In an editorial published on Bitcoin Magazine last week, columnist and computer scientist Peter Conley reported that like the internet today, the Bitcoin (BTC) network will provide millions of jobs over the next few years around the world. He explains that new areas related to the development of the bitcoin industry (and not that of the crypto industry as a whole) should be great providers of jobs, which represents a golden opportunity for the youth in the world. global scale.
A surreal bitcoin prediction?
In his editorial entitled “We haven’t begun to capture the first layer of potential Bitcoin jobs”, Peter Conley compares the current development of bitcoin to that of the internet, in its infancy. He clarifies that there are many new types of jobs since the internet became popular and predicts that Bitcoin will experience a similar growth trajectory as new jobs are created.
And to add that in the near future, new jobs will be created around the flagship crypto and could be more important than those of the internet today.
“In 1999, the title of iOS engineer did not exist. If you do a basic search on LinkedIn, you’ll find over 33,000 open positions with that title alone. These are open positions, not the number of people already employed in this position. In 2002, jobs for Front End developers did not exist. On LinkedIn, you will find more than 47,000 open positions at the time of writing these lines. Same thing for the AWS engineer position, non-existent in 2004. Today, you have 203,000 job offers”he wrote to illustrate his prediction.
Moreover, progress has already begun, he was delighted. Indeed, the positions of bitcoin mining and wallet communications manager, lightning infrastructure engineer and bitcoin mining operations manager did not exist. But today, there are dozens, if not hundreds of positions available in these subjects.
Finally, Conley listed several skills that should come in handy. This is about Bitcoin education because like the internet, people will need useful educational content to understand the importance of crypto, how to buy it, trade it, store it, and transact with it. Other skills in BTC mining, BTC engineering, BTC exchange, e-wallet, etc. should be strongly requested, he concluded.
Several new skills are expected to be needed for the further development of the cryptocurrency and bitcoin industry, especially over the next few years. This represents a real job opportunity for young people. Moreover, universities around the world have already started to integrate training modules on cryptocurrencies into their programs.
