Charles Hoskinson Narrowly Beats CZ to become Most Influential Crypto Influencer of 2022

• Charles Hoskinson was voted the most influential crypto influencer for 2022, beating Binance’s CZ by a whisker.
• Whalechart.org conducted a poll for the most influential persons in crypto for 2022, with 36,000 people voting.
• Binance’s Changpeng Zhao and Cardano founder Charles Hoskinson were the top two contenders, with Charles Hoskinson securing 36.5% of the votes.

Cryptocurrency has seen some significant changes in the past year, including the collapse of FTX and the US lawmakers mulling money laundering charges against Binance’s CZ. With this in mind, Whalechart.org conducted a poll for the most influential persons in crypto for 2022. The poll included four options, namely Vitalik Buterin, Charles Hoskinson, Changpeng „CZ“ Zhao, and Sam Bankman-Fried.

A total of 36,000 people voted, and Charles Hoskinson emerged as the top crypto influencer for 2022. He secured 36.5 percent of the votes, with Binance’s Changpeng Zhao coming in second at 34 percent. FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried was ahead of Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin by seven percentage points.

Upon the announcement, Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao congratulated Charles Hoskinson, who responded by calling it a tough vote and suggesting they call it a draw. This result is in stark contrast to CoinMarketCap’s Most Influential People in Crypto list, where CZ was the top contender.

Overall, it appears that Charles Hoskinson’s work on the Cardano blockchain has won him recognition from the crypto community. With a close finish, and both CZ and Hoskinson being influential leaders in the space, it is clear that the crypto sphere is in good hands.
