KPMG publishes a report listing four skills required to engage in blockchain-related occupations

According to the cointelegraph, KPMG, the four major auditing firms, identified four skills needed for blockchain-related careers in a May 16 press release.

KPMG believes that the successful deployment of blockchain technology depends on professionals with technical literacy and business acumen. Relevant people need to have a business acumen to gain insight into the specific processes in the business, which is critical to developing and defining high-demand use cases and value propositions for the project.

The importance of technical literacy is to understand the actual operation of the blockchain. KPMG said it's important to understand how to apply this knowledge to specific use cases.

KPMG recommends that professionals in this field should have data analysis skills to understand and apply the data in the blockchain, as well as the “hacker mentality”, which requires the team to be open and able to explore and experiment through “hacking”.

Earlier this year, a survey released by KPMG showed that 48% of executives believe that blockchain may change the way they operate in the next three years. When asked about the possibility of implementing a blockchain in their company, 41% of respondents said they might use the technology. As for the advantages and disadvantages of decentralized technology, 23% of respondents believe that blockchain can help improve business efficiency.
