The crypto currency industry is getting so hot that dedicated career services are popping up.


• On Thursday, Coin Desk, a leading source of crypto currency news and organizer of major industry conferences, launched an online "Career Center" with job listings. • It's "no secret demand for block chain skills is high and that finding talent is a real difficulty," Jacob Donnelly, director of marketing, said in a statement. Coin Desk is also hosting a career fair along with its Consensus conference in New York this month.


Listings of "blockchain" skills skyrocketed more than 6,000 percent in the first quarter from a year ago, online freelancing database Upwork said in a report Tuesday. That's far and away the hottest skill on Upwork, and a slight change from the fourth quarter when "bitcoin" was the fastest-growing skill and blockchain wasn't even on the list.


There's an explosion of activity around cryptocurrencies because of that extremely volatile, but extremely exciting, nature of bitcoin. There's a lot of millionaires made overnight and drawn a lot of people in," said Andy Challenger, vice president at placement firm Challenger, Gray and Christmas. "There's sort of a gold rush mentality.


The cryptocurrency industry is still small — the total market capitalization of all cryptocurrencies to date is about the size of one typical S&P 500 company, according to CoinMarketCap. And as with any nascent trend, the risks are high.
