Positive Growth of Employment Opportunities in Crypto and Blockchain Sector
Blockchain training institute: Great news for anyone seeking a career in the blockchain or cryptocurrency industries. Positive growth of employment opportunities in the crypto and blockchain sector. The job search engine, Indeed, published a report revealing that people seeking employment in blockchain and cryptocurrency domains have increased significantly. It is also evident by the fact that job ads related to crypto and blockchain have also increased, as seen by the 26% growth from 2018-2019, succeeding a four-year trend of 1,457% rise in these domains! Meanwhile, other industry-specific job searches saw a drop of around 53% in the same time, which followed a long recession run. As per Indeed’s analysis, the passion among job-seekers increased in late 2017, the time when cryptocurrency was on a bull run, wherein Bitcoin’s price peaked to its all-time high of $20,000, however, it has gradually dropped after reaching the high. Going deeper into the report, the top five job postings in the current year, were all related to computers, with the most common positions being that of:
Additionally, Deloitte, IBM, Accenture, Cisco, and Collins Aerospace featured in the top 5 employers that posted jobs related to blockchain. However, Ernst & Young joined Deloitte in the top 10 as one of the Big Four companies to post blockchain openings. Nevertheless, companies in the cryptocurrency and blockchain business also posted numerous openings, wherein they ranked as follows:
Coinbase – 7th place
Overstock.com – 8th place
tZERO/ Ripple – 9th place
Circle – 11th place
Kraken – 12th place
ConsenSys – 13th place
Apart from these, banking firms JP Morgan Chase and Signature Bank, occupy the 14th and 15th place on the list. Unexpectedly, one of the pioneers in the telecom sector, Verizon, is the only company from the telecom sector occupying the 10th place in the employer’s list posting blockchain-related jobs. Even though Verizon has invested significantly in blockchain, and also filed for a patent related to this technology, it has not made any important declaration in this domain. Lastly, as per Indeed’s report, it forecasts an upward trend of jobs in the crypto and blockchain sector in the year 2020, even with high volatility in prices and ambiguity in regulatory norms that oversee the crypto industry.

Text extract from TBI's Daily Bit http://two-bit-idiot.tumblr.com/post/97100768474/bitcoin-is-inferior-to-apple-pay Last week I wrote about the big Apple payments reveal and how I believed it was a net negative for Bitcoin. I’ll double down on that argument today in the wake of the introduction of the iPhone 6, Apple Pay and Apple Watch (which I’m more excited about than the iPad, although I’m sure the first version will suck), and I’ll explain why mobile commerce and point-of-sale retail will probably be crappy areas for bitcoin companies to invest in going forward — especially if they operate in a developed economy. But first, the good news… Apple is going to have a monumental impact in converting people from their leather wallets to mobile ones. That will be true for both mobile purchases and PoS commerce. Tens if not hundreds of millions of global consumers are probably going to use the iPhone’s new mobile wallet in the future and thousands of large merchants will invest in the mobile and physical infrastructure to capture that new business. So thank you Apple for helping mobile wallets “tip” to the mainstream. That’s good for your company, good for your users, and maybe even good for bitcoin, the currency, which could easily become another Apple Pay payment method in the future. It’s not so good for bitcoin as a payment rail, though. In fact, I had to scratch my head a bit at the derision so many bitcoiners directed towards Apple in the wake of the formal announcement today. At first glance, Apple’s new bet on “tokenization” systems from leading payment technology companies like FirstData, TSYS and Visa appears to solve many of the same security issues as bitcoin. Apple added a “secure element” chip to its new phone, which encrypts card credentials and spits that information out to merchants via near-field communication in the form of new randomly generated account numbers - kind of like bitcoin’s public keys. Apple never touches the information (although I’m sure the NSA will make them create a backdoor), so the transaction information settles between the merchant and the user’s bank as it normally would - with a drastically reduced risk for fraud or theft. Anonymous? No. Secure and convenient? Yes. How quick we are to forget that killer apps in payments are about speed, convenience and security, not anonymity per se. Most of us (myself included) won’t care that our banks can still track our spending habits. I just don’t want Target losing my card info, and I want my breakfast burrito 30 seconds faster at the McDonald’s drive thru. Apple Pay is going to allow a) instant transactions with b) better security at c) cheaper costs to merchants (my bet), and you’re telling me that bitcoin still has a shot at being a better B2C payment rail anytime soon? I’m not buying it. All this said, there are some pretty big caveats here. I still believe there are many other applications for which bitcoin is superior - particularly in the developing world and for the underbanked. There is also a massive B2B opportunity to build applications which facilitate cross-border transactions that require currency conversions. Even though remittance applications might still be some time away from regulatory or legal viability, bitcoin is still a pretty sweet peer-to-peer, informal settlement method as well. In a world with Apple Pay, it would be nice to see the major bitcoin wallets and payment processors focus on these applications in addition to the niche B2C mobile experiences that bitcoin is uniquely qualified to handle - micro-transactions, m-of-n transactions, etc. I just don’t see Bitcoin payment technology taking off otherwise as a non-gimmicky B2C payments solution. I got a pretty big kick out of Xapo’s Wences Casares and his quote from his recent interview with The Verge where he called B2C bitcoin commerce a “side show for idiots.” I hope that sentiment becomes more mainstream. It’s healthy because it’s true. I, for one, plan to use Apple Pay — not bitcoin — for next year’s Uber rides. Apple has simply done it better.* Again. *I think. There’s an obvious part two to this post, which is also a good follow-up from my post yesterday. It has to do with bitcoin’s health as an investment. I’ll work on it tonight and shoot to post Thursday. Tomorrow I’m going to talk about our friends at NYDFS. Speaking of bitcoin companies and Apple, I’m interested to see how / whether Gyft gets integrated into Apple Pay given First Data’s recent acquisition. I have no idea. Haven’t given it much thought, but seems like there could be interesting possibilities. Final thought on bitcoin for B2C commerce. It’s going to take a while to actually gobble up the raw merchant data, but I think Overstock presents an early and telling case study about the over-optimism of bitcoin as a sustainable source of commerce. Remember when Patrick Byrne said that he expected bitcoin to drive $15-20 million in year one sales for Overstock back in the first quarter? He did scope shift earlier this summer by highlighting that bitcoin would add $0.04 to earnings, while quietly updating his bitcoin sales forecast to “as much as $8 million.” That’s a 50% reduction at least and it reflects anecdotally what we already know to be true: merchants get a bitcoin marketing bump initially, but it might not be a sustainably attractive payment method. Final, final thought. I’m still a bitcoin mega-bull, but I’m also a realist.

