Recently, he was able to catch a prestigious list Time 100. It is the ranking of the 100 most influential people in the world. In it you will find names like Time Cook from Apple, Elon Musk from Tesla or the first woman to head the World Trade Organization Ngozi-Okonjo-Iweala. But the name, which is very well known in the world of cryptocurrencies, also appeared in the ranking – Vitalik Buterin. He rightly deserves this place.
Vitalik Buterin member of the prestigious ranking
For the world of cryptocurrencies, the founder of Ethereum really did a lot. He was nominated for the ranking by one of the founders of Reddit, Alexis Ohanian, who is really excited about Buterin’s work.
“No other person could come up with all the ways to use Etherem, but one man’s idea was needed for his way. From there, a new world opened up and new ways of using blockchain technology emerged. Whether it’s various startups like Sorare, which are returning to the shine of fantasy sports, or Rainbow users presenting their collections of NFT tokens, none of this would have existed without Vitalik’s work. ”
But what is the main factor of success?
Buterin is often described as the largest developer in the world of cryptocurrencies. It’s logical. It is behind a community of value $ 400 billion, which hides a large number of DeFi projects that can change people’s lives. Buterin basically managed to run one of the most ingenious blockchains.
The use of the ETH network is huge. Through payment solutions, real estate, supply chain management, voting, privacy, statistics and many other uses. It currently exists in the world over 3.5 million registered DeFi projects and more than 2,000 DApps working on the ETH network.
There are many personalities who would definitely deserve a place in this ranking, but Vitalik clearly stands out. Buterin survives the life saga of dreams when, at the age of 27, he became a cryptobillionaire and, in addition, reached the prestigious ranking as the only representative of the world of cryptocurrencies. In addition to Buterin, people like Satoshi Nakamoto, Charles Hoskinson and many others have done really invaluable things for the world of cryptocurrencies, so they deserve honor and respect as well.
