Blockchain crowned as hottest skill in 2020 ahead of AI and cloud computing

The revolutionary Blockchain has been termed as the most sought after ‘Hard Skill” in the technology sector for the year 2020 by LinkedIn

Meaning that while the world is still debating over the idea of cryptocurrencies especially Bitcoin, the underlying technology behind it is slowly on the verge of being universally accepted.

According to a LinkedIn blog published back in the previous week “blockchain” beat technologies like artificial intelligence, UX design, and cloud computing to be crowned as the most in-demand skill in the United Kingdom, United States, France, Australia, and Germany.

As per the LinkedIn post, “Blockchain has emerged as a solution to businesses seeking answers to problems from the once shadowy world of cryptocurrency. Meaning that you do not have to be in financial services to be seeking new hires who specialize in or have worked in putting blockchain to use.”

The company owned by Microsoft then went on to explain the benefits for recruiters of having an added edge by having knowledge of the underlying technology behind Bitcoin, blockchain technology.

As per seen on the LinkedIn post, “[…], Companies seem to be saying that the potential [of blockchain] is worth the gamble, Blockchain has become a line of business for a who’s who of the corporate world — IBM, Oracle, JPMorgan Chase, Microsoft (LinkedIn’s parent company), Amazon, and American Express, to name just a few.”

LinkedIn then went on to explain the difference between hard and soft skills. 

Skills related mostly to specialized knowledge and technical abilities are Hard skills as they are more focused on an employee’s aptitude for executing specific tasks. According to LinkedIn for software developers, proficiency in the C++ programming language would be termed as a “hard” skill.

 How an employee behaves, their cognitive skills, how they think or how an employee performs the above-mentioned tasks are all examples of soft skills.

To individuals who are looking for some inspiration before exploring what Blockchain has to offer, LinkedIn published an article which recommends learning the programming language used to write Ethereum smart contracts, Solidity to blockchain enthusiasts.

Back in the previous year, as per reports, job site Indeed had witnessed huge demands for blockchain employees, however, people applying for blockchain jobs were on the decline.

There still remains a big question mark over the aspect of making money through investing or trading cryptocurrency in 2020, however, learning about blockchain and working with the revolutionary technology can definitely be a good career path to look forward too.
