Bitcoin is the most well-known cryptocurrency in circulation today. Created in 2008 by the mysterious inventor (or group of inventors) going by the name of Satoshi Nakamoto, it has established itself as a pioneer of digital currencies. Bitcoin hit its highest value of $19,891 in 2017, and investors are hopeful for another huge rise in the coming months.

In the first place, we have Roger Ver with a $520 million fortune. Roger Ver was one of the earliest investor's in bitcoin and has been promoting the cryptocurrency Bitcoin Cash for the last several years. He serves as the executive chairman of the popular website Bitcoin.com. In 2014, he renounced his United States citizenship, after having run into some legal trouble, and having spent 10 months in jail. He holds a passport in Saint Kitts and Nevis, and has spent many years living in Japan. 

Secondly, and perhaps the most recognized faces in the cryptocurrency world are the Winklevoss twins. Former Olympic rowers ventured into the world of Internet entrepreneurship as venture capitalists. Estimated to own more than $1 billion worth of bitcoin, the brothers are worth more than $600 million, combined. They were portrayed in 2010's hit film, The Social Network; when studying at Harvard University, they founded the ConnectU social media site, which was the original inspiration for the present-day Facebook.

Also, Tony Gallippi is one of the pioneers in the cryptocurrency world. He cofounded BitPay in 2011, a comprehensive website that allows users to purchase goods and commodities. Within the first year, the website grew from 100 merchants, to over 1,100. The venture has had massive success, due in part to the backing from high-level investors like Virgin Group, Yahoo, and Index Ventures. BitPay is the largest bitcoin checkout website, and continues to reflect massive profits for investors. Tony Gallippi has amassed a net worth of $20 million from his efforts.

What is more, Blythe Masters is a prominent English economist who previously served as Head of Global Commodities at JP Morgan Chase bank. She previously co-founded the blockchain trading company, Digital Asset Holdings, where she was CEO from 2015-2018, when she stepped down from the position.  She's famously advocated for the building of blockchain, while she isn't a huge bitcoin fan. Among her achievements in business, she is credited as being the founder of the credit default swap. Despite being on a bit of a professional hiatus, she is still one of the most successful blockchain investors, with a net worth of $50 million.

Finally, Tim Draper is a venture capital investor who has made over $1 billion with his portfolio of investments. In 2014 he received coverage for his auction purchase of bitcoin, seized from the black market. The 30,000 bitcoins were reportedly worth $19 million at the time of the sale. He made a $20 million dollar profit when he predicted that the bitcoin would rise to an all-time high value of $10,000 per bitcoin, which happened in 2017. As a successful businessman, he also hosts seminars and training programs for those interested in investing.
