Ethereum managed to break through another record level of $3,000, after which it actively continued its growth and is now selling at $3,300 on the Binance exchange. Thus, he officially turned Buterin into a billionaire.
The value of ETH tokens held in his account has doubled since January 2021. More than 333,500 ETH tokens are now concentrated on the public address of the founder of the second coin on the market.
In 2018, Buterin stated that this is indeed his wallet. In addition to an account that now holds more than $1 billion, he has another one that now holds more than $2.8 million. The only thing that will remain a mystery for the crypto community is the fact that Vitalik does not have a couple of "spare" crypto wallets, in addition to the two listed.
It is worth remembering the period of "crypto winter", when due to the fall of the cryptocurrency, Buterin lost more than $460 million. Against this background, at a certain stage, especially caustic Reddit users poured sarcastic comments that they could donate some money to Vitalik. Now, instead of caustic jokes, many community representatives congratulated the Ethereum team and the head of the company on the achievement of ATH, wishing further “breakthroughs”.
One of the users rightly noted that Buterin became "the second oldest billionaire who managed to earn all the money by his own labor". It's hard to disagree with this. It remains only to congratulate Vitalik and hope for further Xs from the Ethereum course on Binance.
