So far, 2022 has not been the best year for the $2 trillion crypto economy, yet great fortunes are being amassed behind the scenes. Given this industry’s obscurity and volatility, we are presenting our first-ever list of the top 100 richest people in cryptocurrency in net-worth estimates. We based our numbers on estimated holdings of cryptocurrencies (a few provided proof), recorded investments, wallet analytics, post-tax profits from trading crypto-assets, and stakes in blockchain-related businesses. It is almost certain that we have missed some people and some of our estimates might be off, but we are not that far off either.
