LinkedIn, the social network for professionals, has listed the top 10 of the trending skills for this 2020 required by companies, placing Blockchain in the first place, followed by Cloud Computing and Artificial Intelligence.
According to reports, it seems that the LinkedIn Learning platform, dedicated to training courses, has collected data through its network of over 660 million professionals and 20 million jobs to establish the skills required for 2020.
In the hard skills section, the sector dedicated to blockchain prevails over other relevant technologies, confirming the growing awareness of the entire crypto world.
LinkedIn points out that the new skills in this section are those which change the focus of the work that is being done and that companies, by continuing to collect and analyze data, are looking for people who are able to interpret and act on these data to promote the growth of their business.
This innovation is known as blockchain which, in addition to supporting the use of cryptocurrencies, has become the new paradigm for storing, validating, authorizing and moving data on the Internet in a secure way using any digital tool.
LinkedIn Learning also invites users to discover the most requested areas by companies in 2020 by recommending courses. In the case of blockchain, here are the courses chosen by the social network:
- Blockchain Basics with Jonathan Reichental;
- Blockchain Beyond the Basics with Jonathan Reichental;
- Blockchain: Learning Solidity with Emmanuel Henri.
As a result, Blockchain skills are the most popular in the US, UK, Australia, France and Germany, more popular than cloud computing in second place, artificial intelligence in fourth place and UX design in fifth place.
This ranking reflects the research carried out not only through the LinkedIn platform, but also directly by the world’s giants.
Over the past year, many companies such as Facebook, which hired a blockchain consultant, or Amazon, which was looking for an engineer to bring advertising data to the blockchain, are examples of how peer-to-peer technology is not exclusively of interest to the financial sector.
