Crypto job ads surged by nearly 400%, says LinkedIn

LinkedIn, the popular social networking site for professionals, said last week that the number of job ads related to the digital asset industry soared in 2021.

Postings related to “bitcoin,” “blockchain,” “Ethereum,” and other terms surged 395% between 2020 and 2021, according to LinkedIn. By comparison, the broader tech sphere “saw a 98% increase in listings during the same time period.”

“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,” LinkedIn News noted in a post.

The Block has extensively covered the hiring boom taking place across the digital asset ecosystem. Fueling the activity is a shift in talent from traditional talent spheres to crypto. 

A survey of 27 crypto firms revealed a headcount increase of more than 8,400 people in the last year, with an average of over 300 people for each surveyed company. Predictably, exchanges and investment-oriented companies led the pack.
