New job roles ranging from support to development roles involving Blockchain are expected to grow as the technology becomes more widely adopted. At some point, your organisation is likely to introduce Blockchain as the new enabler to your operations or in your existing job role, and you may be required to integrate the technology into your existing ecosystem.
