With a combined social media following of more than 1.6 million, Cathie Wood, CEO of investment management firm Ark Invest, ranked fifth. Wood has been named one of 50 people shaping global business by Bloomberg.

Despite his fraud convictions, Sam Bankman-Fried (1,066,300), ranked in tenth.

Meanwhile, Tyler Winklevoss (1,058,000) and his twin brother, Cameron (767,800) also ranked in the top 15. The brothers are known for co-founding HarvardConnection - later renamed ConnectU - along with Harvard classmate Divya Narendra. In 2004, the brothers sued Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg, after he allegedly he stole their ConnectU idea to create the popular networking site.

David Kemmerer, Co-Founder and CEO of CoinLedger, commented on the findings: "This data offers a fascinating insight into the people within the crypto sphere who hold the most influence, and many of the names that feature in this study helped to popularize the cryptocurrency industry. Without their influence, hundreds of millions of people who now invest in cryptocurrencies wouldn't have been afforded the opportunity to do so."

CoinLedger conducted the research.

Methodology: After compiling a list of the 30 most influential people in cryptocurrency in 2023 (according to CryptoWeekly), the study combined their respective social media followings to determine which personality is the most popular worldwide.
