More cryptocurrency entrepreneurs making Forbes “30 Under 30”
The Forbes annual “30 Under 30” list, which recognizes the achievements of young industry leaders, was recently released, with multiple cryptocurrency entrepreneurs making the cut.
Olaoluwa Osuntokun, Hunter Horsley, Nader Al-Naji, and JB Rubinovitz whose ages range from 25 to 28 have all been mentioned in relation to their work with cryptocurrencies.
While Al-Naji, the CEO of Intangible Labs, is listed due to his efforts of raising $133 million for his company, others such as Rubinovitz are mentioned for new developments in their field.
Rubinovitz is the creator of Bail Bloc, a mining program that utilizes a small portion of a computer’s power to mine monero in order to donate it to The Bronx Freedom Fund, a nonprofit intended to provide bail for those who can’t afford it.
Horsley, CEO of Bitwise, is mentioned for building cryptocurrency indices that rely on transparent criteria. Bitwise is currently being used by 40 hedge funds across the industry.
Other notable names who’ve made the list include Vitalik Buterin, the creator of Ethereum, as well as Olaf Carlson-Wee, founder of cryptocurrency hedge fund Polychain Capital. As cryptocurrency, mining, and blockchain continue to gain popularity, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see more crypto-focused entrepreneurs make next year’s Forbes list.
