Feb. 21 lifts the curtains on numbers 4–10 of the most impactful crypto and blockchain sector players, according to Cointelegraph’s 2023 Top 100 list.
The controversial player at No. 10 was not on Cointelegraph’s Top 100 list for 2022, nor were the players occupying No. 9, 8 and 4. The person who takes the ninth spot on the list shares the same first name as the cotton gin inventor, while No. 8 relates to a country frequently in the news in 2022. No. 4 is a concept that prefers to be kept confidential. The seventh, sixth and fifth positions are players who made Cointelegraph’s 2022 Top 100 list, each significantly higher on the 2023 edition. Try to guess who the players are or check the list to find out!
