Riding a wave of record prices, and the growth in businesses created to service the cryptocurrency ecosystem, Bitcoin as a network and bitcoin as a currency are quickly becoming international job creators. According to popular employment-finding websites, last quarter alone saw a jump in related work offers.

Bitcoin-Related Jobs Fastest Growing Category of International Employment

Annie Lin of CNBC writes “Bitcoin-related jobs are the fastest growing category of role on international employment marketplace [website] Freelancer.” In fact, data shows an “82 percent growth in the third quarter,” Ms. Lin continues, with “work related to cryptocurrency” an upward trend, citing the “company’s periodic report, [which] tracks top trends in online jobs based on the listings on its platform.”

The Australian-based company claims to be “the world’s largest freelancing and crowdsourcing marketplace,” connecting “over 25,986,955 employers and freelancers globally from over 247 countries, regions and territories,” according to its website.

In an recent company Fast 50 Report, Freelancer noted “China’s ​banning ​of ​[initial coin offerings] hasn’t ​stopped ​cryptocurrency ​bitcoin ​and ​Cryptography ​emerging ​as ​hot ​trends ​to ​watch ​for next ​quarter.” ​

Under the report’s sub-heading, One to watch, the company details how “Bitcoin ​topped ​the ​Fast ​50 ​Report’s ​emerging ​skills ​in ​the ​third ​quarter ​of ​2017, ​up 82% ​in ​the ​last ​three ​months ​alone. ​Cryptography ​is ​also ​up ​59%, ​as ​reports ​of ​the ​digital ​gold rush ​continue ​to ​flood ​in.”

“Our ​global ​community ​has expertise ​across ​over ​1,000 ​areas, ​so ​if ​you ​are ​living ​in ​Poland ​but ​would ​like ​help with ​setting ​up ​your ​ICO, ​then ​we ​give ​entrepreneurs ​a ​place ​to ​turn,” remarked company CEO Matt Barrie.

The report continues with a market round-up, stressing how cryptocurrencies “​have ​soared ​in ​recent ​months, ​bitcoin ​passing ​USD$6,000 ​mark ​at ​the ​time ​of releasing ​this ​Fast ​50 ​Report. ​But ​it’s ​not ​just ​mining ​and ​rigging ​jobs ​that ​are ​being ​posted,” they write.

“Recent ​projects ​include ​an ​opportunity ​for designs ​for ​an ​Initial ​Coin ​Offering,” Freelancer reveals, “a ​CTO ​with ​Bitcoin ​knowledge, creating ​new ​altcoin ​currencies, blockchain ​whitepapers, cryptocurrency ​content ​writers, help ​with ​a ​gambling ​blockchain.”

Emphasizing the international flavor of bitcoin-related job growth, the report also notes support “​for ​the ​trend ​is ​coming ​from ​the ​highest ​places ​in ​traditional ​finance, ​with ​the ​IMF’s ​chief Christine ​Lagarde ​recently ​devoting ​a ​third ​of ​her ​speech ​to ​the ​potential ​of cryptocurrencies when ​addressing ​the ​world’s ​bankers.”
