VITALIK BUTERIN

VITALIK BUTERIN
Vitalik is one of the inventors of Ethereum. Vitalik first discovered Bitcoin in 2011, and the combination of math, economics, and an immediate sense that it represented the way money “should be” immediately drew him onto the scene. In September 2011, he became the co-founder and original head writer of Bitcoin Magazine. Vitalik then founded Ethereum, a blockchain-based arbitrary-state Turing-full scripting platform useful for smart contracts, marketplaces for computing resources, financial experimentation, decentralized governance, and many other use cases we haven’t even thought of.
