Blockchain Developers on High Demand

Blockchain developers are tasked with designing the architecture of blockchain networks. As a result, they are required to assist in building services and products associated with this technology, such as smart contracts and decentralized applications (Dapps). 

Blockchain solutions are being touted across the globe, including India, because of the distributed ledger technology that prompts transparency as all relevant stakeholders can view the process in real-time. Immutability is also instigated because of tamper-proof records. 

Some of the Indian cities where blockchain developers are in high demand include New Delhi, Hyderabad, and Bengaluru.
