So much upheaval is going on in the world right now that it’s a wonder anyone at all can function. Schools are closed, sports games have been cancelled, travel plans have gone up in smoke and markets are crashing – you name it! It feels like the fabric of everyday life has fallen apart with so many more uncertainties out there waiting to rear their ugly heads.
The Bitcoin world is much smaller than we think. The impact of the coronavirus on it will be significant and yet still not as important to most people outside this realm.
In our day-to-day business, We’re constantly looking for the best and brightest talent to fill our client’s needs.
Between trying to find candidates that have a strong understanding of Bitcoin or cryptocurrency technology is tough enough in today’s market but when you add on an emerging virus like coronavirus into the mix it becomes even more challenging.
Bitcoin has been around since 2009 with some going as far back as 2008 so this industry isn’t new by any stretch of the imagination; however, things are really picking up lately with investors pouring billions into cryptocurrencies at breakneck pace which leaves me wondering what will happen if there was no tomorrow? And then we get word about another possible pandemic – coronavirus – sweeping through the world
The cryptocurrency industry is primarily built on Bitcoin. However in this case, it’s not just a coincidence: Bitcoin happens to be both “decentralized” and digital—which makes sense because so are most of its companies.
The crypto industry is primarily made up of young, creative entrepreneurs and early adopters who are building the future. The majority of these companies have had some type or work from home policy in place for an extended period (many as a way to keep talent). And while it’s true that most teams aren’t fully remote – we wanted to share with you this list of 10 top tech jobs where at least one person on the team works remotely 100%!
The crypto industry has a high number of white-collar jobs, which are perfect for remote work. Software engineers and product managers who manage software development can remotely monitor their employees’ progress without going to an office every day. Marketing executives could also do this on the fly while travelling or attending conferences if they were not in charge of strategy meetings at headquarters like other marketing professionals might be. There is ample opportunity for these types of industries to have more telecommuting options available through chatbots that would allow them to communicate with team members no matter where they live across America from our shores overseas!
The majority of workers in the cryptocurrency sector tend towards being blue collar labor positions – it’s your typical construction worker role, but with different skill sets and abilities.
“While many industries around the world are likely to be decimated by the challenges presented due to coronavirus, IE travel, restaurants, hospitality and sports events etc., cryptocurrency appears much less vulnerable. But is that fully true?
The cryptocurrency industry has been relatively immune to the challenges of this year’s global health crisis. But is it really? There are a number of factors that have contributed not only to its resistance, but also how much more sustainable than other industries cryptocurrencies seem in comparison.
Many people see no need for face-to-face contact and can replace their duties with Zoom or Google Hangouts, etc., which makes them less vulnerable when compared with those working within some sectors such as hospitality (IE hotels & restaurants), travel services (events) and sports organizations where one’s own physical presence would be necessary on occasion for optimal performance. The ability to transact business remotely via online exchanges without any fear jeopardizing security should put crypto at an advantage.
Bitcoin is on the rise again and it’s not just because it is often a topic in mainstream media; its price movements are highly correlated to job postings about crypto and blockchain on Indeed.com (see graph above).
During periods when Bitcoin prices were booming – only decreasing following bull runs like this one that causes people to lose interest as they watch their investments dwindle away or be hoarded by others with more money than them.
But now in the times of corona, where do we go from here?
The crypto industry is one of the few industries today that will be able to continue in full force following a pandemic. The fact that it relies so heavily on technology rather than human contact makes this inevitable, as employees can work remotely and don’t require physical interaction with others. This means those who are lucky enough not to contract the virus won’t have any time off or need for relocation when business continues as usual, even though there may be some limitations such as communication barriers between people due to language differences; they’ll still get their jobs done efficiently without being slowed down by traveling long distances from home!
As we all know about recent events surrounding coronavirus I think many were afraid how would things change within our society since most information nowadays
The crypto industry has seen many swings in the past, but this time is different. The virus that causes coronavirus can change people’s lives forever and we are just at the start of it all happening.
