20 Famous Bitcoin Billionaires and Millionaires

Following the creation of Bitcoin on January 3rd, 2009 by the mysterious developer, Satoshi Nakamoto, many early adopters of the cryptocurrency have greatly increased their wealth over the years, becoming millionaires and billionaires. These early crypto investors envisaged great opportunities where many others saw a risky investment. Since the 2010s, the digital assets ecosystem has been making a strong statement in the wealth sector as the number of Bitcoin millionaires and billionaires has constantly been on the rise with each passing year.

Having managed to predict the future impact of Bitcoin on our society, the Bitcoin early investors have been the first to profit and build wealth in the nascent industry of crypto as Bitcoin is now regarded by many as the most successful blockchain-based cryptocurrency in the world. Though the price of the coin is volatile, it has gone on to change the lives of several crypto investors who are mostly founders and chief executive officers of the biggest companies in the blockchain.

While Nakamoto is ranked as the richest person in Bitcoin as he owns about 1.1 million BTC and is said to be worth over $40 billion (as the price of the cryptocurrency has presently surpassed $40,000 per coin), there are other investors who are also regarded among the richest people in crypto. They started accumulating or mining the cryptocurrency in the early days and are worth over $30 billion. Here are their details.
