Vitalik Buterin About His Ethereum Wallet Balance
Yesterday Vitalik Buterin posted in his Twitter account the information about the amount of Ethereum tokens he owns. It was his response to the accusation made by an ecomonist and crypto hater Nouriel Roubini.
A couple of days ago Roubini called Buterin and Joseph Lubin, Ethereum cofounder, «ring-leader of the criminal pre-mining sale/scam that created Ether. They stole 75% of the Ether supply and became instant “billionaires” of fake wealth.» Buterin clarified via Twitter that he “never personally held more than (approximately) 0.9% of all ETH” in circulation. He also added that it included gifts and charity donations.
Vitalik posted a screenshot showing that his wallet has 365,000 ETH. It is valued at around $72.8 million. However, Buterin has also reportedly invested approximately $100,000 in OmiseGo (OMG), an open-source payment network and decentralized exchange (DEX) developed on the Ethereum blockchain. Additionally, Buterin said he has a few other crypto addresses which hold digital tokens whose worth is “quite small relatively speaking” and that the address he has shared accounts for most of his digital currency trading activity.
