Bloomberg created a list of the 50 most influential people of the year, and this time the creator of the etherium Vitalik Buterin was included in the top. This list contains the names of people who promote certain areas of activity forward or have made a breakthrough in them. In the neighborhood with Buterin, the founder and head of Amazon Jeff Bezos, the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia Mohammed ibn Salman, as well as the head of Tesla and SpaceX, the billionaire Ilon Mask, are located in the top.
Inclusion Buterina in this list was not a surprise. The crypto-currency market is growing at an explosive rate, bringing bitcoin and etherium out of the shadow into the mainstream area.
In his 23 years, technical prodigy Buterin has created a huge resonance in the entire financial industry, thus creating a lot of start-ups and computer programs around the world. The platform created by Buterin is especially attractive for crowd-drawing projects and projects for attracting finance. According to Bloomberg:
“The potential of the etherium in the field of computer money transfer has made a real revolution, attracting more attention from Wall Street. Now this project changes the approach to financing companies: the ether is a popular means for the initial offering of coins, or ICO, which allows to avoid traditional ways of using venture capital or IPO (and at the moment and circulation of securities). All this allowed the block-start-ups to grow this year above the $ 3 billion mark. “
