Social media  category is good to freelance job. This category will quickly help a project. So in my opinion it will be very popular.

Following and partly working in the crypto industry for more than 5 years, I see potential for the following disciplines in the crypto industry to do freelance work (ordering from high to lower potential):

  1. Security consultants
  2. UX Designer
  3. UI Designer
  4. Marketing
  5. Sales
  6. Community manager
  7. Tester
  8. Developer

As the crypto industry is still in its infancy, currently we see a lot of need for developers, but I think that will change in the next couple of years.

As previously mentioned Blockchain is a growing field, and offers a great job opportunity. The increasing demand for talent for Blockchain has led to technology being the fastest growing of the 5000 skills in the market today. A Blockchain developer in the U.S. can earn about $158,000 per year compared to other software developers who earn $105,000 per year. smok The scope of the work is not limited to full-time work, but at the same time, a demand is emerging for freelance blockchain developers who can earn $150 per hour. Singapore has Blockchain developers who are millionaires and are paid in ethers.

The I.T sector has to be the most important factor for the overall success of cryptocurrencies. So that would take into account things like design, coding, online advertising and much more.

Explaining to the masses how the blockchain works and why it has such a vast possibility is key in building the use of crypto. Most new people are using it as an investment tool rather than a currency. The understanding of it would broaden its scope.

I think the developer of blockchain could be the main independent work.

Who doesn't dream of a secure career and a stable professional life? A good salary, a stable job and the development of a professional career is the dream of every individual. To keep up with today's fast-growing competitive market and to stay ahead of the crowd, it is essential that one is well versed in the latest technology and equipped with the innovation and discoveries that are unfolding in the universe. Blockchain is the latest technology that is on the way to laying the foundation for a decentralized future. As a result, Blockchain has become a field that has flourishing job opportunities. There is a great demand for Blockchain talent.

As previously mentioned Blockchain is a growing field, and offers a great job opportunity. The increasing demand for talent for Blockchain has led to technology being the fastest growing of the 5000 skills in the market today. A Blockchain developer in the U.S. can earn about $158,000 per year compared to other software developers who earn $105,000 per year. The scope of the work is not limited to full-time work, but at the same time, a demand is emerging for freelance blockchain developers who can earn $150 per hour. Singapore has Blockchain developers who are millionaires and are paid in ethers.

To be a Block Chains Developer, you must have a passion for business, an understanding of computer language, and a zeal to create something innovative. In addition to this, there are specific skill sets that you must possess. In this blog, I will emphasize the prerequisites for becoming a Blockchain developer.

Companies, looking for Blockchain talent, hire candidates for numerous positions. You need people with a deep knowledge of Blockchain, with experience in the creation and management of distributed ledgers, able to implement Blockchain in various areas, and so on.

Most of the companies are formed by a team of developers and professional experts of blockchains. These guys are expected to know the principles of the Blockchain system along with strong software development skills.

Have acted as an advisor on multiple blockchain & crypto currency related ICO's!

The most popular freelance category in the Crypto industry would probably be blockchain building via programmers. I've worked in an advisory position only within the Crypto industry but am currently taking courses to learn in depth about blockchain analysis!

Essentially, a freelance job is one where a person works for themselves, rather than for a company. While freelancers do take on contract work for companies and organizations, they are ultimately self-employed.

Hello guys. I strongly believe that translators can help the ecosystem grow. Not everyone knows English well to understand technical and investment terms. This will allow for more people to enter the cryptosphere and learn all about this great technology.

Survey filled. A crypto freelance website would be used by crypto users, who are usually very tech adept. I think the most popular categories would be those currently pumping ICOs: software development, marcom, translation, community management. 

But if you ask me, the best way to go about crypto adoption would be to make it user friendly for FIAT users as well, and to just be an all-around great freelance website, enough to compete with Uplace, Feelancer and Fiver. Projects should be paid in crypto but people should be able to buy/charge their account with crypto through the site so they don't have to deal with the acquisition of the coins, which is probably the most significant barrier to adoption by the lay man at the moment.

Crypto enthusiast and in love with travelling

It seems that today everybody wants to be a freelancer. It is of course basically nothing wrong with that, but the problem is when so many people is doing that kind of work they tend to set lover price to get the business and because of that all have to lower the price. Which is good for customer, but of course means less income for freelancers. 

The key to success as a freelance is so by my opinion to be better than majority in the area in which you are freelancing and also to properly respect yourself and not work below the good price. But of course, if you want to work like that you have to be good. There will always be demand for skilled freelancers and fair amount of customers which will be prepared to pay higher price to get the top quality.

 

With the crypto industry I believe many kinds of freelancers would be in demand, for example programmers, content writers, social media managers etc. The reason for that is that crypto in general is at the moment still very volatile and companies grow and die very fast. So because of insecurity many will not be able to afford fully employed personnel and will instead rather hire freelancers and pay them by-project.

In my view, it will be the category of Freelance 'Crypto Lawyers'

The contemporary crypto economy became too eclectic to have some certain “most popular” expertise, as for me. But a number of specialists will always be in a significant demand in crypto.

