On Tuesday morning, we announced The Information’s inaugural Crypto Power List. We spoke to dozens of our closest contacts in the sector and put together our view of the 10 founders, 10 investors and 10 up-and-comers with the most power in the industry.
Some of the names you may recognize. The heads of the major crypto exchanges—Coinbase, Binance and FTX—were all represented on our list of top founders. In fact, Coinbase garnered a little extra representation, with founder Fred Ehrsam and Chief Operating Officer Emilie Choi both landing spots on our top investors list, given the portfolios they lead at Paradigm and Coinbase Ventures, respectively.
