Bloomberg, the leading finance-economy publication, has recently updated its regularly published Financial Rich list. The inclusion of important names from the crypto industry in the new list attracts the attention of investors and experts.
Binance Founder CZ Makes Top 3!
According to Bloomberg's list, Changpeng Zhao (CZ), the founder of the largest crypto exchange Binance, found himself in the top three of the list. CZ has an estimated net worth of $28.2 billion.
Most of Changpeng Zhao's wealth comes from Binance, the crypto trading platform he founded in 2017. Bloomberg estimated CZ's annual revenue at $12 billion.
Zhao wasn't the only one from the crypto community to join the Finance Rich list. Let's examine the names that took their place on Bloomberg's list:
With a fortune of $ 35 billion, Ken Griffin took the first seat in the Finance Rich list. Citadel Securities, which he owns, offers brokerage services on a large scale. Citadel invested in leading crypto startups like Silvergate in 2022.
Jeff Yass, the founder of Susquehanna, which provides research and consultancy services on capital markets, ranked second on the list with a fortune of $33.1 billion. Yass' company allegedly made large investments in the OPNX exchange.
The company made an official investment of $10 million on the Kucoin exchange in 2022.
