TIME Magazine included co-founder and current leader of Ethereum, Vitalik Buterin, in its list of this year’s most influential people.
Former executive chairman of Reddit Alexis Ohanian composed the write-up featured in this year’s issue. Not only did Ohanian reflect with some personal pride at Buterin’s development, but also emphasized how his accomplishments are enabling newfound potential.
Ohanian began by reflecting on Buterin’s growth with pride, having followed his career early on via Reddit’s r/Ethereum community. He then rattles off some of Buterin’s higher profile achievements. These include Ethereum’s $400 billion market cap, the development of decentralized apps (dApps), and the boom in non-fungible tokens (NFTs). However, to Ohanian these seem somewhat beside the point.
