Spike in the crypto job by 98% in 2021: LinkedIn


Data reports suggested that a huge surge in the crypto job offerings took place in 2021 in the crypto industry. 

Despite huge volatility in the prices of crypto assets, they are getting better support in terms of adoption. People are not only looking at the crypto industry in terms of getting engaged in crypto trading activities but also they are eyeing to get regular income-based jobs in crypto companies. As we know that the crypto industry is based on the internet and blockchain technology, so people can show their talented works through remote locations easily. So with the surge in adoption, the crypto industry is giving better job opportunities for people. 

The year 2021 was just like another milestone for this crypto industry because of the bull run, even huge ups and downs because of China’s ban on crypto trading and mining. Last year was also better for those crypto talents, who were looking for a better job. 

Report of the job employment social media platform LinkedIn noted that crypto job offerings in 2022 surged by more than 395% over the non-crypto job. And the listing of crypto job posts surged by 98%. That means, almost double the surge in the crypto talents demands.

With this data, Linked noted that no one industry was in a safe situation in 2021 because of crypto involvement, as a part of the uncertainty. However, news posts of LinkedIn influenced other businesses to get insight into crypto. So indirectly Linked also tried to push the non-crypto sector into the sector. 

“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 noted

Job listings by the top exchanges are still continuous and better with the same momentum, as per the LinkedIn report. Where Coinbase has 250 job openings, Kraken 300 and Binance listed more than 600 jobs.
