Blocknubie Cuts Through the Fog for Blockchain Start-ups

A Dublin-based ecosystem for start-ups called Blocknubie has gone live, with the aim of making it easier for entrepreneurs to launch blockchain ventures.

The platform – true to the spirit of blockchain – is also enabling a decentralised and fully functioning blockchain economy by introducing its own cryptocurrency in the form of NUB tokens. A private pre-sale is scheduled for 1 February.

Chain reaction

Blocknubie targets the challenges faced by entrepreneurs who wish to expand and operate in what is becoming a rapidly expanding blockchain market.

It does so through digital assets, including development tools, advisory services, API libraries, blockchain educational resources and, most importantly, the opportunity for both capital and investment.

“We strongly believe that all sectors will have the opportunity to incorporate blockchain into their business,” explained Blocknubie CEO Loughlin Nestor.

“It has been estimated that more than 90pc of start-ups will fail, many of which are due to entirely solvable issues. Growth, deep domain knowledge, business modelling, blockchain adoption and customer acquisition are some real problems in this rapidly evolving market. Blocknubie has been formed to solve these problems.”

Key to joining the ecosystem is a structured onboarding system. A step-by-step process is assisted and enhanced by the use of a number of specialised apps, designed to allow users to analyse and build on their existing core business idea and quickly progress to a fully operational and live business model.

Users within the platform can network with other entrepreneurs, gain valuable insights through a peer-to-peer community and socially engage with blockchain professionals while also continually marketing their services and product offerings.

NUB tokens

Nestor explained that the newly issued NUB tokens will facilitate the exchange of goods and services within the digital market between suppliers, distributors, customers, competitors, government bodies and more.

He said the aim is to provide fertile ground for the growth and expansion of new blockchain-based enterprise models.

“Blocknubie’s vision is to improve how all businesses interact within the blockchain network,” Nestor said. “We are sector- and vertical-agnostic, which allows Blocknubie to truly bring together technology, start-up innovation and enterprise to allow for and accelerate the adoption of blockchain technologies,” he concluded.

Blockchain Specialists: Who Are They and How Much Do They Earn?

Relatively new blockchain technology is developing quite actively in recent years, which inevitably leads to increase of jobs number in this industry. Considering that, the infrastructure is still not very developed well in this area, it can be assumed that the trend of increased demand for qualified personnel will still remain for many years. In this article we will talk about blockchain specialists, find out who employers are looking for, what average salaries are offered, and in the end we will talk about where to learn this craft.

1. Briefly about blockchain technology

Let us briefly remind what blockchain is, and why many people predict a great future for it? So, in simple words, blockchain is an open (that is, public) registry of data, which is stored in separate blocks and has a chain structure. Each subsequent block stores the information about the previous one. For example, let`s take a usual book, which is divided into separate pages, so after 45, there 46, 47 should go, etc. Attempts to change or delete a block, which has already been entered into blockchain, will immediately be noticed by the network.

The increased security of Blockchain is backed up by data storage. The fact is, that the entire data registry has hundreds of thousands copies (depends on number of miners in network), which are located throughout the world.

2. What experts are now in demand in the industry and how much do they earn?

When it comes to blockchain specialists, most people imagine a highly qualified programmer who knows all the programming languages, Morse code, and the depths of cryptography. But in reality, to be a fairly successful developer, you need to know:

  • basics of programming;
  • C ++ language ideally, but this is optional, Python, Java, Golang, etc. will also work.

Having these knowledge and at least minimal experience in programming, one can become a blockchain developer without any particular problems. The wage, in this case, will directly depend on experience, depth of knowledge and a particular company. In Europe and the United States experienced developers can get to $175 thousand per year. But it’s not necessary to be a programmer to work in the blockchain industry. This is not a complete list of vacancies, this young market needs:

  • Investment Director. It is a key position in any crypto startup, because its main task is to search and work with potential investors. This is a quite difficult job, because now many people are still wary of cryptocurrencies and blockchain as a whole, and they are not in a hurry to invest their savings. The salary depends on the amount of raised funds, from which a certain percentage is given to an investment director.
  • Marketer, PR manager. As Thomas Macaulay said: “Nothing Except The Mint Can Make Money Without Advertising”. This profession is very relevant absolutely in any field and the blockchain industry is no exception. To succeed in this position, the specialist is obliged to speak several foreign languages, to have experience in international sales. Salaries of the specialists depend on the scope of a project, as well as a marketing record of a marketer.
  • Bounty manager. The rapid development of the ICO market has led to emergence of brand new professions. This position involves conduction of all processes, interaction and verification of performers for tasks implementation. Salary of these specialists can hardly be called high, it rarely exceeds $1,000.
  • Crypto analyst. This profession implies the deep knowledges of the cryptocurrency market. An analyst should be able to carry out a fundamental analysis of any coin, and on the basis of this data make his or her own predictions of investments growth. This is one of the most promising areas in the blockchain industry, since the analyst’s wages have no limit. Large investors will be happy to pay a certain percentage of commission to a such specialist for a good tip.
  • Lawyer. There is literally “a long row to hoe” in the blockchain field for these professionals. The fact is that legislative base here is still at a very early stage of its development and there is still a lot of work to be done in this direction.

3. Where to study for a blockchain specialist?

Higher-education institutions are already training specialists in this direction. A number of leading universities offer introductory courses into blockchain, cryptocurrency, etc.

To master any of the above mentioned professions of the future, you can take online courses on the Internet, the number of which is sufficient now. But when choosing a training program you should be extremely careful and before entrusting your money and time to some “blockchain guru”, read the information about him carefully.

4. Conclusion

The crypto industry differs with a rather rapid pace of development. To work in this area, you must always keep “your eyes open” and be able to adapt quickly to a new circumstances. Every year new professions appear, which offer new opportunities and high wages.
