Forbes has selected 15 young leaders in the cryptocurrency business for its list of top 30-30 published in 2022. Despite its misleading name, Forbes' annual under 30 list actually includes 600 under the 30s in 20 categories such as finance, gaming, and music. Notable alumni from last year's announcement include Sam Bankman Fried, founder of FTX and Alameda Research, and Brian Tubergen, co-founder of CoinList, an American token offering, and exchange platform.
In its latest issue released on Wednesday, Forbes recently noted that children under the age of 30 have raised more than $1 billion. The publication listed around 15 cryptocurrencies, including Alamada Research CEO Caroline Ellison and Sam Trabucco, OpenSea co-founder Alex Atallah and PleasrDAO founder Emily Young.

The category with the most leaders in cryptocurrency (11) is finance, which includes Clinton Bembry, founder of the decentralized finance-based Slingshot trading platform. Tegan Kline, co-founder of Edge & Node blockchain data indexing protocol; Roneil Rumburg, co-founder and CEO of the blockchain-based streaming service Audius. In addition to finances, Ian PleasrDao was awarded the Arts category for work collecting an impressive collection of intangible tokens, such as Edward Snowden's first drop of 2,224 Ether (ETH) in April (currently $10.1 million).
Blockworks co-founders Michael Ippolito and Jason Janowitz have also been included in the media category for their commitment to crypto journalism.
The cryptocurrency delegation has grown 50% this year from the 10 young cryptocurrency leaders listed in previous releases, reflecting the growing trend of cryptocurrency adoption in mainstream media. This may be partly due to the increase in the number of crypto entrepreneurs making their names on the lists of the richest people in the past 12 months.
Last month, seven cryptocurrency founders were named on the Australian Financial Review's annual list of the wealthiest entrepreneurs under 40. Forbes' list of the richest billionaires for April 2021 also included 13 cryptocurrency leaders, a threefold increase from a year earlier.
