Top 40 Blockchain Influencers of 2018


Alex Mashinsky
CEO & Co-founder, Celsius Network

Alex has become a staple in the tech community. He is one of the inventors of VOIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol), with a foundational patent dating back to 1994 and is now working on MOIP (Money Over Internet Protocol) technology. Over 35 patents have been issued to Alex, relating to exchanges, VOIP protocols, messaging and communication. As a founder of seven New York City-based startups, Alex has raised more than $1 billion and exited over $3 billion.

Impressive stats, to say the least! In 2017, Mashinsky co-founded Celsius Network on the belief that "banking is broken" - a sentiment felt by many in the crypto space. Celsius is a decentralized P2P loans platform built around the Celsius Wallet. Celsius is among the only online cryptocurrency wallets that pay the highest interest income and charge the lowest interest rates on dollar loans. Additionally, they promise to match or beat any written offer.
