Like many other technologies, Blockchain is becoming very important, companies and institutions have implemented it in different solutions, so that they can benefit from Blockchain’s decentralization, traceability and security.

According to a study by Forbes, from January 2020 until now, the demand for experts in this sector has increased by 40.33%, only in March the offers for remote work related to cryptocurrency increased by 42.86%. The companies that apply Blockchain reduce their costs by reducing the number of intermediaries, and the data provided is immutable, which allows for greater security in transactions or negotiations.

In that regard, it is a good time for companies that did not contemplate the use of Blockchain, to start designing strategies for the implementation of this technology. Likewise, experts in the field have great opportunities to apply for interesting positions in important multinational companies, such as IBM, Cisco, Deloitte, Facebook or Accenture, just to name a few.

In coordination with the BISITE Research Group, the University of Salamanca offers training to professionals who wish to specialize in an area of high demand. During the Master in Blockchain and Smart Contracts, students will learn about the technologies and computational models used in the framework of Smart Contracts, Cryptocurrency and Blockchain.

You can get a 25% discount if you are one of the first 5 to enrol in our mixed mode Master’s Programme in Blockchain!
