According to a new report, opportunities for blockchain developers beyond the cryptocurrency arena are finally starting to appear.
In addition, people working in alternative sectors are starting to consider technology as a reliable application that can lead to higher levels of efficiency and productivity for their operations. Automakers, for example, certainly consider it as something that can improve the automotive industry, according to a new study.
Blockchain is expanding rapidly
Approximately 1,314 different auto executives have been questioned to gather information on where technology is found in the future of automotive mechanics, and about 62% of those who took part said they believe it will be a revolutionary and revolutionary tool in the industry automotive in the next 24 months.
The authors of the study – Matthew Jones, Dirk Wollschlaeger and Ben Stanley – explain:
"Currently the partial traceability of the entire life cycle of a vehicle is very limited, which means that counterfeit parts could be used by service centers in some markets.The implementation of blockchain-based solutions in the automotive supply chain could solve some of the problems related to recalls, counterfeit products and consumer safety … Blockchain could also introduce improvements and operational efficiencies in areas such as financial transactions between ecosystem participants, authentication of car access and experience of the customer and loyalty. "
The report discusses several new positions based on blockchain now available in various industries, with "blockchain developer" being the most common. Anyone taking on this role is responsible for the implementation, design and support of networks based on the register distributed through different stages of production. They must also design a distributed ledger technology to meet the new operational needs and seek out new technical solutions and protocols.
The next is "blockchain engineer", in which the individual works on the construction of a distributed basic ledger infrastructure and the implementation of final products on that infrastructure. They also need to develop document signing frameworks and APIs that work directly with the chain in question.
Few other roles to discuss
A platform engineer provides support and experience to vary distributed accounting initiatives within a company or a specific division of a company. They must develop skills in the field of a chain's architecture and operational requirements. They must also create algorithms, identity authorities and smart contracts.
The last is the architect of the blockchain protocol or protocol director. This person works primarily with government agencies to build a chain credit rating system and improve its financial security protocols. They are required to create and oversee a global platform and collaborate with blockchain engineers to create a "highly scalable" cloud-based system. They are also required to ignite thinking in the blockchain space and further increase the engineering brand of their company.
