  1. Ben Armstrong (BitBoy Crypto), 3,918,000 followers

BitBoy Crypto was only set up three years ago as an informative YouTube channel teaching people about all things Bitcoin and cryptocurrency.

He achieved the number one spot in the rankings thanks to a presence across all social media platforms, particularly TikTok, and Youtube.

  1. Justin Sun, 2,684,568 followers

While controversial for his outspoken, brash style, Justin Sun, the founder of the crypto platform TRON, has a huge 2.5 million followers on Twitter alone, placing him as the second most influential person.

  1. Vitalik Buterin, 1,313,500 followers

Ethereum founder Vitalik Buterin began influencing others on the subject back in 2011 while only a teenager through his ‘Bitcoin Magazine’. He founded Ethereum in 2014 with Gavin Woods which is the second largest currency in the market.

TikTok Is The Most Popular Platform For Crypto

Tiktok is where the most people are going for crypto advice as BitBoy Crypto/Ben Armstrong has 2.6 million followers on the app - the most of any single platform. This could suggest a keen younger demographic that wants to become more informed through the convenience of bitesize videos. Yet, only three of the top 10 cryptofluencers use this platform as Twitter emerges as the most popular platform for the subject.
