The world of cryptocurrency and blockchain has gotten very exciting over the last few months. Bitcoin and Ethereum hit new all time highs, and lesser known cryptocurrencies like Ripple and Litecoin are also doing very well. New millionaires are being made daily from cryptocurrency and blockchain related investments.

Cryptocurrency is just one area of the broader category of blockchain. Ethereum is the most exciting of all to me because of the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance were now 100s of the world’s largest corporations are onboard to utilize the Ethereum platform for its actual function. This is what takes blockchain and Ethereum to the next level.

Since the blockchain and cryptocurrency is difficult for most industry novices to understand, what better way to get information than following the top people in the industry!

The below list will surely not disappoint. The list is ordered alphabetically by first name, as I felt that everyone on this list is just so awesome it was too difficult to put an order.
