Three years ago, Hike Messenger had launched India’s first messenger based UPI-enabled digital wallet – Hike Wallet – months ahead of the proposed launch of the digital wallet of rival WhatsApp in India. Hike App constantly receives new updates on both Android and iOS platforms. The company has recently added features like HikeMoji, Hike Web, Auto Backup and much more.
Hike Messenger is now gearing up to launch a new feature called Hike Land soon. Hike has not yet unveiled much about the upcoming feature. However, the company has generated a new URL – hike.land where users can register themselves. The aim of the company is to take Hike Sticker Chat into a new era using technology to build an upgraded user experience around the HikeMoji. The HikeMoji will be able to do multiple things withing HikeLand. That will be the ecosystem around which Hike will build a virtual economy business model. In an interview with Business Insider, Mittal shared that since payments have not become seamless, microtransactions are going to emerge in a big way and the virtual economy is the golden goose that no-one has tapped into in India.
As people are seeking the help of the internet in the lookout for jobs pertaining to the blockchain sector, this has become evident through the 300% hike in cryptocurrency job searches over the last year. Blockchain will be the most in-demand hard skill in 2020, according to a new study by the educational subsidiary of the professional social network LinkedIn. It emphasized that a number of high-profile global firms such as IBM, Oracle, JPMorgan, Amazon as well as LinkedIn’s parent firm Microsoft have been actively implementing the technology.

As, Sashi Kumar, the Managing Director of Indeed India, on the other hand, described the situation to be highly promising and filled with new opportunities and scope to showcase one’s true potential. However, Sashi agreed to the fact that the cryptocurrency jobs market was still in its nascent stage but is hopeful that within 2022. The global market for products and services related to the blockchain will reach the $7.7 billion mark by 2022.
The crypto job demand is rising in India, and financial authorities and institutions have already targeted the crypto exchanges in India under suspicion of them participating in dubious transactions. We hope for a better future for the adoption of crypto in India.
