Time Magazine has included two cryptocurrency firms on its list of the 100 Most Influential Companies.
One of the listed entities was Coinbase which rolled out to the public with a direct listing earlier this month and other is Digital Currency Group (DGC).
Published earlier this week, the list marks an important milestone in the evolution of the crypto system, signally its strength in daily life.
(DGC) was called a “disrupter” and listed alongside Huawei, Clubhouse, Shopify and Tesla.
Thanks to DGC, investors can get more familiar with crypto and understand it better, specifically through asset manager Grayscale and the company's dedicated publication CoinDesk.
Even now Greyscale is producing a series of educational videos with Time to help boost awareness for crypto products and investments, and generally boost overall understanding of the sector.
Meanwhile, Coinbase was listed as a “titan” alongside other high-profile companies, including Amazon, Alibaba, Google, Facebook, Walmart and more.
Following the listing, the company ended up its first day of trading at NASDAQ on April 14 worth $86bn, making it the most valuable US financial exchange and one that is only going to grow in future.
Having Time Magazine list both companies is proof that crypto has a place in mainstream finances. Even skeptics such as JP Morgan are now rethinking their stances on crypto and are happy to guide clients through the industry's intricacies.
