Have a SWE background and am considering either a ML or Blockchain career. Wondering which has a more interesting future with more opportunities. Which would you pick?

      Trade it for what? Using crypto as an exchange for fiat currency is such a huge waste of the technology. ;(

    Fuck a blockchain.. It’s technology that could’ve existed in 70’s but we didn’t need it. Still don’t need it, but mass media keeps the echo alive because of the thrill from its speculative trading. ML still has some corners to be explored that could have decent impact and economic value.

    What the f is a blockchain career? You seriously comparing a field of science with hundreds of subdomain that is involved in almost every aspect of our daily life with blockchain?!?

    Quantum computing is still an unknown amount of time from being viable, but there’s already concrete evidence to suggest it’s possible.

    When (not if) it becomes viable for even one person, blockchain as we know it becomes irrelevant but ML becomes immediately more powerful.

    The escape hatch is that only blockchain “as we know it” would be broken by QC. It’s possible blockchain evolves at some point. So if you can advance far enough along in a “blockchain career” to dramatically advance the field, then go for it.

    But ML is a much safer bet.
