  • Ethereum cofounder Vitalik Buterin has been named among Time Magazine’s 100 most Influential People of 2021.

    • Reddit cofounder Alexis Ohanian wrote Buterin’s profile for the magazine, noting: “What makes Vitalik so special is that he is a builder's builder. No one person could've possibly come up with all of the uses for ethereum, but it did take one person's idea to get it started.”


    • Russian-Canadian Buterin launched the Ethereum network two years after his father introduced him to Bitcoin in 2013.


    • Ethereum’s native currency, Ether, has soared in value over the past year, having grown over 800% from one year ago. Ethereum is also the second largest cryptocurrency in the world by market cap.
