Due to the ongoing global CoronaVirus pandemic, many economies are experiencing a recession, but the Blockchain industry is thriving despite it. Although the cryptocurrency market has seen quite some plunges in prices over the past few weeks, the Blockchain industry seems to be taking none of the lag. Recruitments for blockchain tech jobs are on the increase, according to stats from, a job recruitment platform.

Global lockdown Not Impacting Blockchain’s forward march

According to, job listings last December displayed about 114.5 per million blockchain-focused jobs, just before the first new case of coronavirus was identified. By February 2020, the figure had risen to 118.4 per million by 3 percent.

In an interview with Chinese blockchain media on March 25, Jihan Wu, founder of Bitcoin mining giant Bitman, also expressed his continued hope for a crypto market bull run in the coming year.
