Vitalik Buterin
Founder of Ethereum
Vitalik Buterin is the visionary founder of Ethereum, a groundbreaking blockchain platform that functions as a global computer for decentralized applications (DApps). Born in Russia and raised in Canada, Vitalik displayed an early aptitude for technology and mathematics. He co-founded Bitcoin Magazine in 2011, where he began exploring blockchain's potential beyond digital currency.

In 2013, at just 19, Vitalik proposed Ethereum, aiming to create a more versatile blockchain capable of running any decentralized application. His whitepaper laid the foundation for Ethereum, which launched in 2015. Since then, Ethereum has become the second-largest cryptocurrency platform, driving innovation in decentralized finance (DeFi), non-fungible tokens (NFTs), and smart contracts.

Vitalik's work has significantly advanced the blockchain industry, advocating for decentralized, open-source projects that promote transparency and inclusivity. He continues to influence the tech world with his thought leadership and ongoing contributions to Ethereum's development.
