The demand for blockchain talent is still strong. Despite the bear market and recent industry layoffs, the number of blockchain job postings have been on the rise, and searches for roles involving Bitcoin, Ethereum, blockchain, and cryptocurrency have increased.

Startups are offering top compensation packages, in particular for blockchain developers, as they compete for talent in an industry where supply is limited. The demand for blockchain talent has also grown as established companies, such as Amazon, Facebook, and IBM, launch new teams to work on blockchain technology, and explore blockchain use cases.

Blockchain salaries have risen to be among the highest in the tech industry.

Key findings

We looked at all the blockchain jobs that have been listed on Cryptocurrency Jobs to estimate the average base salary for technical and non-technical roles in the blockchain industry across Asia, Canada, Europe, and the U.S. We created a separate category for remote blockchain jobs.

We excluded salary data points that were either a lot lower or higher than expected. All average base salaries are listed in U.S. dollars. These estimates do not factor in variable compensation, such as equity, signing bonus, or any perks a company may offer.
