What are some thoughts/ advice on pivoting to different industries (such as to AI or Cybersecurity) as an established engineer? eg, I have 4 YOE in the blockchain/web3 space, as a protocol engineer (smart contract/ full-stack web development). Pay was great for entry-mid but there’s been a decline in roles during the crypto bear market (I was laid off and have been freelancing). I can see myself achieving senior if I ride this out, but I want to keep myself open to other stable opportunities.

You're an established engineer in blockchain, but I wouldn't use 4 years experience as a reason to not go excel in another sector, especially in a bear market. You could also become a senior in another sector. If you're bright enough learn blockchain you're bright enough to transition to another sector and crush there too.
