Blockchain Jobs and Cryptocurrency Jobs in the UK:
The Crypto Market in the UK
As the crypto and digital assets sector continues to gain tremendous popularity amongst consumers and large financial institutions, regulatory frameworks are evolving at a rapid pace to keep up with the increased interest.
According to reports, the crypto/digital assets market is still on its aggressive growth trajectory: about 9.8 million people in the UK - the equivalent of 19% of the country's entire population - owned cryptoassets in 2021.
These reports also state that by 2030, up to 20% of the global economy infrastructure will likely be reliant on blockchain-based systems.
From a hiring perspective, the rapid growth of the sector has translated into increased movement from professionals within the industry.
With more and more crypto firms entering the market and enticing top digital assets talent with attractive compensation packages, blockchain professionals find themselves leaving their role more frequently than their traditional financial services counterparts.
Several candidates are jumping between positions in a given year - some of them up to two to three times.
