Is blockchain that important?
Crisis situations like a pandemic only increased the demand for blockchain technology and its innovative solutions. Blockchain is a unique and revolutionary technology that can help solve global problems in any economic sector.
This technology is key to building a more transparent and efficient data management system that can mitigate crises like the current coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19).
Originally, the blockchain was created to ensure the security and transparency of transactions performed using cryptocurrency. After some time, however, it turned out that its potential is much greater, and the non-editable database can help solve many problems in various sectors. Thanks to this innovative technology, companies can implement solutions that have not been possible so far, thus creating new jobs.
The growing popularity of innovative technology
Many universities around the world have opened up new courses in blockchain technology, as the COVID-19 pandemic has increased the demand for it and for experienced specialists in this industry.
According to numerous analyses, the most desirable hard skill in 2020 is blockchain technology. On the LinkedIn platform it is the most sought after skill among employers. Occupations related to information storage and transmission technology are well paid and increasingly sought after, perhaps in some time it will be the main course of study for young people.
