From February 2018 to February 2019, we saw the share of US job postings related to crypto, blockchain, and Bitcoin grow 90%.

The interest of job seekers in Bitcoin decreased than the last year but the share of searches related to crypto and blockchain is still up 553% from 2016 to 2019. The article on Indeed says:

For the first time, the number of jobs per million exceeded the number of searches per million. It could be reasonable to assume that if bitcoin drops dramatically again, a candidate looking for a blockchain role would run into less competition than they would after a large increase.
