MicroStrategy is shifting to assemble a blockchain analytics staff. It could be the primary bitcoin-related software program product from an organization greatest recognized for CEO Michael Saylor’s whopping bet on BTC as a reserve asset.
The agency, primarily based in Tysons Corner, Va., put out calls on LinkedIn Friday for a Blockchain Data Analyst and Blockchain Data Engineer, explaining in job postings they are going to be a part of a staff “building an analytics platform with advanced metrics and insights for Bitcoin.”
MicroStrategy hinted last November its curiosity in constructing blockchain data products and even acknowledged its intention to hire for them. Executives didn’t go public then with positions of interest and remained largely mum on program specifics, describing it as a potential data offering at the time.
However Saylor has been vocal about perceived deficiencies in bitcoin’s data. He declared last October that “garbage” market data was holding bitcoin back. “Where can you find something so incredibly compelling that has such bad data around it relative to other assets?” Saylor stated on the time.
For a person who spent a lot of last week all but pleading his fellow CEOs to undertake the bitcoin standard, there’s an apparent, and vested, interest in improving upon the “garbage.”
MicroStrategy didn’t reply to a request for remark by press time.
The dual hirings add a tough image to what’s may ultimately turn into a commercialized intelligence offering for digital assets beyond just bitcoin. MicroStrategy wants analysts skilled with public, personal and permission blockchains (Bitcoin’s network is public and permissionless).
A product would additionally produce shareable, digestible analytical insights, the listings point out. MicroStrategy’s new engineer can be chargeable for growing software program able to turning troves of information into “visualizations” that may be shared with “broader audiences.”
