The blockchain went through it’s first phase in it’s lifecycle, with Bitcoin as main application on the Blockchain and it seems to have passed with flying colors. That means it is a go for business, with large players like NYSE, IBM and Microsoft opting in in 2015.
In terms of public interest, back in january 2015 “blockchain” had 150.000 monthly Google searches, by the end of 2015 it was 300.000. Public interest has doubled in a year and 2016 is gearing up to be the year the Blockchain breaks through in business.
Blockchain applications will increasingly become part of the regular economic infrastructure. In the coming phase, we’ll see a lot of projects emerging and there will be increasing demand for blockchain professionals, people with a diversity in backgrounds in consultancy, finance, government, project management, IT infrastructure, and of course the grunt work, blockchain programming.
People will want to know the Blockchain Pro.
