 Four Must-Have Blockchain Skills

 Blockchain’s hype is fading, and businesses are seeking professionals who can actually implement the technology, according to KPMG. 
 
Here are the top four blockchain skills you need to launch a career in the field, according to KPMG: 
 
1. Business Acumen: Blockchain transcends all business siloes, and people throughout an organization - from IT and finance to procurement and the mailroom - are touching the tech. Someone working in the space needs to understand how the different parts of the business work to define the best-use case and value propositions.
2. Tech Literacy: It’s important for people working with blockchain to understand its technical underpinnings and how to apply that knowledge to a use case. Employees on a blockchain team should understand the differences between technologies including the cloud, ERPs, and networks, and when to use different tools and platforms. On the blockchain development side some knowledge of coding - such as programming languages like JavaScript, HTML and solidity - is needed. 
3. Data Analysis: Blockchain teams should include one data analyst who can understand and make use of the data gleaned from a blockchain, and present it in a meaningful way to a variety of people across the business. 
4. Hacker Mentality: Because blockchain is a relatively new technology, blockchain workers need to have a hacker mentality, in terms of being open and able to explore and experiment by hacking the problem from a business and tech perspective, and working collaboratively.
