In a business of software, Software engineers or developers are the builders of the digital world and just as traditional developers uses programming languages, blockchain developers too need to get comfortable with some different programming languages, such as Python and C++.
And, when it comes to Software and programming, India is undoubtedly the leader in producing large number of software engineers and developers. For emerging technologies like blockchain India is leading the race in this too.
According to Software developers market analysis, carried out by London-based blockchain consulting firm, Dappros, the United States and India are the leaders when it comes to absolute number of blockchain developers in the countries worldwide.
Top 10 countries by absolute number of blockchain developers
- United States
- United Kingdom
Top 10 countries by relative number of blockchain developers (% of population)
However, it is to be noted that this does not mean that India & U.S. do not have skill shortage of blockchain developer because of very fact that these are absolute numbers and when one counts absolute number of something for a country it does not consider its proportion to its overall population size, or simply the saturation.
Thus, when it comes to how each country is saturated by blockchain developers in proportion to its overall population size, Malta, Luxembourg and Singapore are top three countries leading the list.
According to the report, while Malta has estimated 46 blockchain developers per 100,000 population, India on other hand has just 1 blockchain developer per 100,000 population.
The United States has 8 blockchain developer per 100,000 population while Singapore has 36, says the report.
Social networking and job website postings have been analysed for Blockchain, Ethereum, Solidity, Bitcoin and Hyperledger developer profiles.
The relative saturation of blockchain developers per country has also been analysed with a different set of countries taking leading positions in the ranking.
