I know there should be big difference between various countries.
A developer with two years of experience in China may earn 15,000 a month(21.75 days), or 86 RMB (~12.5 USD) an hour (8 hours a day).

The best blockchain developers can't be bought -- and certainly not by the hour.  Tongue Roll Eyes Tongue

That's true. I saw quite a number of developers come and go in the blockchain industry.

Is there big enough local markets for one to determine a market price for blockchain developers

Also most of them work online, so where they are probably make no difference where they live, as long they have internet access

So developers probably ask for less, thus lowering the cost of a project?

Developers are getting screwed in China. Non-blockchain developers in the US are getting paid around 65,000 Yuan a MONTH. This equals roughly $10,000 a month ($120,000 per year). Especially developers in silicon valley.

Blockchain developers have special skills, most other developers do not have yet, because this technology has not been around for a long time. < Since 2009 > So they can basically write their own salary on a piece of paper, and companies will have to take it, because there are not a lot of specialist Blockchain developers out there, and Blockchain technologies are the thing now.

The average pay for a Software Engineer / Developer / Programmer is $73,957 per year. Most people move on to other jobs if they have more than 20 years' experience in this field. < In my opinion, way too low for a specialist Blockchain developer >

Best blockchain devs have many bitcoins, like Gavin, he has more than 10000 BTC, why he works for others for normal rates? He doesn't need to work any more and coding is his hobby, maybe he will work as a CTO or co-founder in blockchain startup.

Blockchain developers have huge income and why its because big companies bids their salary and they will of course they will choose the best offer. Aside from that blockchain developers are also good in mining coins, they have huge amount of coins in their disposal since they are the ones who knew the market potential of a certain coin. But some developers chooses to make their own coins rather be hired by big companies.

I think there is a difference between a real blockchain developer and a developer working on blockchain related differences. Which do you mean?

The first would work on the code or try to make new exciting projects out inspired by blockchain. These people normally start there own projects and raise money through an ICO or just start with it.

The second can be normal developers that use the normal coding to build services around blockchain. Those should be similar to normal developers in wages.

I am referring to the latter. These days most developers are just following the money.

That sounds like a conflict of interest to me.

Blockchain technology is not that simple, so only the highly skilled and tolerant users try to stand and engage into development. Others just move on based upon the difficulty experienced. Also several developers try to create their own coin, I've met a person personally who has good tech knowledge.

Source? I have never seen Gavin posting his BTC totals? He gave away bitcoins per hour back in the day, with his faucet.  Roll Eyes .... In any way,

most Blockchain developers like him are multi-skilled, so they can be employed for any other project too. These guys should consider handing

knowledge down to the second generation of Blockchain developers. { write educational courses and books }  Roll Eyes

Look at these salaries :

Blockchain is a brand new emerging technology, an emerging technology that everyone wants and everyone needs knowledgeable developers to implement. I'm sure that blockchain developers are paid very generously.

Wouldn't a blockchain Dev just run their blockchain for themselves or rent it or something ?
Why would they sell themselves out by the hour when they can make so much more themselves instead of just handing a money maker over to someone else.
