The CryptoLab research portal has published a list of the most influential people in the cryptographic industry. It included 80 people who made a significant contribution to the development of the industry.
According to assessment compilers, to identify and compile a list of influencing factors, we used our own "algorithm using over 19 parameters". However, specific parameters were not named.
The top ten list includes:
- creator of Ethereum Vitalik Buterin
- Litecoin cryptocurrency creator Charlie Lee
- entrepreneur and preacher of cryptophilosophy Andreas Antonopoulos
- creator of the Telegram messenger and VKontakte social network Pavel Durov
- founder of the TRON Justin Sun cryptocurrency project
- Andreessen Horowitz co-founder and general partner Mark Andrissen
- founder of Bitcoin.com and blockchain.info Roger Ver
- Cryptographer and creator of Bit Gold Nick Szabo
- ShapeShift CEO and founder Eric Voorhees
- The founder of Grayscale Investments and Digital Currency Group Barry Silbert
In addition to the aforementioned Buterin and Durow, five more Russians were on the CryptoLab list:
- CEO and founder of Waves Alexander Ivanov (56)
- CEO and co-founder of MobileGo Sergey Sholom (74)
- creator of KICK Ecosystem Anti Danilevsky (76)
- RadiusGroup CEO Dmitry Marinichev (77)
- Leading cryptocurrency analyst EXMO Pavel Lerner (78)
It is noteworthy that the list also indicates the number of subscribers of each person on Twitter, as well as the total capitalization of their projects. So the capitalization of Vitalik Buterin's projects is USD 32.5 billion, and Charlie Lee – USD 7.4 billion.
Let us remind you that in July 2018 Vitalik Buterin entered the cryptocurrency version of the ranking of influential young businessmen from Fortune magazine – 40 under 40 years old. Then the founder of Ethereum took the second line of the list, losing only to the president of the US stock exchange Coinbase Brian Armstrong.
