Most Influential 40: Gavin Wood



Polkadot, the proof-of-stake blockchain Gavin Wood built after co-founding the world’s largest blockchain Ethereum, is gearing up for launch.

Many Polkadot’s foundational projects are set to go live this month, following a series of closely-watched parachain auctions.
