Welcome to the world of Blockchain  

Blockchain is an emerging technology that can radically improve banking, supply chain, and other transaction networks and can create new opportunities for innovation. Blockchain technology provides the basis for a dynamic shared ledger that can be applied to save time when recording transactions between parties, remove costs associated with intermediaries, and reduce risks of fraud and tampering. 

A survey from the World Economic Forum highlights that at least 10% of the global GDP being stored on blockchain platforms by 2025.

Cisco Expects Over $9 Billion Spent Annually on Blockchain Projects by 2021

Blockchain-related jobs this year increased by 300% as compared to last year. “Glassdoor”

Demand for freelancers with a “blockchain” asset grew by 3,500% this year as compared to last year. “Upwork”

The skyrocketing demand for blockchain-related jobs has also translated into a significant salary bump. Average salary for blockchain developers is between $150,000 to $175,000 – approximately $15,000 to $40,000 higher than the standard salary for software engineers. 

Looking at huge gap between skill demand and supply Aegis has launched School of Blockchain and launched various programs in BlockChain. 

Post Graduate Program in Blockchain in association with IBM

This PGP in Blockchain is designed for both the developer and non-developer audience. And it prepare you for the career in Block chain, Bitcon and Digital Currency, Cyrpto currency, Fintech etc. Blockchain can revolutionize economics while addressing some of the most pressing problems in society such as trust, transparency, inclusive participation and fair trade. You will gain an in-depth, panoramic understanding of the fundamentals of blockchain, while critically evaluating the processes, practices and tools of this disruptive technology.

Blockchain can do for business what the internet did for communication.

Every second of every day, businesses exchange value with suppliers, partners, customers and others. By value, we mean goods, services, money, data and more.
Each exchange of value is a transaction. Successful transactions need to be fast, precise and easily agreed on by parties participating in the transaction.
Blockchain for business provides a way to execute many more of these transactions — a much better way.
Much hyped Bitcoin uses blockchain technology as its transaction ledger. Bitcoin is an unregulated, digital currency.

How does blockchain work?
As each transaction occurs – and the parties agree to its details – it’s encoded into a block of digital data and uniquely signed or identified.

Each block is connected to the one before and after it — creating an irreversible, immutable chain.

Blocks are chained together, preventing any block from being altered or a block being inserted between two existing blocks.

Who are hiring? 

Tech companies involved in Digital Currency, Cryptocurrency, Fintech are hiring blockchain developers, project managers, IT architect, designers, blockchain lawyers, security experts, technical writers, testers, cryptography experts and consultants.

Skills you need to make it big in blockchain

Programming: Development expertise is at the core of blockchain, and professionals need to be adept at pure programming to make their way into this job market. Different blockchains have been developed using different languages. Bitcoins are running on C++, Ethereum uses C++ as well as Python, and Dragonchain uses Java, Python, C#, and NodeJS.

Web development: There’s a large proportion of backend development work in blockchain projects. Professionals, hence, need to have a working knowledge of web development. Among the most frequently used languages for blockchain are HTML, CSS, MongoDB, and NodeJS.

Integration and interoperability: Mature blockchain applications involve the interconnection of different ledgers across several technology platforms.

Blockchain platforms: In every blockchain project you join, you will witness the use of varied platforms. Selecting a suitable platform — well, that’s not easy and companies look up to their blockchain experts (that’s you) for advice. The Linux Foundation’s Hyperledger Fabric is a pretty important one, as is R3 Corda. Then, there are Ethereum and Ripple. Learn to fit platforms to use cases.

Blockchain security: Security frameworks for blockchain security and regulation are still evolving and quite critical. The key skills to learn are cryptography, hashing, elliptic curve digital signatures, and Merkle proofs.

Gain knowledge on Cryptography, Bitcoin, Hyperledger, R3 Corda, Ethereum and Ripple hashing, elliptic curve digital signatures, Merkle proofs, Smart Contract using Solidity and Remix IDE, Dapps,  ICO
