Well, I’ve taken Ivan’s other course, am enrolled in the U. of Nicosia MS in Digital Currency course, stay up-to-date on as much as I can (through Twitter/Youtube/Cryptopanic/local meetups/etc), and go to Blockchain conferences and network with people I know in the space. I also just started my own LLC in order to provide more and better consulting services.
I think it’s hard to get started and most companies don’t know what to look for so you’ve really got to put yourself out there or make something happen for yourself. I see you’ve been active in this forum so that’s a good start. Living in/near a blockchain hotspot wouldn’t hurt either (Boston/NY/SanFran).
