18th January 2018 – Cryptocurrency is big news across the globe at the moment. From Bitcoin’s ever-changing status – be it Bitcoin’s biggest daily crash in four months this week amidst South Korea’s crackdown – to the parody Bitcoin rival, Dogecoin seeing its market value peak at $2 billion last weekend. With this in mind, job search platform Joblift decided to investigate whether the buzz around cryptocurrency has led to a spike in jobs associated with the alternative payment method. Joblift has analysed jobs associated with Bitcoin, Litecoin, Dogecoin, Ethereum, Ripple, and Peercoin in the UK in the last 12 months and can conclude that unlike the unsteady peaks and troughs in valuation, cryptocurrency jobs have seen a huge average monthly increase of 19%.
