Crypto Related Job Postings Increase Reported by LinkedIn

Crypto related job postings with titles containing terms like “bitcoin,” “Ethereum,” “blockchain” and “cryptocurrency” grew 395 percent in the US from 2020 to 2021, outpacing the wider tech industry — which saw a 98 percent increase in listings during the same time period, according to a recent LinkedIn report.

It should be noted that while most of the job postings were in software and finance, other industries are also seeing a rise in demand for crypto talent. These include professional services like accounting and consulting, as well as the staffing and computer hardware sectors.

According to LinkedIn news, some of the most common titles searched on LinkedIn included blockchain developers and engineers. The San Francisco Bay area, Austin in Texas, New York City, Miami-Fort Lauderdale and Denver were the areas that had the most crypto job postings in 2021, LinkedIn told MarketWatch.
