5 Crypto Twitter Influencers You Need to Follow NOW

Twitter is awash with accounts talking about crypto. But finding the authoritative crypto influencers is a hard task. News feeds are flooded with self-proclaimed crypto gurus. Some are the real deal, but many are not.

We did our due diligence and spent hours scouring through Twitter to bring you this curated list of the top five crypto Twitter influencers you need to be following. These influencers have both big and small following but they are all experts in crypto.

They all share insightful tweets with their audiences that can help you expand your crypto knowledge and get top trading tips. 


1. Vitalik Buterin


At the top of our list is Ethereum’s founder, Vitalik Buterin. He is the undisputed leader of crypto Twitter. Vitalik is active on the platform and has over 4.1 million followers. 

As you might imagine from the founder of Ethereum, Vitalik is incredibly passionate about all things crypto and blockchain. His experience in developing one of the most successful crypto projects around means he has a level of expertise that is hard to find in this relatively new technology. 

You can follow him for in-depth, insightful, and sometimes humorous commentaries about crypto news as well as reviews, articles, and shared resources that will help you better understand everything related to crypto


2. Brian Armstrong


The CEO and co-founder of Coinbase, Brian Armstrong is number two on our list. He is one of the most respected voices in the crypto world and has over 1 million followers.

Coinbase has been known to take sometimes controversial or even radical stances on crypto politics. Brian himself uses his Twitter platform to champion the economic freedom that cryptocurrency affords everyday people. 

But his feed is not only controversial politics. You can also expect to see a wide range of shared content, and insightful commentary aside it. 

Following Brian gives you a front row seat into the world of politics and regulatory changes that are impacting cryptocurrency.  


3. Andreas Antonopoulos


Andreas Antonopoulos is the self-proclaimed bitcoin & open blockchain expert. A title no-one will likely argue.

He is a prominent Bitcoin speaker and advocate, and has become highly respected in the world of blockchain and crypto. He hosts the popular podcast “Let’s Talk Bitcoin” and has an almost fn-boy enthusiasm when he talks about crypto. 

His enthusiasm for crypto is contagious, even through his Twitter feed. Following Andreas will open you up to masterful insights, breaking news, and resources. Not only that, but it will also get you excited to explore even the more tedious areas of blockchain. 


4. Tim Draper

On Twitter his feed mostly consists of content around crypto, bitcoin, and blockchain technology. He is a major advocate for crypto and blockchain adoption and often shares insightful commentary on the possible applications for these technologies. 


5. Lea Thompson


Lea Thompson is not your typical crypto influencer. She is a branding, marketing, and sales professional who worked in the tech industry. 

Her journey with crypto started when she uploaded music covers on an online platform where users could earn crypto for their content.

Lea quickly became a crypto enthusiast, as her handle @girlgone_crypto suggests. She believes that blockchain technology is the future for individuals and businesses alike. 

Her tweets are often quite humorous so you can expect her to brighten up your newsfeed.


To Sum Up 


Crypto isn’t always an easy space to break into. Understanding blockchain and the implications that crypto can have on a business can feel overwhelming when you start out. But these influencers can help break down those barriers. They are not gatekeepers. Many of them openly advocate for the widespread adoption of crypto while sharing their own knowledge to help us get there faster.
