A Day in The Life Of …
With fast-paced innovation, the role of a blockchain professional is ever-evolving. However, generally, there are four types of career roles you may find yourself in.
The first is research-oriented and involves working with critical infrastructure and other chain-specific challenges. Employees under the Ethereum or Bitcoin communities would fall under this category.
The second type of role would be as a developer who helps build applications on the blockchain. Your main tasks would be creating on-chain solutions for businesses, and continually optimising performance using specific mechanisms.
The third type of role would be as a developer who performs external audits of blockchain implementations and specialises in blockchain security.
And finally, you could be working as a developer whose job involves one of the above three categories, but with a focus on improving the UX (User Experience) in terms of interacting with the blockchain.
