The diffusion of blockchain technology has brought about considerable changes to the European labour market. Blockchain is an advanced emerging technology, with marked variety in application and implementation. Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLTs) have been demonstrably implemented in banking, finance, ICT, education, healthcare, supply chain management and many other sectors. As adoption of blockchain technology continues to spread, the skill requirements for blockchain-related employment evolve, which has implications for blockchain education and training programmes and European skills policy. This report provides forecasting estimates for blockchain skills demand and supply in Europe between 2021 and 2026, highlighting key areas within the EU-27 where labour supply and demand asymmetries may arise. This report primarily serves as a tool to guide European policymakers in targeting digital skills programmes as they pertain to mitigating labour market asymmetries in blockchain skills.
