Who is 'Vitalik Buterin'?

Vitalik Buterin is a famous Canadian-Russian programmer and the inventor of smart contracts. As a co-founder of the Ethereum foundation, he is one of the most famous faces of the crypto scene.

How Ethereum came to life

The mathematical talent of Vitalik was early anticipated. In the 3rd class he left public school to join a private school for high-flyers. When he was 17 years old, his father told him about the rudimentary functionalities of Bitcoin for the first time. Since this day, Vitalik has kept his interest in cryptocurrencies and decentralized networks. In 2013, he published the Whitepaper of Ethereum.

Since its launch, Ethereum has developed into a positive direction as it is the second largest cryptocurrency in terms of market capitalization. The automated version of contractual agreements (smart contracts) have changed the frame of negotiating agreements. “DAOs” or Decentralized Autonomous Organizations, value-adding organizations not ruled by a single manager or worker, were all of a sudden not a vision but reality.
