Brian Armstrong is the oldest among the 15 youngest billionaires listed by Business Insider. Aged 37, his net worth is estimated at $1 billion, which puts him on the 1990th position in the Forbes list.
Armstrong co-founded Coinbase together with Fred Ehrsam, who has previously been listed both in Forbes 30 Under 30 and TIME Magazine’s 30 Under 30 people who are changing the world.
Coinbase is the largest cryptocurrency exchange in the US right now. It also operates Coinbase Pro, formerly known as GDAX. The company was valued at $8 billion in 2018 when it raised $300 million from venture capital giants like Tiger Global Management, Andreessen Horowitz, and Polychain.
The richest one in the list is Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, who is 35-years-old. His net worth is estimated at $54.7 billion. We may count Zuckerberg in a crypto-oriented billionaires list since he terrified central bankers and governments with the Libra project.
Interestingly, Michael Novogratz and Winklevoss brothers didn’t make the Forbes list, which includes over 2,000 billionaires.
Ripple co-founder Chris Larsen reached the 804th position with $2.6 billion. Larsen was Ripple CEO until December 2016, and now he’s executive chairman.
