I wonder how Forbes calculated the state of the estimated millionaires, since it was certainly not easy to do, because of the inherent volatility of cryptorics. According to Forbes , the assessment was conducted in the “from and to” range and was based on an approximate estimate of the stock of crypto currency in the list participant, the profit that remained after the payment of taxes from the alleged crypto-currency assets and shares in the companies of the crypto-currency sector. That is, it can be argued that the rating still has an approximate nature.

The edition counted only 19 cryptillionaires. The top line of the list of cryptoglossies is occupied by: the head of Ripple Chris Larsen, whose state is estimated at 7.5 to 8 billion dollars. Joseph Lavin, one of the creators of Ethereum, which has from one to five billion dollars in crypto-currencies. The founder of Binance Changpeng Zhao, whose fortune can reach $ 2 billion. The Winklewoss brothers, who have up to a billion dollars or slightly more. And Matthew Mallon, an individual investor in crypto-currencies, with a fortune of about $ 1 billion in crypto-currencies.

When compiling the rating, Forbes proceeded from the prices for January 19, 2018. Recall that on January 19 Bitcoin cost 12 thousand dollars.
