Ethereum turns 5 on July 30th! That’s 5 years of history. Five years of progress. Time enough to change the world?
We sit down with Vitalik Buterin and walk through Ethereum’s past, present, and future. Has the vision changed? Has ETH earned its price? What about monetary policy? How’s Vitalik feeling about the future?
Is ETH a triple-point asset?
It seems clear that Vitalik believes the Ethereum community is its strongest asset. This band of Athenians isn’t just here to vanquish foes, it’s here to build a digital civilization for the world. Not burn it down. Build it up.
Vitalik believes crypto is standing strong as one of the few remaining things that’s genuinely international. And as we witness the balkanization of the digital world, the open door to cooperation that Ethereum provides is exactly what humanity needs in order to thrive in the 21st century.
Happy 5th Birthday Ethereum!
The world needs you now more than ever.
