Vitalik Butrini; the story of Google proposal to the creator of Ethereum

The net worth of Vitalik Buterin is about $ 100 million. But if he had already accepted Google job offer, the story could have been completely different.

Buterin became famous after the founding of Ethereum and Bitcoin magazine, according to International Business Times (IBTimes). In the heyday of Bitcoin being more popular than ever, the founders of Bitcoin mining companies could easily add billions of dollars to their net worth. In year 2, Butrint began writing about bitcoin. Somehow he has been the pioneer in publishing Bitcoin awareness for about ten years.

A native of Moscow’s Kolomna in Russia, he experienced his first serious encounter with Bitcoin when he was just 17 years old. He has since won several awards, including the World Technology Prize in the Year 2014, and has been named to celebrities in magazines such as Forbes and Fortune.

The young 26-year-old sparked a lot of curiosity after posting a picture on his Twitter account suggesting Google job. It was suggested to collaborate on a potential digital currency project for a technology giant. Buterin disclosed that Google proposed salary was merely an apprentice’s income.

This happened in the year 2018. He viewed the job offer as a joke or the result of a computer algorithm in the recruitment process. Two years ago, Butrinti was making millions of dollars, so she was not interested in receiving apprenticeships.

The value of each Ethereum at the peak was $1400 and Bottner reportedly had about 405000 Ether. This means that his assets had reached $567 million by year 2018-end. However, when Ether’s value dropped to $300, his wealth also reached $100 million.

The Ethereum founder also earns $144000 a year from the Ethereum Foundation. Buterin also owns the startups Clearmatics and StarkWare.

The value of bitcoin and other digital currencies has clearly declined. Some believe that digital currencies have not yet reached their true potential, providing a new way for financial transactions. When the value of digital currencies fell, so did its creators and founders. During this time, Butrint’s asset value also fell by half. Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss, the founders of the Gemini trading platform, lost about one-third of their net worth in the year 2018.

People have not yet fully exploited the potential and capabilities of digital currencies that can be used in everyday life. However, its use is widespread in many areas. But the reality is that outside the tech industry, it is still difficult for ordinary people to accept it as a new way of doing digital business.

Yat Siu, co-founder of Hong Kong-based venture firm Animoca Brands has argued that on-chain digital property rights are the main aspects of blockchain technology that will drive a more decentralized society. Speaking at Korean Blockchain Week 2022 (KBW), the Hong Kong entrepreneur noted that we’re all “digital dependents” and “data is the resource of metrics” that bring value to platforms like Apple, Google, and Facebook, Sui said: “The most powerful companies in the world today are not energy companies or resource companies, they’re tech companies and they're not powerful because they make software. They're powerful because they control our data.”But unlike the Web2 platforms that we’ve become accustomed to, blockchain-based applications allow us to control that data and not be subject to “digital colonization”, said Sui, adding: “The powerful [thing about] Web3 is the fact that we can take ownership and we can make a big change with this because we have distributed and dec..
