Your trusted source for the latest employment opportunities and hiring trends in blockchain & crypto. Our weekly newsletter includes a concise roundup of new job listings and key industry insights.
SPOTLIGHT: OPEN FINANCE/DEFI GROWTH
If you follow blockchain-related news, it’s likely you’re aware of an emerging use-case within the crypto ecosystem called Open Finance or #DeFi (decentralized finance).
Put simply, open finance is an assortment of conventional financial solutions and marketplaces built on open-source blockchain protocols (most commonly Ethereum). These solutions unlock significant value for users by removing all central intermediaries (banks, third-parties, etc..) and enabling individuals to freely access & manage their financial assets.
Examples of open finance solutions include: decentralized lending platforms, exchanges & open marketplaces, stablecoins, and smart contract-based asset management funds.
WHAT THIS MEANS FOR JOB SEEKERS
The demand for open finance has exploded in 2019, and a new wave of crypto startups have arrived in a rush to capitalize on the growth. This includes dozens of venture-backed companies working on many different solutions (read: “The 100+ Projects Pioneering Decentralized Finance”).
Open finance certainly appears to be a sector worth exploring, given its rapid growth & long-term potential. Below are some educational resources to learn more about DeFi:
DeFi Pulse - tracks key metrics and growth of leading #DeFi projects
DeFi Prime - education, resources & statistics for #DeFi
