The Cointelegraph Top 100

Welcome to the Cointelegraph Top 100 Notable People in Blockchain in 2021, selected by the editorial team at the world’s best-read crypto media outlet.

Our list this year has been determined by the choices that influenced our industry in 2020. While we may not agree with these choices, or endorse those who made them, these are the people who made a difference to the crypto industry in 2020 — and who will guide the direction of the sector in 2021.

Any Top 100 list will be defined as much by those who don’t appear, as by those who do. But whether your favorite futurists are included this year or not, we hope it provides a thought-provoking snapshot of the most notable people in crypto at the dawn of the age of mass adoption.

Highlights for 2021:
  • 75 new entrants demonstrate the fast pace of the blockchain industry
  • Only five of last year’s Top Ten, and ten of last year’s Top Twenty make the 2021 list
  • 24% of our Top 50 in blockchain are women, up from 10% in 2020
