The 20 Most Influential Blockchain and Crypto Experts

Want to learn about cryptocurrency and blockchain? These are the 20 people you must follow and learn from!

There are lots of blockchain and crypto experts, marketers, influencers, advisors and practitioners, but this list is made up of those blockchain and crypto experts (must be both), who have expertise and capabilities that run across many of these areas and are known practitioners and/or market-makers. There were many that we could have had on this list, but marketers, advisors, and influencers, etc… whose primary function is to market or promote have been excluded.

This list will now be monitored, adjusted, and displayed in MatriX on’s new Crypto research product offerings. Earlier, we unveiled methods to research and analyze cryptocurrency exchanges that will also be part of the crypto offering. This list will be tracked and adjusted by AI to measure the social and development impact of each person, plus many more who are climbing but not yet on the list.
