I’m located in Canada. Hydroelectricity rates are relatively low here and naturally colder temperatures are better for the mining hardware.
I’m a CPA by profession and worked for a Big 4 accounting firm previously. At the time, there was very limited knowledge in the blockchain space within the firm, so I had a unique opportunity to work directly with the more “forward-thinking” Partners who would try to approach blockchain-related clients. I was able to understand how blockchain/crypto worked for a specific business and explain it in layman terms to the Partner(s).
Attending and speaking at conferences and events built up my network and I eventually met the Controller of the company I currently work for. I didn’t know it then, but about 6 months later, they were looking to fill a Manager of FP&A (Financial Planning & Analysis) role and he thought of me. My title ended up being Assistant Controller as I also work on our monthly/annual reporting as well (my core responsibilities are FP&A/Strategy-related though).
So my CV was basically adapted to focus on blockchain-related “accolades” (leading the firm’s first blockchain client engagement, receiving the innovation award within the firm for my blockchain research/ideas, being a guest lecturer at a university for an introduction to blockchain in business, etc.)
Because I had met the Controller already, and he approached me, I think I had a leg up. That being said, I think catering your CV/Cover letter to talk about your passion/knowledge/experience in the blockchain space is important, but doesn’t have to be the entirety of your application. Your fit in the prospective company and what you bring to the table is by far the most important.