Good News vs Bad News: Why BTC prices are not skyrocketing (currently).
Hi Reddit. Long time lurker, first time poster. ... tl;dr: Bitcoin prices will not increase until the user base increases and/or the demand for BTC increases. Merchants accepting BTC does not satisfy either of these requirements. ... Over the past week or so I have seen a few posts here in Bitcoin where the poster is frustrated that BTC prices seem to be falling in the midst of a mountain of positive Bitcoin press (Andreesen's op-ed, Overstock accepts BTC, etc). In addition to these types of posts, it seems every day there are posts here on the subreddit that "the coffee shop, dentist, shoe shiner, paper boy down the street now accepts BTC!" While these are all positive news stories, in the market of economics these stories have ZERO impact on the price of BTC. At it's current saturation, the price of BTC is going to be simply controlled by principles of supply and demand. Bitcoin is no longer a geek-only product. It has matured beyond the influence of small time pump and dump marketers. While the market still is extremely volatile and subject to significant swings, ultimately it won't be a positive story that sends BTC prices rising. I believe, and as Economics 101 reinforces, the price will increase as demand for the coin increases. When I look at the BTC market and attempt to forecast its future performance, it's important to identify stories or events which will trigger an increase in demand of BTC. And we must also keep an eye on items which can produce the opposite - a massive sell off. So, regarding the price of BTC we need to define what is GOOD news and what is BAD news. GOOD news = Increase Demand: More Users, More Security, More Adoption, Easy In / Easy Out BAD news = Decrease Demand: Poor Government Regulation, Security Risks in the Protocol, Security Risks in Wallets, Increased Confusion in the Market, Complex Purchase & Holding Process When we look at news stories, we should be evaluating them from the point of "Will this make it easier or more difficult for people get into BTC?" For the price to reach moon levels, it MUST be easy for your mom to get into the market. Through this lens, stories about your local coffee shop or dentist accepting BTC as a payment are not significant enough to affect BTC prices. Not even stories of the scale of Overstock or Sacramento Kings, etc. Merchants accepting BTC does little to add additional users to the BTC ecosystem. If Amazon.com, Disney, and Coca Cola all announced tomorrow that they now accept BTC, this would be GREAT news. But, it still would have a minor impact on the BTC user base. We should be looking for startups, technologies, businesses, and protocol updates that will open the doors to new users. (And if you are an entrepreneur, you should be trying to help solve this problem.) When I look at the industry, barring any significantly poor US regulation, I see some fairly exciting GOOD news forthcoming in 2014 of this scale. 1. The launch of Circle.com. There has been a lot of opinion and fear about this company. Whether you agree with their association or not, Circle has compiled a who's who of executives from current finance powerhouses - in addition to key advisor in Bitcoin developer Mike Hearn. Although their product or service offering has been kept close to the vest, there is little doubt that Circle will be launching a consumer friendly product that should make it SIGNIFICANTLY easier for you mom and mine to buy into BTC. If Circle is able to make buying and holding BTC user friendly, we should see a huge spike in the user base. 2. The launch of the Winklevoss ETF Tomorrow the Winkelvii go before the NY regulators. I expect the twins will find out early this year if their Bitcoin ETF will be approved. If so, this will open up BTC to every investor and 401K holder in the country. Having an approved ETF will not only increase the user base, but also bring BIG DOLLARS to the marketplace. Talk about an increase in demand!! 3. Improved Security to the Bitcoin Protocol Last week Mike Hearn (Bitcoin core developer) announced some soon to be launched upgrades to the Bitcoin protocol. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=coj3uBrnxIg These are all great security upgrades which are important to the scaling of the protocol. If the Bitcoin userbase increases, and as the BTC market cap scales, having forward thought like this is vital to ensure the ecosystem can sustain itself during scale. These are extremely complex issues, and it's very comforting to hear that the core team are feverishly working to get things button up to support world wide adoption. I'm sure there are other market significant companies or events which will also occur. Though, if just one of the three above come to fruition this year, I have no doubts we'll see a huge spike in BTC adoption, and thus an increase in the price. No matter what the market prices have done over the past month, I expect GREAT things for BTC in 2014. I hope you do too.
