain is said to be the future of technology, so it’s no wonder that employers are starting to seek new hires who are aware of the technology.
