Proof Point Findings:
  • Blockchain – Distributed digital ledgers that record, authenticate and prevent duplication of transactions using algorithms and specific set of rules, without need for central authority
  • Chinese Employment – 86% of Chinese companies surveyed by Deloitte are currently investing in blockchain-savvy talent in 2018, with rest to follow by next year (12%) or future (2%)
  • Top Current Investors – More than half of companies in Mexico (56%) and Canada (51%) also hired staff experienced in blockchain in 2018, with approximately one-fifth more planning to do so in both countries by 2019
  • Future French Hiring – Highest growth expected for French companies as 40% plans to hire employees with blockchain-related skills in 2019 and another 12% in future
  • United States Lag – Though more than half of U.S. companies are currently investing or will invest in staff with blockchain skills, 15% have decided not to do so and 20% are undecided in 2018
  • Key Growth Drivers – Include increasing sophistication and expansion of blockchain applications, continuous expansion of blockchain use-cases across industries, proliferation of companies using blockchain-based third-party solutions and growing business demand for implementation of emerging technologies that can improve existing processes
