The online edition of the Economist presented the four most influential people in the world of cryptocurrencies. They all have cryptocurrency trading platforms.
Among them is 29-year-old Sam Bankman-Fried, director of cryptocurrency trading company FTX. His fortune is estimated at more than $ 22 billion.
He and other influential people call him a child prodigy in the market whose value is 12 times higher. From the beginning of last year to the middle of December this year, it increased to 2.3 billion dollars.
At the head of the largest cryptocurrency exchange Binance is 44-year-old Changpeng Zhao, who is called CZ. He is the oldest of the four most influential people in the cryptocurrency market.
He became the leader in this financial activity three years ago, until Arthur Hayes, co-founder of the cryptocurrency trading platform BitMEX. This platform was one of the most popular and risky.
At the head of the Coinbase platform is the introverted and unwavering Brian Armstrong. This is one cryptocurrency exchange that has been listed and regulated in the United States for a long time.
Previously prominent people have billions of dollars in wealth and great influence. They succeeded in that in just a few years, writes the Economist.
