500,000 more jobs in France by 2030?
The blockchain industry has been growing for several years. In 2021, there was a 395% increase in job offers in the United States related to Bitcoin, blockchain and cryptocurrencies compared to the previous year. This information was provided by LinkedIn.
Around 4 times more blockchain-related jobs were created than expected based on the general trend over the same period. In general, more people are employed in technology-related professions, however, this is true at a much higher rate in the blockchain industry.
Some jobs in this field require a significant amount of programming knowledge. This includes blockchain engineers and developers, which are the most popular positions in this field. They require a general understanding of the cryptocurrency ecosystem.
According to a PwC study, traditional companies multiplied their blockchain projects in 2020. Furthermore, the same study found that companies invest an average of around $ 1 million in blockchain-related projects.
PwC predicts blockchain will add $ 1.76 trillion to global GDP by 2030. France is expected to receive $ 58.5 billion from these effects. This is derived from a PwC study that blockchain technologies have been researched.
By the end of the next decade, France could employ 500,000 people with new blockchain jobs.
Jobs related to blockchain are growing faster and are paying even better than average. In France, a novice blockchain developer can earn over € 44,000 per year. In addition, they can earn up to 90,000 euros.
By traveling abroad for work, developers can significantly increase their salaries. Remote positions are also often offered by recruiters, making it easy for them to find talent anywhere in the world.
Salaries for blockchain developers are higher than for traditional developers in the United States. The country is still considered the birthplace of blockchain technology and offers the most attractive salaries in this field. In 2021, the median salary for a blockchain developer was $ 175,000.
There is a big difference between the number of women and men in the blockchain development community. Currently, there are few certification training courses in this niche. Most blockchain developers today are self-taught, usually people who were programmers but want to grow in this field. Note that according to a study by the French Federation of Blockchain Professionals (FFPB), 56% of blockchain professionals have not received initial training in the field.
Given that blockchain is an emerging technology that is attracting a lot of interest from companies, it is not surprising that so many people are involved in it. Blockchain-based companies have a promising future as the demand for their services far exceeds the available supply.
