Hyperledger highly values professionals with proficiency in distributed ledger and blockchain technologies. This includes having a community of business professionals who understand both the technology and the potential applications to solve business challenges. These skills will be highly relevant for many years to come. It’s hard to argue there is an industry that will not be touched by blockchain in some way and a candidate credentialed through the edX Professional Certificate program, would be tremendous asset to any organization.
