Major institutions in India are experiencing a surge in demand for tailored blockchain courses as education providers offer more services to the growing industry.
Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman announced in a recent budget speech that the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) will launch the country’s own central bank digital currency (CBDC) this year, along with a 30 percent tax on crypto income.
While the future of the country’s cryptocurrency industry remains on the fringes of regulation, new opportunities for blockchain professionals in the public and private sectors are becoming clearer to students. Recruiters posted more than 11,000 blockchain jobs on LinkedIn India, of which 144 were new. Job portal naukri.com has posted around 110,629 job postings for blockchain developers in India, posted by recruiters such as IBM, Capgemini and E&Y.
