Forbes 30 Under 30 list features 15 crypto leaders

3 min reading

Forbes has listed OpenSea co-founder Alex Atallah and Alamada Research co-CEOs Caroline Ellison and Sam Trabucco in its recent 30 under 30 list, which includes 15 crypto business leaders.

Forbes has listed 15 enthusiastic crypto business leaders to its 30 under 30 list for 2022.

Although its deceptive name, the annual Forbes 30 under 30 list is composed of 600 persons aged 30 and under from a range of fields, including finance, gaming, and music. FTX and Alameda Research founder Sam Bankman-Fried, and Brian Tubergen, co-founder of U.S.-based initial token sale and exchange platform CoinList, are some of the notable alumni from last year's edition.

Forbes reported in its December 1 edition that the most recent group of under the 30s raised more than $1 billion in total. The list includes Alamada Research co-CEOs Caroline Ellison and Sam Trabucco, OpenSea co-founder Alex Atallah, and PleasrDAO founder Emily Yang, among others.

Finance had the most crypto leaders (11) with names like Clinton Bembry, founder of decentralised finance (DeFi) based trading platform Slingshot, Tegan Kline, founder of blockchain data indexing protocol Edge & Node, and Roneil Rumburg, co-founder of blockchain-based streaming service Audius making the list.

Apart from finance, PleasrDao's Yang was recognised in the art category for her work in obtaining significant NFT collections, such as Edward Snowden's first drop in April for 2,224 Ether (ETH) ($10.1 million at current prices). Michael Ippolito and Jason Yanowitz, co-founders of Blockworks, were also considered in the media category for their work in crypto journalism.

This year's crypto contingent represents a 50% increase over the previous edition's 10 young crypto leaders and indicates a rising trend of crypto adoption in mainstream media.

This may be attributed in part to the increasing number of crypto entrepreneurs who have reached the list of the world's wealthy people in the last year.

Seven crypto founders made the Australian Financial Review's annual list of the wealthiest entrepreneurs aged 40 and under last month. Forbes' wealthiest billionaires list for 2021 included 13 crypto leaders, a threefold increase over the previous year.
