Buterin Archives - 2100NEWS

UrbanFebruary 20, 2019


Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin has revealed key details about his cryptocurrency holdings. As part of an ask-me-anything session on Reddit, Buterin revealed that some 10% of his non Ethereum-based crypto holdings are in the Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Dogecoin and ZCash cryptocurrencies.

He also revealed that he possesses some 10% less than the value of his ETH holdings in Ethereum-based tokens including Kyber Network, Maker, Omisego and Augur in his portfolio.

In a frank disclosure, Buterin also added that in the last year he has received payment – although he stopped short of specifying the amount – of a “few advisor tokens” from cryptocurrency projects, including some of the tokens he named “above” (presumably in the Ethereum-based token category).

The Ethereum co-founder urged other prominent cryptocurrency advocates to follow suit with similarly open disclosures, stating, “I’d definitely support more people actively involved in protocol decision-making making such statements.”
