What certifications do you have or are you seeking to get?
Good question. In the same way you can be a software engineer without a certificate, you can definitely contribute to blockchain development without being a cryptography expert.
I try to read as many books as possible on the topic and I took some courses especially about cyber-security in general and I think that's sufficient to get started and produce good results.
I do have 7 years of experience as a software developer so that helps a lot obviously. Generally speaking, solid understanding of distributed systems is a big plus.
If you want to of course develop a protocol completely from scratch a PhD in mathematics is super important.
Thank's for this ama !
Do you have books to advise ?
, there are few on Amazon but I didn't really have time myself. I would advise to first try the ecosystem and the books will naturally come to you based on your goals. Subscribe to my GophersLand newsletter I am planning to do these kinds of recommendations and tips as well. Thx for your interest!
