With the increase of blockchain startups and companies that use cryptocurrencies, the figure of the blockchain designer is growing rapidly in all sectors.

  1.        Blockchain lawyers and legal advisors

Understanding how regulators could respond to any business move is essential in any industry, but especially in the crypto and blockchain space, where the regulation is not so clear yet. Among the top categories, we find lawyers and legal advisors.
