According to the educational subsidiary of professional social network LinkedIn, Blockchain will be the most needed and in-demand hard skill in the year 2020.
Blockchain is now on the top in the LinkedIn annual list of most-needed hard skills in 2020.
The Skills Companies will need most in 2020
LinkedIn has announced the list of the top ten in-demand hard skills that companies will need in 2020 in the blog post entitled: “The Most In-Demand Hard and Soft Skills of 2020”. In this blog post, LinkedIn learning has enlisted blockchain in the top position. Blockchain has even left behind Cloud computing, Analytical reasoning, Artificial intelligence, and UX design as well in the list. The following are the top ten most in-demand hard skills for the year 2020.
However, blockchain was not included in the list that LinkedIn provided for the year 2019. Cloud computing was regarded as the most in-demand hard skill of the year 2019 in the blog post entitled: “The Skills Companies Need Most in 2019 – And How to Learn Them”.
Blockchain is a transformational technology
According to the LinkedIn blog post, some companies see blockchain as transformational technology. A wide range of global companies such as IBM, Oracle, JPMorgan, Amazon, and Microsoft are using blockchain technology. LinkedIn also praises the potential of blockchain technology.
LinkedIn blog post further reads:
Blockchain has emerged from the once shadowy world of cryptocurrency to become a business solution in search of problems. Which means that you don’t have to be in financial services to be seeking new hires who have background and expertise in putting blockchain to use. So, recruiters should start becoming familiar with how blockchain works, what its perceived benefits are, and who are the people best suited to help your company explore where this budding technology might have a role.
After seeing blockchain on the top in the annual LinkedIn’s list of most in-demand skills for 2020, it seems that the worth of blockchain is spreading rapidly.
