(BlockBar) To help aspiring Ethereum blockchain developers enter the market, a New York-based blockchain firm ConsenSys has released a new Blockchain and DApp Developer Job Kit. ConsenSys notes that blockchain developer rotes have topped the professional network’s list for highest-growth positions in 2018, according to Linkedin’s 2018 U.S Emerging Jobs Report. Apparently, it has increased 33-fold in prevalence as compared with the last year.
The aim of the new resources released with the kit is to help developers meet the growing demand for practical blockchain development knowledge and successfully enter the market. Apart from this an overview of the ‘technical skills base’ is also provided by the kit which a developer should look to master.
The kit includes a blockchain knowledge glossary and it covers topics such as smart contracts, consensus algorithms, token standards, miners and security incentivization, and, the so-dubbed scalability trilemma. The glossary spans public and private key encryption, zero knowledge proofs, digital signatures, trusted execution environments, and other topics in regards with the cryptography.
In order to shore up its market presence, ConsenSys has also recently announced a major restructuring of its various operations. The company seeks worth $200 million in funding. It is to be noted that the firm has also announced that Kavita Gupta would be leaving the wheel of its VC investment branch ConsenSys Ventures. It will now be consolidated with ConsenSys Labs and accelerator Tachyon under one umbrella investment arn.
It is worth considering that ConsenSys also cited a survey from one of the Big Four auditor Deloitte, to find its overview of the sector. Reportedly, Deloitte found that 67.6% of the respondent developers hold a positive opinion on blockchain technology. Another Big Four audit firm PwC cited a study, which reportedly indicated that only 14% had no current plans to integrate the technology and on the contrary 77% of companies surveyed were making headway with rolling out their blockchain solutions.
