Crypto Influence Awards: The Top Names in Cryptocurrency

Crypto Influence
Jun 18, 2018 · 6 min read

One of the main reasons that BOOSTO held the Crypto Influence Summit in New York City was to help highlight and prop up the most authoritative, trustworthy, and credible names in the crypto and blockchain communities.

Despite the industry’s best efforts to legitimize itself and weed out any unsavory characters, there is still an abundance of social figures that don’t have the community’s best interest at heart. This has been seen time and again, most recently with the Bitconnect Ponzi scheme.

While there will always be a certain number of fraudsters in every industry, BOOSTO has taken it upon itself to help push some of the most dependable and ethically-sound influencers to the forefront of the social landscape so that veterans and newcomers know who to go to for authentic information.

The quest for trust and honesty is why we awarded crypto and blockchain influencers in various categories, on top of their epic work within the communities.

In an effort to continue spreading the word on the most truthful and responsible names in the crypto and blockchain world, here we will be providing a breakdown of the Crypto Influence Summit’s award categories, nominees, and winners.

Keep in mind that while most categories only had a single prizewinner, all the names listed here are individuals that you can depend on to provide the most reliable and accurate info available.

Without further ado!
