Cryptocurrency has absolutely blown up in recent years, to the point now that there are plenty of top influencers to follow to find out which coins or tokens are worth investing in.
Beyond just Bitcoin and Ethereum, or meme coins like Doge, crypto enthusiasts are always looking for a coin or token that they can see flying up. This has even expanded to Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs), with collectors buying digital artwork for increasingly insane prices.
But who are the people helping drive crypto fans to new coins, assessing the numbers like a Wall Street stock market trader and finding the best places to invest?
Twitter has a huge crypto userbase, and this report highlights the top crypto influencers on Twitter.

One caveat is that Crowdsense opted to exclude the likes of Elon Musk and Mark Cuban in this list, as where their crypto influence starts and ends are “hard to understand.”
There are countless other celebrities and online influencers that regularly dabble in cryptocurrency, as evidenced by the Save the Kids scandal involving several FaZe Clan members, but this list highlights those who focus solely on the crypto space.
