Note from the CEO: Jobs, Jobs Jobs. The misconception that technology will let companies eliminate humans (oh no. Robots) is being countered with the fact that many large banks and tech firms are actually HIRING and INCREASING staff. At least the ones that are involved in blockchain technology. On another note, how long do you think a firm not getting tech savvy will be around anyway, and would you want to work there? Just saying.
“Most people automatically assume blockchain technology and cryptocurrency will result in job losses. While it is true a good amount of processes can be automated, there will be newer jobs on the horizon. In fact, most of the major US banks are scrambling to increase their staff. That is, assuming they have some affinity with blockchain technology.
This initiative goes much further than the financial sector, though. IBM, one of the leading technology firms in the world, is big on blockchain as well. The company will go through a massive reorganization to cater to this new and disruptive technology. That is not surprising, as IBM has been involved in blockchain for quite some time now.”
