In June LinkedIn released a report that suggests that in the Asia Pacific region Blockchain is among the TOP 10 essential skills for employees.
LinkedIn is a social media platform founded in 2002 and designed to connect professionals around the world. It has over 600 million users from 200 countries worldwide. The platform has a list named “the Future of Skills” and, according to the list, blockchain will be one of the most desirable skills in the near future.
Reportedly, creating and monitoring a distributed public ledger, along with AI, will be in the ranks of the best abilities for the workplace.
LinkedIn remarked that these skills are a clear indication of where the markets are heading currently.
The statement stated further that by investigating what skills companies are looking for, it demonstrates the changes that these firms are expecting.
Blockchain companies and the technology itself are regularly displayed on other LinkedIn lists, according to Cointelegraph. This spring, Coinbase, a US-based crypto exchange, was the only crypto firm to make it to this year’s TOP Companies list.
Blockchain technology had success especially in countries like South Korea, Hong Kong and Singapore. In these countries, both governments and companies are very keen on utilizing the blockchain technology’s potential. Project Ubin, a blockchain-based project, will be used around Singapore from 2020.
