12 Fintech Influencers I Follow (And You Should, Too!) 3

Over the last year or so i have come across various lists highlighting the Top 100 Fintech Influencers and Fintech Powerlists – they’re all good! But for me, i get lost in the sheer number of people on those lists and of course not all of the fintech influencers have an interest in payments (which is my main focus area). I appreciate the thorough analysis behind the rankings and often sift through the various lists to make sure that i don’t miss a thing from the key movers and shakers in the industry.

That said, i decided to create my own fintech influencer list based on a highly intellectual algorithm – my gut! If you follow these guys, you’ll know whats going on in the world of payments, blockchain and fintech. Check out my top 10 fintech influencers in no particular order:
