To review the basics
Hasheur, the essential French on cryptos
YouTube 559k subscribers, Twitter 317k subscribers, TikTok 165k subscribers
The path of Hasheur, whose real name is Owen Simonin, commands respect: at only 14 years old, the teenager founded a Minecraft server… and managed an entire team from his bedroom. Now 25, Owen has two hats: both YouTuber and CEO of Just Mining, ” allowing everyone to invest in the blockchain » and acclaimed by « Forbes » magazine. His YouTube channel, Hasheur, is one of the most important on the subject of cryptocurrencies in France. His goal : “Allow Mr. and Mr.me Everyone to learn about complex topics related to cryptocurrencies and everything that revolves around them, such as NFTs and the metaverse. » But no question for Hasheur to dangle to its hundreds of thousands of subscribers the promise of becoming rich in a snap of the fingers. For the YouTuber, influence rhymes with responsibility: “I want to send messages to prevent investment-related risks. “. An educational approach that is all the more important since Owen has noticed a rejuvenation of its subscribers – 35 years old against 40 years old on average a year ago – and the price of cryptocurrencies has fallen sharply. Bitcoin has thus lost more than 50% of its value in six months.
For those who want to invest… and who knows how (one day) to become rich
TefleurS, the streamer who became a millionaire
Twitter 375k subscribers, YouTube 115k subscribers
At 27 years old, TeufeurS has a success story that has more than one dream. A former truck driver, he created his YouTube channel in 2010 to occupy his days of unemployment by talking about video games. Backed by a growing community, the streamer heads to the online casino, where he begins earning small fortunes in bitcoins. An area that will bring him luck: in the space of a few weeks, he becomes a millionaire (in bitcoins), driven by a few partnerships with online gambling platforms. Radical change for this streamer who was still filming live in his 19m studio2 two years ago. Now based in Malta, he continues to share his victories (and sometimes his failures) with his community. Since January, TeufeurS has launched its own media, NFTalk, which places NFTs at the center of our daily lives, by addressing both the ecological impact of the blockchain and the use of NFTs in notarial law.
Yann Darwin, the opportunistic entrepreneur
YouTube 229k subscribers, Instagram 79.7k subscribers
Nothing predestined Yann Darwin – Yann-Loïc Chort of his real name – to count hundreds of thousands of views on YouTube. The credo of this former firefighter? Democratize investment, in all its forms. Starting with real estate, his first hobby, which allowed him at 25 to earn enough to quit and change his life. The investor-entrepreneur-influencer has surfed in recent years on new investment opportunities and assumes “a 360° approach” : “You have to learn to master several asset classes (stock market, real estate, cryptos, metaverse, etc.) to avoid being subjected to the completely crazy volatility of cryptos. » In his videos, the tone he adopts is as cash as his success is flashy (he lives in Dubai, where his company Greenbull is based). But it must be recognized that the businessman is very pedagogical without being simplistic. “I produce long content, lasting around forty minutes, which often discourages onlookers. It’s desired ! Investing is a workable skill, not a recipe for cooking. » CQFD.

Grégory Raymond, the crypto and NFT journalist
Twitter, 134k followers
Covering the successes and setbacks of the financial and technological world is his job. “The interest in this subject was born on September 15, 2008, the day of the bankruptcy of the American investment bank Lehman Brothers. Not understanding what was akin to a cataclysm and not measuring the consequences, I swore to myself not to suffer this misunderstanding again., can we read on the LinkedIn profile of the journalist who first dreamed of becoming a film critic before getting caught up in cryptos. The Cypriot banking crisis in 2013, which caused a boom in Bitcoin, will be this new trigger. On Twitter, the ex-journalist of “Capital” magazine relays serious information on cryptos and blockchain on an international scale, which has earned him a solid reputation on the social network. However, Gregory Raymond does not see himself as an influencer: “I deeply feel like a journalist and my role is to simply explain complicated things. » A regular guest on the set of BFM Crypto, in March 2022 he co-founded the media The Big Whale alongside his colleague Raphaël Bloch (formerly “L’Express”, “Les Echos”) in the form of a newsletter sent twice per week to be “at the cutting edge of information in 15 minutes”. For him, it is essential to understand the Web3 revolution to decipher and anticipate the world of tomorrow. And to specify: “You don’t have to be a mathematician to read us. ».
