Ran Neuner is a major figure in the cryptocurrency industry and is a vocal participant of Crypto Twitter. He is co-founder and CEO of Onchain Capital, a crypto investment fund and consulting service, and is widely known as the host of “Crypto Trader,” the world’s first crypto TV show, which was launched on CNBC in 2017. Neuner is a chartered financial analyst, and he recently completed an executive leadership program at Harvard Business School. His significant contributions to the blockchain industry earned him a spot on Richtopia’s list of the top 100 most influential people in blockchain.
In 2020, Neuner was actively involved in crypto media, focused on new content models. In November, Neuner launched “Crypto Banter,” the world’s first livestreaming platform dedicated to cryptocurrency and blockchain. According to its creator, Crypto Banter is designed to bring the banter from Crypto Twitter and Telegram to a credible, moderated audio/visual source.
Neuner was also responsive to industry issues triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic. In late March, Neuner launched a $10 million emergency fund to help companies struggling with the economic impact of the pandemic. Neuner’s Runway Fund subsequently announced a partnership with major content marketing agency MarketAcross to provide public relations and marketing services for those affected.
Neuner plans to build his Crypto Banter platform, which aims to be the world’s first crypto-focused streaming platform available 24 hours per day, 365 days per year. As cryptocurrency adoption continues to grow and mature with new industry entrants like PayPal, there will certainly be more demand for Neuner’s crypto and blockchain expertise in 2021.