- blockchain developers;

- specs for statistic data processing (R language);

- experienced crypto traders (pump-&-dump expertise);

- prolific observers of crypto environment;

- creators of an “around-blockchain” content;

One special category of specialists should be emphasized separately – insightful crypto-visionaries capable of creating revolutionary new concepts that moves the whole crypto industry forward. This is rather avocation than expertise. IMHO

I find that there's a genuine need for all kinds of freelance work paid for in cryptocurrencies. I would imagine that programming could take an early lead, followed by design and other content production. However I am leaning towards the enterprise sector hiring administrators, skilled workers, lawyers and consultants as freelancers as well.

Design could be a good one! Just looking at CH, there were very few posts for any design graphic tasks. That tells me not many of us( me included) have the know-how for graphic design.

In my opinion, jobs like data analyst and editors of educational information articles would be the best as freelancers in the world of cryptocurrencies. On the one hand, we need experts in AI and Bigdata in order to study the big chains of blocks. On the other hand, since little is still known about Blockchain, more information and many more educational classes would be needed to integrate the whole society.

Don't listen to me because of who I am, I'm nobody like everone else.

The obvious answer to the most popular category would probably be programmer. Other people have said that and I'd guess there is a good chance its right. But personally I'm not sure all that many blockchain programmers, as a proportion of the total, are working as freelancers actually. I think a lot of the time the work that is available requires more of a longer term commitment than that.

Since there are so many bounty hunter types and so much need for outreach, marketing and education I would say perhaps the most popular freelance category would be writing or social media marketing or something like that.

I agree with the marketing and education aspect. Crypto is still so new & many people aren't on board yet or are very skeptical.

1) I filled out the survey

2)  I think freelancers should have professionalism and the best expertise in the field above all. The blockchain is the key of cryto industry. So, a best technical expertise realted blockchain is a top priority.
Because Crypto industry is also a business, so I think marketing professionals, contents creators, and Dapp developers are the first choice. Additionally PR media manager will also be very helpful to new crypto joiners.

Completed. 

 

I think that sales and marketing will be the most popular, regardless in crypto or not these are still some sort of business and need sales and marketing to keep the business afloat. I think that development could be, but I feel that more of an application process and vetting will be needed.

3-IOT and blockchain application developers.

4- AI and Blockchain applications.

5-Supply chain and health care  will be completely dependent on the blockchain.

I filled out the survey. I think the most popular freelance category related to crypto will be teaching, as in teaching about crypto and all the advantages and benefits. Explaining wallets, exchanges etc because that does get confusing. I think the big jobs like programmer, coding etc will not be freelance work. I believe these freelance jobs would be 'worlk from home' opportunities and they could be done at any hour of day or night, appealing to a larger group of potential freelancers.

6 days ago

I think much the same freelance jobs and projects would dominate. But there would be more programmers and developers and there would probably be a lot of crypto exchange and conversion professionals.

Cryptocurrency enthusiast, avid reader, rapper and SDG advocate.

I think the most popular freelance category of expertise within the crypto industry will be blockchain-related. Therefore, jobs within the niches of artificial intelligence, blockchain software engineering, web design, website creation, dApp creation, crypto marketing, crypto mining, etc. will be the norm in the coming years. All other areas such as photography, blogging/writing, vlogging, programming, social media management, graphic design, etc. are already saturated with enough talent and will always be choked. Many people aren't familiar with the concept of blockchain and I believe there will be a serious demand for people with blockchain skills as is evident even now. However, don't forget people like me who love writing/blogging and social media. We might be in the choked sector but we're as equally important.

1. I will say that content creators will be in higher demand since more things are still been done and needs to be done there will need to do more "thinking out of the box" in order to create more and better content for the continuity of the project and to attract investors.

2. And also administrators, I see that a time will come when projects will need to leave the ordinary to do the extraordinary like, like using other means t go and get investors for their projects like going to organize seminars and workshops to attract the older set, and this will definitely need a lot of planning and administrators, for example, the smart contract project.

but in as much as more things are still to be done, becoming a professional in your area of expertise is the best tool to have at hand.

Hello Guys, well talking about the popular freelance category with the crypto industry, it will be promotering and crypto-analyst freelance job, in order to promote and forecast the crypto prices respectively.

6 days ago

One of the most difficult aspects of cryptocurrency is education and understanding exactly what cryptocurrency is. The most common questions asked is "How can Bitcoin be worth anything, if it doesn't actually physically exist?" 
Having said that, solving this problem doesn't actually equate to dollars (or crypto) in your pocket. A 'crypto advisor' category needs to exist.
In comjunction with education, we can find the means to teach someone how to use, profit, and trade cryptocurrencies, this can help spread the word and increase adoption and usage. This in turn can be a profitable venture for someone willing to advise, educate and employ the required skills for their clients.

Completed the survey, and I must say, all the questions were relevant.

I think the best category would be supply chain, marketing and finance. I suggest you focus on these areas.

I believe the most popular freelance category of expertise within the crypto industry is marketing. With the ups and downs of this volatile market, you have to keep spreading the hype. When no one buys, everything dies.
