Blockchain technology, like a wildfire, has spread far and wide cutting across states, countries, sectors, social media platforms, political parties, industries, and a host of others. The technology which has been around for quite a while is yet to gain the amount of publication it deserves. This can be attributed to the fact people are yet to fully grasp what the ‘new’ technology is all about.
This fear has pushed many skeptics away from the crypto world and many others, especially the governments, are sitting on the face hoping to see how far the technology goes and how long it can survive before choosing sides. Playing safe, I would say.
However, a few others – bosses – have taken up the challenge of understanding this dreaded asset. These fearless men are now known as the bosses of the crypto world as they have a better understanding of the technology and have made for themselves their own cryptocurrencies to prove how deep their wells of knowledge of the ‘new’ technology runs.
Their contributions and commitment to the blockchain technology have earned them the reputation as the bosses that run the blocks. They are known as the voices of blockchain and command a large base of followers across different social media platforms. I guess that isn’t a shock as they have proved their loyalty to the cause and, of course, earned the trust of the citizens of the crypto sphere.
To place a name to the top shots in the crypto sphere, clovr conducted a poll of over 500 participants consisting of different generations (generation x and the millennial), genders (men and women), age groups (18 to 73), and political parties (republicans and democrats). The result of the poll showed that John McAfee, a die-hard Bitcoin activist and the wizard behind the popular computer’s antivirus software, hold number one spot among other bosses in the crypto sphere.
Following closely behind are other crypto bosses like Vitalik Buterin (a programmer and co-founder of Ethereum and Bitcoin Magazine), Charlie Lee (the creator of Litecoin and chairman of the Litecoin Foundation, cryptocurrency pundit), and a host of others. John McAfee won first place because he was able to maintain the first position in virtually all the sections of the poll conducted, while the occupants of the second, third, fourth, and fifth positions fluctuated with the different sections.
On the topic of the most go-to influencers for insights, updates, and prediction, John McAfee, Justin Wu, Vitalik Buterin, Charlie Lee, and Cameron Winklevoss occupied the first to fifth positions respectively. On the topic of the most followed blockchain influencers on social media, John McAfee, Vitalik Buterin, Marc Andreessen, Justin Sun, and Andreas Antonopoulos occupied the first to fifth positions respectively.
In the section of most followed blockchain influencers by political affiliation, the result showed that John McAfee, Vitalik Buterin, Cameron Winklevoss, Justin Wu, and Bobby Lee occupied first to fifth positions respectively under the Democrats poll while John McAfee, Charlie Lee, Justin Wu, Erik Voorhees, and Peter Todd occupied first to fifth positions under the Republicans poll.
On the basis of generation, the result showed that Millennial followed John McAfee, Justin Wu, and Charlie Lee while Generation X followed John McAfee, Vitalik Buterin, and Cameron Winklevoss.
On the basis of gender, the result showed Men followed John McAfee, Vitalik Buterin, Charlie Lee, Justin Wu, and Cameroon Winklevoss while Women followed Christine Lu, Justin Wu, Bobby Lee, Peter Todd, and John McAfee. This happened to be the only section that John McAfee didn’t make the first position.
