TIME magazine published a list of the 100 most influential companies in the world in 2022. Among the pioneers were OpenSea and The Sandbox, and among the innovative companies that have changed the status quo – Paxful.

The publication included in the list those companies that shape the future of various sectors of the economy, including healthcare, entertainment, technology.

They were selected on criteria such as relevance, impact, innovation, leadership, ambition and success. The companies were also categorized as pioneers, titans, leaders and innovators.

OpenSea got on the list thanks to its role around the noise of irreplaceable tokens. The volume of trade on the market jumped 646 times last year to $ 14.6 billion.

“In addition to art and creativity, NFT is used for tickets to events, games, music and fashion. It is possible that one day almost everything we have will be reported in the blockchain.”

– said the executive director and co-founder of OpenSea, Devin Finzer.

The Sandbox entered the Top 100 as an example of a “new world”. Sales of digital land in the metaverse project exceeded $ 2 billion. In one year, the number of owners jumped 375% to 19,000, including Snoop Dogg, Gucci and others. The company reached 2.1 million users.

Paxful deserved to be on the list thanks to its commitment to making cryptocurrencies accessible to all. The peer-to-peer platform with 6 million users worldwide has reduced the barrier to entering the digital asset space.

“Bitcoin as a medium of exchange can unite the economy and enable billions of people without bank accounts”

Said CEO Ray Youssef.

We remind you that in 2021 TIME named Elon Musk “Person of the Year”.

Earlier, the magazine sold three covers in the form of irreplaceable tokens and began accepting cryptocurrencies for subscription payments.
