BlackRock seeks VP blockchain lead to drive firm’s crypto offerings. BlackRock, the world’s largest asset manager, is looking to appoint a vice president to help develop and introduce strategies and “drive demand” for the crypto and crypto-related products of the firm.
BlackRock, which has $6.84 trillion assets under management, has posted a job vacancy for a New York-based VP of blockchain to help with the valuation of crypto assets.
The applicant must have at least one year of experience in blockchain technology’s technical foundations, including cryptographic hash functions, distributed network consensus mechanisms, and public-private key cryptography, according to the article.
The listing mentioned that candidates should be able to “devise and articulate fundamental valuation methodologies for crypto-assets; evaluate game theory and decentralizing governance models associated with blockchain technology,” BlackRock CEO Larry Fink recently made some bullish comments on bitcoin (BTC, -5.71%), stating it has “caught the attention” of many people and that the nascent cryptocurrency asset class can possibly “evolve” into a global market asset.
