Blockchain technology has been around for quite some time now, and while not a lot of companies trusted it initially, now its craze and popularity is on the rise. Blockchain technology is seeing acceptance and adoption in various sectors and industries, and people are only now realizing its true potential.
This sudden growth in awareness about blockchain, and subsequently its uses, there has also been a steady rise in jobs related to it. As it turns out, one of the Big four auditing firm PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) is the top recruiter for blockchain-related jobs on recruitment platform Indeed, as per the search results on March 30.
So far, PwC, has been an extremely active member of the blockchain community and at press time is responsible for 40 blockchain-related job offers on the platform. However, it is also true that other big four auditing firms are also making appointments in this field, on the platform. It has been reported that Ernst & Young posted 17 such announcements, while Deloitte posted 10.
That makes KPMG the only big four auditing firm which is not recruiting blockchain professionals on the platform. Tech giants IBM and Oracle posted ten job offers related to blockchain as well, while global management, consulting and professional services firm Accenture posted 11.
This last company, Accenture, has been using distributed technology for a considerable time now. It was in November last year, that Accenture deployed a distributed ledger technology platform created in order to manage and track software licenses. As has been reported Accenture has also collaborated with a few major financial firms like Mastercard, to introduce blockchain-based circular supply chain.
A blockchain and financial partner at PwC France, as per reports has recently declared that central banks should leave issuance of digital currencies to corporations such as Facebook and JPMorgan.
