Digital currencies is really hot right now with more and more people looking for jobs in the crypto industry. In a recent study by the researchers at Coin Journal, they found that New York is home to many crypto job opportunities.

According to the data, the Empire State is ranked as the fifth state in the United States with the highest number of crypto jobs. I'm not really surprised because New York is known as a major financial hub.

New York City is home to the New York Stock Exchange, one of the largest stock exchanges in the world, and now it is seeing growth in the crypto industry too. The data also found that New York has a high per capita rate of people working in the crypto industry.

That is another great sign of the state's growing presence in cryptocurrency. New York is bringing talent and jobs to the crypto industry at a faster rate than other states. More companies are using digital currencies and blockchain technology into their day to day operations.

That is great news for New York as more people will be needed to work in the crypto industry. The more people that are needed, the more available jobs in New York.
