Blockchain is a system that keeps record of transactions made in cryptocurrency across several computers.
With the advent of distributed computing in the early 2000s, and with the increased desire for virtual currency alternatives in a medium for exchange, the use of containers to implement and deploy said software has increased in popularity.
Additionally, container programming has become so important to large deployment software and container programming is so new in the software world, that there is a shortage of container programmers. This has led to containers programmer being highly sought after, and to uncharacteristically large salaries being paid to container programmers.
