As a result, we are faced with a huge shortage of specialists who are now in demand both in state and private commercial structures of Russia. Projects are created, but there is no one to implement them. And the few who really understand the prospects of blockchain technology in Russia are now creating a highly paid and promising career in IT,” Alexander Stepanov emphasized at the end of the lecture.
