Cryptocurrency platforms are on a hiring frenzy to keep up with boom

Amid the rise in cryptocurrency trading and mining in India, platforms in this space are going out to hire talent. Most of the roles are technical, which means engineers are in high demand.

An engineer by education, Abhiroop Gupta, 25, lost his job at a travel consultancy in Delhi during the COVID-19 lockdown. Since he had adequate savings, Gupta decided to use the lockdown as an opportunity to hone his skills in the cryptocurrency space.

He became part of a mining pool, which has made “decent progress”.

The icing on the cake? Gupta now has two job offers in hand, from two rival cryptocurrency platforms.

“I am active on the Reddit cryptocurrency groups and hence I believe that the cryptocurrency platforms took notice. I am yet to decide on where to join since I have two offers for engineering positions,” he says.
