We’re currently in the midst of a new burgeoning industry with blockchain development.

Blockchain technology is very much in a nascent stage, however this disruptive technology has already managed to take the world by storm and has experienced a boom like no other in recent times.

With many well-funded projects now eager to build out their blockchain network and deploy decentralized applications on top of them, there’s a great shortage of capable, competent blockchain developers.

With billions having been funneled into this sector, the pay and demand for blockchain developers has escalated with projects bidding against each other to attract…

But who are these whales??

Well, they consist of the early adopters/hodlers of Bitcoin and other altcoins, Venture Capitalists, cryptocurrency hedge funds, investment bankers, and retail investors who got in early to trade or invest their way to millions.
