Forbes magazine recently published the list of the richest people in the world. That list includes over 2000 billionaires, but only four of them belong to the cryptocurrency sector. Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao does not appear on the list despite being known as the third richest person in the cryptocurrency industry in 2018.
Who are the crypto billionaires
There are more than 2000 billionaires on Forbes' "The Richest in 2020" list, but there were only four people on the list who belonged to the cryptocurrency industry. Micree Zhan, Jihan Wu, Chris Larsen and Brian Armstrong were among the 2095 billionaires from various industries named on the Forbes list published on April 8.
Bitmain co-founder Micree Zhan has a net worth of $ 3,2 billion and is the richest crypto billionaire on the list, taking n. 690. Another Bitmain co-founder, Jihan Wu, is not far behind Zhan on the list.
Jihan Wu appeared in position no. 1307, with a net worth of $ 1,8 billion. Former Ripple CEO Chris Larsen also appears on the list at post no. 886, with a net worth of $ 2,6 billion.
The fourth person on the list is Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong. He was classified in place no. 2087, with one billion dollars of net worth. Binance's CEO Changpeng Zhao was not on the list.
Who has remained off the list
Binance's CEO, Changpeng Zhao, is among the wealthiest people in the cryptocurrency industry, with an estimated net worth of around a billion dollars. Despite being the CEO of one of the leading cryptocurrency exchanges in the world, he has failed to appear on the Forbes list of the richest in 2020.
The founders of Gemini Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss also do not appear on the list. Their net worth is estimated at $ 1,8 billion. In this list of Forbes, many billionaires of traditional finance appear, including Bitcoin opponent Warren Buffett, whose net worth is estimated at 75,4 billion dollars. Eric Yuan, CEO of Zoom, is also on the list.
The newcomer to the world of billionaires has an estimated net worth of $ 5,5 billion.
Better bananas than Bitcoin
Tech companies that have invested in crypto and blockchain activities have seen major investments from millionaires and billionaires in recent years, but some Investors who made their fortune with more established and traditional means - like Buffett - are reluctant to accept cryptocurrencies in their business. Mark Cuban, with $ 4,6 billion, said he would prefer "to have bananas" rather than Bitcoin.
In short, many would certainly like to have Bitcoin rather than a basket of bananas, but these are things that only a billionaire can think of! And what do you prefer? Let us know in the comments below!
