The countdown for Cointelegraph’s list of the most influential figures in crypto and blockchain is coming to a close, saving the best for last. The Top 10 are out, and a surprise contender takes the special spot at #0.
The past year has been rough, and heading into the final days of February, it’s not getting any better. Countless difficulties — including the pandemic, inflation, riots and protests, and military conflict — have raised fears to an all-time high while sending the markets and prices low. But hope is not lost. Bitcoin () bounced back, hodlers keep hodling and humankind will overcome the many challenges of today. This is why the message sitting at the special #0 spot on the Top 100 list is: We’re all gonna make it!
With bigshots like Tesla CEO Elon Musk, Salvadoran President Nayib Bukele and Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin taking their respective spots within the list, many may wonder: Who stands above them all? The answer is the belief and hope that everything will be better.
As always, many may disagree with the list, but Cointelegraph created it to keep track of all the characters that made their mark in 2021 and will continue their contributions in crypto and blockchain in 2022.
Those who contribute to the growth of the blockchain industry are scattered across the globe, and even more people will continue to be drawn in during the years to come. Because of this, the Cointelegraph team will always be here to bring you the latest developments in blockchain and crypto. Thank you for making us your go-to source for crypto news, and enjoy the final release of this year’s.
