        5 Tips for Hiring in the Crypto Industry

        Cryptocurrency, Web3, NFTs, Blockchain and the metaverse have dominated financial news over the past few years. We saw the value of a single Bitcoin rise to a staggering $67K in November 2021 before crashing to $30K in June 2022. NFTs have earned endorsement from numerous commercial brands and celebrities, including Paris Hilton.

        Those familiar with the metaverse say that it will be a new way to live, allowing us to create avatars and conduct everyday activities, such as shopping and meeting with friends, from the comfort of our couches.

        The excitement surrounding cryptocurrency and its counterparts has driven a hiring frenzy in companies that want to be the next big thing. Loads of money are being shoveled into companies with big ideas and strategies, and many of these companies are looking to hire people who can support them in their lofty goals. In some cases, companies are looking to fill hundreds of open roles.


        How to Hire in the Crypto & Blockchain Industry: 5 Tips

        Since crypto is a relatively new industry, it’s challenging to find people with a deep understanding of how crypto works and what it can be used for in the future. Consequently, recruitersare best served by identifying critical skills for future success in a crypto-based role.


        Some highly effective tips for hiring in the crypto industry are to:

        1. Look for Excitement
        2. Understand the Need for Training
        3. Hire Quickly
        4. Seek Out Transferable Skills
        5. Realize Your Team May Not Stay on for the Long Term


        The Influence of Crypto

        As the crypto industry takes the world by storm, hiring managers will need to broaden their expectations when seeking to fill roles. A conscious effort should be made to find candidates who are genuinely interested and excited by the idea of crypto and what it means for the future. Crypto is quite complex, and it will require the employee to develop knowledge of the company’s services and plans for the future that may not be intuitive to the average individual.

        Since crypto is so new, it’s unlikely that candidates will have much experience in the industry. Thus, rather than making industry experience a requirement, hiring managers should look for transferable skills in finance, tech, or investments when bringing new employees on board.

        Finally, companies should make sure to offer their employees a robust salary. As they gain experience in the crypto industry, their talents will be sought after by other similar companies. An outstanding compensation package can help to retain employees and prevent excessive turnover.
