Bear market and price losses at Bitcoin & Co. set aside: The blockchain ecosystem continues to grow. That can hardly be denied. Blockchain jobs in particular are currently in demand. In our BTC-ECHO study we examined the scene: Who earns how much where? What opportunities do young start-ups have to make money and how much can they own in total? And: How are the people who work in the German blockchain scene divided up, how are blockchain start-ups staffed?
In cooperation with BlockState, BTC-ECHO evaluated the data of over 100 companies from the German Blockchain landscape. We asked for financing models, turnover generation and location of the companies. The main findings were not surprising: With 89 companies, Berlin is by far the blockchain capital, most of them dealing with financial technologies and crypto currencies. But how is the staff made up?
Bitcoin trader start-ups: air upwards
In fact, most Bitcoin trader start-ups (in contrast to sales) are comparatively small according to onlinebetrug. More than half of all companies reported employing 0-9 people, excluding freelancers. A slightly smaller, but still relatively large proportion of the companies surveyed are in the next larger segment: a total of 30 percent of the companies surveyed employ 10-19 people. The upper end of the scale then becomes increasingly thin: only seven percent of the German blockchain scene still employs 20-29 people. Only one start-up plays a part in the top class of the interviewees and stated that it employs 90-100 people.
The lion’s share in the crypto trader development sector
Even though ICOs in particular are often said to do a lot of crypto trader marketing without attaching great importance to technology: The results of onlinebetrug about crypto trader speak a different language. On average, 40 percent of our staff work in the field of software development. Second and third places are close together: 22 percent go to management and 21 percent of the staff work in the area of analysis and research.
