NFT as one of the most popular industries in the crypto industry, a large number of jobs also follow.
The NFT market is now worth more than $22 billion. All this is more than simple art. Axie infinity alone saw its market value soar from $30 million in 2020 to a peak of $10 billion in 2021.
This was just the first successful attempt at an NFT game,
We will see even greater success with NFT games in the future.
The following are the jobs created by NFT:

Ethereum remains the platform of choice for NFT. More than 90% of NFT trading is in Ethereum.
Therefore, NFT needs Solidity developers, the programming language used for Ethereum and other EVM (Ethereum Virtual Machine) type blockchain systems, to deploy their contracts.
Solidity is one of the most in-demand and best-paying jobs for 2022
We expect it to create the same number of jobs through 2023, if not more. Skilled developers are very important in project deployment. Once a project runs a smart contract, it risks being breached by hackers.
Therefore, the company will pay a reasonable fee for experienced smart contract developers.

There is a lot of hype in the NFT space, and marketing is a core component of the NFT project.
As with any other industry, you need to have a good understanding of NFT if you want to work in NFT marketing.
Some of these responsibilities include organizing and hosting the Twitter space, working with other NFT projects, managing whitelists, and more.

The community manager is another core component of the NFT.
Most people see NFT as art. However, the communities built around art are stronger than art itself.
NFT understands that having a good community is critical to building a brand and invests heavily in it.
Community manager jobs have also become very popular.

Most NFT projects require something unique and irreplaceable.
That's where artists come in.
"Art" is a bit of a broad term. For most of the past, we've only seen graphic art. But that is slowly changing. We are seeing more and more projects with other innovative products, such as sound, music, or even fully programmed generative art.
Any artwork that can be digitized can be turned into an NFT and sold.
As a result, there will be a constant need for good artists for NFT projects.

Web3 presents a unique set of challenges that require more UI/UX designers in their field.
San Diego recently hired a Web3 designer for Icy Tools, a popular NFT analytics platform.
"There's a lot of information to digest when it comes to blockchain, especially when it comes to building consumer friend apps. Having a designer can help simplify this information and make it easy to understand and intuitive, which is a big need.
Designers with "web3" experience are in high demand right now, and with good reason. They iterate faster than non-crypto native designers and provide more insight into the product in terms of how to make it better."

Another new area in the NFT industry is game development.
As the project sought to move beyond the normal PFP (profile picture) type of NFT, the first path to expansion was into Gamefi(blockchain gaming). Axie Infinity is more of a Gamefi forerunner, and there will be more of these NFT titles in 2023, with traditional game companies like Ubisoft also looking to enter the NFT.
NFT can be difficult to understand, even daunting, at first. If you are new to the industry, take the time to learn about it.
