4 skills needed to be successful in blockchain

As employers adopt blockchain technology for different purposes, candidates looking to set themselves apart can adopt these four skills, according to consulting firm KPMG and cited by VentureBeat.

The four skills needed to succeed:

1. Business acumen: Blockchain touches more user roles, personas and entities than other emerging technology, and because each user has a different view, blockchain experts need to have a deep understanding of specific processes across the business.

2. Tech literacy: It's most important to understand how to apply the knowledge of how blockchain works to different use cases.

3. Data analysis: These people are able to tap into blockchain's data and then use the information to present it in meaningful ways. Blockchains are filled with data, but because there is so much, it is imperative to know how to use the information at hand.

4. Hacker mentality: Because blockchain is so new, employees looking to become experts must be open to explore and experiment by "hacking the problem" from a business or technology perspective.
