Vision a universe of finance, healthcare and the supply chains which carry out your trading activities FASTER and MORE SECURELY than the one we already have. This is not a future story of virtual worlds; this is the potential of today to be made true through blockchain technology. In fact, at its very core, blockchain is a revolutionary device, since it provides a varied bookkeeping system that alters the way of how we deal with digital assets and data. Unlike the conventional payment models, it GUARANTEES secure, transparent transactions without the necessity for one central authority, increasing its effect and trust.


So, who are the designers for this amazing technology? Enter the blockchain developer. These professionals are not just programmers; they are the ones who are leading this enormous digital trend. Through blockchain, they build solutions that challenge previous structures, from introducing cryptocurrencies that are capable of resulting in an alternative banking system to developing smart contracts (an automatic payment method) that improve our legal agreements. 


However, as we plunge deeper into the realm of blockchain, it perfectly comes to the surface that the developers of blockchain play a significant role in our digital future shaping process which is really an exciting time for those interested in blockchain technology.




“Blockchain” is the synonym for the decentralised ledger. The data is not stored in one place like the traditional ledger. It is spread across many computers. This switch ensures no one has authority over the entire account, resulting in high-level security and openness which is not the case with traditional methods. Every user’s transaction or activity record is recorded in a “block.” When a block is complete (filled) it is linked to the previous filled block, resulting in a “chain” of blocks which build the “chain.” The transactions thought to be secure are those that are encrypted. However, encryption is the method used to protect the data by transforming it into a secure code. Thus it guarantees that after recording of a transaction it cannot be altered, and also, it makes blockchain a trusted and tamper resistant system.

This is where the HUGE significance of blockchain is seen from its initial application: in cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin. It provides a place for smart contracts, which undertake manual agreements without ‘’middle-men’’. This smoothens the process AND expenditure. In Decentralised Finance (DeFi), blockchain technology allows financial provision including loans, banking and insurance to be carried out away from traditional banks. Its use is being extended to other industries including supply chain management where the products are being tracked through the whole production up to delivery, and also in health care for the safe management of patient records. It should be obvious that the above examples demonstrate numerous advantages of blockchain across the breadth of industries.


Blockchain developers are specifically skilled in building and implementing blockchain technology, who serve as a digital framework architect in the virtual world.Their work includes the creation of blockchain protocols, designing the structure of the blockchain system, crafting smart contracts, and developing applications (dApps) that work on blockchain technology. These developers are the people who realise the revolutionary function of the blockchain and put it into practice in businesses such as financial services, supply chains, voting systems, and identity management.

The software toolkit and skill level of a blockchain developer is diverse and specialised. They need to be well-versed in programming languages particular to blockchain such as Solidity (for Ethereum smart contracts) and general-purpose languages like Python, JavaScript, and Go.

Understanding ‘Cryptography’ is also crucial, as it is the technology behind blockchain’s security function. Programmers should come to grips with blockchain platforms and tools such as Ethereum as well as Hyperledger Fabric that are used for the creation of decentralised applications and blockchain solutions.

The 2 types:

There are generally two types of blockchain developers: core blockchain developers and blockchain software developers:

  1. The main focus of the core blockchain developers is to CREATE a secure and robust blockchain system architecture. They are the ones that create the protocol, design the consensus protocol and come out with the policies etc. 

2. With that in mind, the blockchain’s software developers write applications that use the original blockchain’s architecture along with the protocols that are put in place. Whether their work is focused on creating user-facing functionality, such as smart contracts or dApps, which use the blockchain infrastructure, their role becomes EQUALLY vital.


The blockchain developer has become a highly sought-after professional, as businesses from various industries worldwide are beginning to see the potential of blockchain technology. The blockchain technology market size is projected to grow significantly, with some forecasts predicting it to reach over $60 billion by 2024, up from $3 billion in 2020! From finance and healthcare to supply chain management and beyond, companies are willing to pay eagerly for the talents of skilled professionals who can build blockchain technology that will enable them to increase efficiency, security, and innovation.

Blockchain developer roles are among the highest-paying in the tech industry. Salaries can vary widely depending on location, experience, and the specific blockchain technologies mastered, but in the US, blockchain developers can earn between $150,000 to $175,000 annually on average, which is significantly higher than the average salaries for other developer roles.

Data may vary, but a constant trend of job postings and industry reports suggests that blockchain developers have one of the fastest-growing job sectors. This is not a rise just because of the crypto bubble, but instead the result of a blockchain technology scalability that creates an efficient and secure environment.

Blockchain developers are at the centre of creating solutions that may change industry structure and outrun customer expectations. They are not only improving transactional efficiency and security but also creating new business models. As an example, these people develop systems that provide real-time, intelligent, and tamper-proof tracking of goods from origin to consumer which will eventually CHANGE the way global trade works.

Moreover, in the case of finance, blockchain innovations such as the decentralised finance (DeFi) platforms are putting pressure on the way traditional banking and investments work, offering more available and transparent financial services. Thanks to their knowledge and creativity, blockchain developers are not only members of the technology industry but are the main actors of a digital revolution that could ALTER our human existence.


The challenge of becoming a blockchain developer is full of new ideas and possibilities. The path is not a straight one and is a combination of basic education, self-taught learning, and practical experience.You can start with a basic knowledge of computer science and/or IT coupled with specialised courses in blockchain technology [e.g. Coursera, Udemy, and edX] available online. Such courses deal with crucial subjects such as cryptocurrencies, smart contracts, and the development of decentralised applications (dApps). Certifications can also validate one’s skills and knowledge making them more appealing to employers.

Practical experience is crucial. Participation in real-world projects, involvement in blockchain projects, or a work placement in a blockchain firm may give you relevant experience.

It’s also absolutely important to NETWORK within the blockchain community through the means of conferences, workshops, and online forums like Reddit, and Stack Exchange to learn, discover the latest opportunities, and be tuned in with the most current trends and technologies in the Blockchain sector. The transformation of a blockchain developer requires a continuous learning process, as the technology is changing rapidly. 

By constantly staying curious, maintaining connections, and committing to learning new concepts and techniques, anyone can become a well-known blockchain developer and contribute to the technological revolution of the future.



The journey to enter the blockchain field will be a struggle, so you’ll need constant support from those already experienced in the field. That’s why the UTE conference in Cebu, Philippines, is where you need to be. This isn’t just any old event; it’s your shortcut to get an exclusive look into Blockchain.
