Vitalik Buterin, the co-founder of Etherium and one of the most influential figures in the cryptocurrency industry, said that he can no longer be considered a billionaire in light of the cryptocurrency market decline.
Buterin stated this on the social network Twitter. He was responding to user ne0liberal’s tweet about messages from Ilon Musk and Jeff Bezos.
Buterin emphasized that “communicating with the people” has never been any particular advantage. Though he noted that he respects Ilon and Jeff for talking directly to subscribers. A little later, he wrote that he shouldn’t be considered a billionaire.
“By the way, I’m not a billionaire anymore,” Buterin wrote.
The cryptocurrency community did not fail to support the “founding father” of the second cryptocurrency. Many wrote that with the rise of the cryptocurrency market, Buterin’s status as a billionaire will also be restored.
