Brian Armstrong, the CEO of Coinbase, one of the world’s leading and popular crypto exchanges in the USA, managed to be among the 15 billionaires in the USA at the latest. Although Forbes recently published its list of billionaires, this list was prepared by Business Insider.
The focus of Business Insider’s list was young billionaires. Armstrong, 37, is estimated to have nearly $ 1 billion in wealth. This puts itself in the 1990th place on Forbes’ list, placing it among the top 15 in Business Insider’s list. The top of the list, which Brian Armstrong ranked 15th, is 22-year-old Kylie Jenner.
Armstrong launched the Coinbase cryptocurrency exchange with Fred Ehrsam, and the duo managed to enter the TIME’s 30 Year-Old Under 30 list with the Forbes 30 Under 30 list. Although the cryptocurrency sector has been experiencing a serious decline recently, Coinbase managed to survive unlike many other exchanges and continued to serve even at peak times.
In contrast, cryptocurrency exchanges such as Binance may cause the loss of income to the users during their busy times.
