Ripple and IOTA are hiring amid the employment crisis
Overall, the Ripple behemoth is advertising 72 jobs, including five jobs for recruiters for its San-Francisco office.
It seems like the company might be expecting to hire a lot more people to expand their staff in the next 12 months.
Not only Ripple, but IOTA is also spreading the word about open vacancies for the blockchain platform.
The IOTA Foundation seeks engineers to work on IOTA smart-contracts, IOTA identity and other major projects.
This is happening amidst the global economic crisis, massive layoffs caused by the Chinese pandemic and the rise of the unemployment rate overall.
