Cryptocurrency-related hiring activity remained strong in the first quarter (Q1) of 2024 and registered quarter-on-quarter (q-o-q) growth as companies such as Coinbase and Binance posted significant number of jobs. Yet, April saw a slowdown, indicating challenges amid market volatility and regulatory uncertainties, reveals the Job Analytics Database of GlobalData, publishers of EPI.

Sherla Sriprada, Business Fundamentals Analyst at GlobalData, said: “The hiring activity could have been driven by bearish sentiment prevailing during Q1 2024. Most of the firms were seen betting big on the Web3 job market anticipating an increased adoption of blockchain technology in decentralised finance (DeFi) and non-fungible tokens (NFTs).

“However, the cryptocurrency market has remained vulnerable to significant volatility and hiring trends can be influenced by various factors such as market conditions, regulatory changes, and technological advancements. For instance, President Biden’s stance against crypto can also act as a big blow. In fact, we have already seen April 2024 not able to sustain the hiring momentum set in Q1 and we need to keep an eye on how things unfold.”
