Forbes Named the Richest Owners of Cryptocurrency in the World

The American magazine Forbes presented the rating of the richest owners of cryptocurrency, emphasizing that this is an approximate estimate of the capital. The rating includes Vitalik Buterin and Valery Vavilov.

The first position of the list was occupied by the co-founder of the Ripple platform Chris Larsen with an estimated capital of $7.5-8 billion. Forbes points out that due to the growth of XPR in January, Larsen was able to take the 15th place in the rating of America’s richest people.

The second place was given to the head of the blockchain company Consensys and the co-founder of Ethereum Joseph Lubin with a capital of $1-5 billion. The top three is concluded by the executive director of the crypto exchange Binance Changpeng Zhao with a capital of $1.1-2 billion.

The rating included well-known “first bitcoin billionaires” brothers Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss. Their joint capital is estimated at $0.9-1.1 billion.

The list also includes a native of Latvia, Valery Vavilov, who is the co-founder of the BitFury blockchain start-up. According to Forbes, Vavilov owns $500-700 million. Ethereum creator Vitalik Buterin owns cryptocurrency in the amount of $400-500 million.

Forbes counted the capital of the participants of the rating based on the data on their stocks of digital currency, profit after taxation and share in crypto projects. The authors of the list emphasize that there is a high probability that not all cryptillionaires have entered it. All calculations were made as of January the 19th, 2018.

Organizers Used Fake Lamborghinis to Attract Attention to the Consensus 2018

Organizers of the conference Consensus 2018 in New York held a kind of promo-action by parking a “Lamborghini” in front of the entrance to the building, where the event was held. The vehicle was provided by the company Broadway Supercars from New Jersey. This has been reported by the CNBC channel.

The point of this was to pass the cars off as the transport of Bitcoin and cryptocurrency investors. As a result of an independent investigation it also became known that the last two Lamborghini vehicles belong to the owner of the renting company, John Nouri.

“We do a lot of this for a lot of companies all the time. It’s an attention grabber. It’s for the people walking in. They all say once you make money in crypto, you buy a lambo. I never made money with crypto but I have ten lambos.” – Nouri said.

The edition notes that the rental price of one vehicle of the company Broadway Supercars is $1000 per day, while its total cost is from $200 thousand and more.

“I see a parallel between young people that are really willing to become very rich with the very high-risk investment, and … the fact that our customers are very young,” Lamborghini CEO Stefano Domenicali told CNBC in a recent interview.

Let us remind you that on Monday, the 14th of May, the Consensus 2018 blockchain conference started in New York. This event is currently the largest in the world. It is devoted to Bitcoin, other cryptocurrencies and blockchain technologies.
