    I’m fully on-board the ETH train, but this place is starting to form a bit of a cult-like following around this guy.

    I’m going to assume this is true OP. Have a gold for sharing this. VB is the mind that will lead us to an enlightened future.

    tldr; Ethereum co-creator Vitalik Buterin has revealed he profited over $4 million from a $25,000 investment that he made into Dogecoin in 2016. He gave it all away to charity. He recalled being caught off-guard by the speculative frenzy that resulted from Elon Musk’s fascination with the meme-coin.{}

    Vitalik is a legend. And to think none of this would have happened if Blizzard hadn’t removed the damage component of his beloved warlock’s Siphon Life spell.

    That entire podcast is 3 hours of mostly Vitalik talking and I could honestly listen to 3 more hours on top of that of him talking. Dude is just so…listenable to?

    It’s nice of him to give it all away to charity.
    Still…selling when everyone says hodl wasn’t nice.
    In average Joe terms he had 1000 bucks and gave 4 bucks to charity.
    It’s nice, but not really hurting him at all.

    If that’s true then very good on him. If there must be a ‘face of crypto’ (and let’s face it, right or wrong somebody will be made into one) much better him than that pest beginning with E.

    Also the animated Vitalik here is really quite adorable!

    But, like if I had 25,000 to “give away” shiiiit maybe I could have made a difference too. I could have made an important contribution…

    Wouldn’t you?

    This just shows that he really wants to change the world for the better. This man is going to be a legend in the history books.

    lol, lets say dude is worth JUST 1bil. 4 million of 1 billion is .4% Let’s say my savings has 50K, .4% of that is $200. Can you guys write of my praises and worship me for my $200 donation?

  • Healthy-Lifestyle-20

    Forget the 4 million he made now because it means nothing to him now, but imagine putting in $25,000 in Doge back then 🤯😂Mad respect.

    I honestly don’t give a shit about these heartwarming articles anymore thats supposed to make someone look like a fucking hero. This guy invented a crypto currency. Good for him… the real heros are the ones over looked. The ones taking out your trash , performing surgeries, hooking up your home with electricity, these people are running short on the ground. .if you don’t have a skill or trade that builds America . America will be run into a shit show ..stop.folk heroing this guy’s !

    Buterin and the EF premined 70% of all coins in circulation. Let’s ignore that and focus on fostering this cult of Ethereum around one guy who has endorsed child porn and completely undermine the integrity of the network which already runs on rented servers with only 3000 active nodes.

    Software rules. No rulers.
