Are you a blockchain-savvy young engineer dreaming of working at the happiest place on Earth?

If so, we might have an interesting offer for you. The Walt Disney Company (NYSE:DIS) has published a wanted ad for a “Disney Private Blockchain Intern,” but unfortunately the job is in Seattle, Washington not Disneyland.

We have recently seen more and more established companies jumping on the blockchain bandwagon. Claiming they would be the first to implement the technology derived from bitcoin into fields as diverse as mortgages, wines and more, it’s hard to tell if many are really in need of blockchain solutions or just caught up in the hype. This doesn’t seem to be the case with Disney as it tried to keep the fact that it is working on it rather low key.
