It’s been a wild 12 months for crypto and the world of DeFi. From Super Bowl halftime ads and celebrity endorsements to the rise of central bank digital currencies (CBDCs) and the “crypto crash” — everyone seems to be talking about crypto.

With so many people cashing in their two cents, whose voice is cutting through the noise?

Finder set out to learn about people not only talking most about crypto-related topics but also addressing the biggest audiences.

Our list of the 29 most influential journalists in the crypto space celebrates those who have helped us unpack the impact of blockchain technology on our lives.

Finder commissioned the artist Julie Garrington to create a collection of NFTs that honor each of our NFT and cryptocurrency influencers.
