As Bitcoin’s price goes, so does interest of investors, speculators, and, now, job seekers too, new data from job search website Indeed reveals.

Indeed tracked the number of job seeker searches for “bitcoin”, “blockchain” and “cryptocurrency” per million for the past two years. Between October 2016 and October 2017, searches on those three topics rose by 481.61 per cent, but in the year since they declined 3.06 per cent. Interest spiked late in 2017 before beginning a steady decline early this year.

Employer interest followed similar, though less dramatic patterns. Between October 2016 and October 2017, employer searches rose 325 per cent. They rose 25.49 per cent since October 2017.
