Demand for blockchain specialists in India has boosted the popularity of training courses

Because of the demand for blockchain specialists in industries ranging from banking to law to management, recruiters are looking for professionals with experience. Against this backdrop, leading institutions in India are seeing a growing demand for customized blockchain courses, so education providers are expanding offerings for the burgeoning industry.

Recruiters have posted more than 11,000 blockchain-related jobs on LinkedIn India alone. The leading job portal, naukri.com, has 110,629 listings for blockchain developers in India. Following the job market, job seekers are looking for opportunities to specialize in an up-and-coming field. Following private training organizations, more and more public institutions in India are offering courses in blockchain and cryptocurrency education.

One such public institution is the Indian Institute of Technology at Kharagpur (IIT-KGP), which is offering a 12-week course on blockchain to applicants. Sandeep Chatterjee, an adjunct professor of computer science and engineering at IIT-KGP, said it is useful to study any technology when it reaches its peak.

“In four to six years, we will have experienced and academically trained blockchain engineers, which we are lacking right now because it is a new technology and engineers don’t have the blockchain knowledge in their academia.”

Chakraborty believes interest among professionals and recruiters will continue in the next few years, especially in this country, as India tries to develop new technologies and systems based on blockchain.

A professor of economics and social sciences at the Indian Institute of Management in Bangalore (IIMB) recently said that India needs to focus on blockchain development. Earlier, Reserve Bank of India Deputy Governor T Rabi Sankar called cryptocurrencies a fraud and said that the government should ban them completely. According to Deloitte, despite the uncertainty in the regulation of cryptocurrencies in the country, more than 50% of investors are willing to continue to invest in cryptocurrencies.
