Cryptocurrencies have been around for the past decade but have only recently become a trending topic. What is cryptocurrency you may ask? It is an anonymous digital asset used as a way to pay for goods and services, as well as for trading for other cryptocurrencies on the crypto exchanges.
Cryptocurrency is quite an advanced technological concept, but is fitting for our modern age of technology. There are various brilliant minds behind this industry, many of which became multi millionaires.
Take Joseph Lubin for example, he is the Co-founder of Ethereum which is one of the leading cryptocurrencies in the market to date. He also founded Consensys which serves as a “venture production studio” for the Ethereum ecosystem and has 600 employees under its name. Lubin’s Crypto Net Worth is a massive $1-$5 Billion putting him in second place to Chris Larsen, the top Crypto King. Larsen’s Crypto Net Worth of $8 Billion is contributed to the founding of Ripple, another top leading Cryptocurrency worldwide.
