Justin Sun, 2,684,568 Followers

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 account. This could suggest a keen younger demographic that wants to become more informed through the convenience of bitesize videos.
