Paul is also well-known for placing calls that the Bitcoin price would hit $50,000 on 28th December 2018. He bought the 275 calls for $3,600 each; they are now worth around $10 each. Ergo, you probably shouldn’t listen to his investment tips.

18. Nick Szabo: @NickSzabo4

Nick Szabo, a computer scientist, is a hugely famous name in crypto. Although he has repeatedly denied it, Szabo is one of the most likely candidates to be the mysterious Satoshi Yakamoto.

Dan Price
In his previous life, Dan spent five years providing investment advice to clients. You might assume, therefore, he was savvy enough to spot the opportunities presented by cryptocurrency in its early days. Sadly, he wasn’t. But that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have a passion for all things blockchain today. He strongly believes in long-term future of the technology and wants to help everyone else understand its benefits. Just don’t listen to his market tips.
