These stats don’t lie.
Salih Sarikaya maintains a balanced view to subjects of fintech and blockchain—really any subject he entertains.
He is not one to make brash proclamations, rather he inspires honest and intellectual discourse over issues of interest. His timely twitter polls have become a rallying point for cryptocurrency and fintech enthusiasts as it captures the opinions of a vast number of knowledgeable and interested respondents.
He posts quite frequently. On the average, he lets out 9 tweets per day ranging from informed personal opinions and interesting questions to news excerpts and trending tidbits.
On one occasion, he raised a really thought-provoking matter. He asked what strategy would best suit a person who bought bitcoin (BTC) above $18,000 (BTC has since crashed and trades below 7k now). It’s interesting to follow the interesting responses that followed while he punctuated with replies. Speak of real engagement.
His influence in the industry has not gone unnoticed by the seemingly ubiquitous impersonation scam bots which invade posts of respected industry figures asking for donations of cryptocurrencies. No one is immune, not even Vitalik ‘Not giving away ETH’ Buterin.
