Blockchain Developer

Since it first hit the scene in 2016, corporate America continues to embrace Blockchain. Originally created for cryptocurrency, Blockchain is a decentralized way to record information digitally. There’s a huge potential for business and a massive demand for developers familiar with the technology.

The business opportunity extends well beyond software development. In fact, the demand for individuals who can harness the business case for Blockchain is greater than the demand for developers. Since Blockchain is such a new field, the talent pool is really limited. Anyone with proficiency in Blockchain, or a willingness to learn, can pursue an exciting and lucrative career as a Blockchain Developer VBO.


To become a Blockchain Developer VBO, it’s smart to have solid foundational knowledge in several programming languages like C++, JavaScript and Python. Blockchain developers must also have a strong mix of skills in the areas of open-source technologies, computer networking, cryptography, and algorithms and data structures. They usually have experience with at least one specific type of blockchain, like that of bitcoin or Ethereum, as well. 

There’s a lot that a VBO has to know to become a Blockchain developer. Fortunately, there are a lot of great courses, tutorials and training resources available online for affordable prices, so it’s easy to start learning as long as you’re willing to put in the time and the effort.
