Most blockchain engineering jobs in the U.S. are in Silicon Valley, Boston, and New York City, with a median annual salary of $160,000. Hundreds of blockchain engineers find jobs each month in just those three tech hubs. But the field is growing and spreading fast, with worldwide hiring on track to be in the thousands per month.
Would you like to be one of these new hires who are launching products for startups and creating pilot projects for large organizations? Let’s look at what it takes to land a job as a blockchain engineer.

Blockchain systems are a fundamentally new class of economic organisms. They are decentralized entities that exist entirely in cyberspace, maintained by a combination of cryptography, applied game theory, and consensus.
Delegated Proof of Stake (DoPS) blockchain networks, including Cosmos, Tezos, Livepeer, and Horizen, depend on effective implementation of on-chain governance protocols. When a Delegator selects a Validator from a group of block producers retaining the same percentage commission, an optimally-weighted multivariant vetting process can minimize missed earnings and slashings while strengthening the network.
The Cosmos decentralized network is an ecosystem of otherwise siloed blockchains that interoperate and scale in…
When the invention of the ICO (Initial Coin Offering) was paired with the power of Internet marketing and augmented with bounty programs and airdrops, massive crowdfunding became available to the average startup. Now the fast-emerging STO (Security Token Offering) phenomenon is heralding in a new era of regulated private equity funding. This new world of equity and revenue sharing via digital tokens is coming into focus very quickly.
Compared with traditional venture capital funding, tokenization of securities is a faster, less expensive, and more transparent and efficient method to raise capital, improve asset liquidity, and manage the investor base. …
Blockchain startups looking for token offering success in 2021 must up their ante with transparency. That starts with tokenomic alpha test documentation that establishes a use case based on an easily leveraged network effect. Blockchain innovation must be essential to the project’s functioning and scaling, not just arbitrarily layered on or under the project’s digital infrastructure to make it marketable.
Token investors are no longer interested in profiting from speculative bubbles. The token issuance industry has relinquished its fixation on hype cycling and zeroed in on underlying asset value appreciation and scaling. …
Below are three examples illustrating how blockchain technology facilitates capital formation and asset liquidity, followed by a quick look at the securities tokenization process.
☑ Private REIT Liquidity
· Old Thinking ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ❝Illiquidity makes private REITs hard to buy and harder to sell in an industry still running on spreadsheets and fax machines.❞
· New Thinking 📈 ❝Asset tokenization transforms REIT shares into security tokens that facilitate paperless trading among LPs. Cap table automation saves time. Broker disintermediation cuts costs. Security tokens can serve as loan collateral for stablecoins and cash liquidity.❞
