You’ve probably heard about Ethereum and how it powers many products and services. You may not know that Ethereum exists partly because one man, Dmitry Buterin, got tired of Soviet Union propaganda. He moved his family to Toronto, where he raised his son, Vitalik Buterin, who would later drop out of college to co-found the Ethereum platform.
And that’s only the short version of the story. Dmitry, who himself founded and built three multimillion-dollar businesses, played a significant role in introducing Vitalik to bitcoin early on. Fast forward years later, he’s undeterred and excited about the future of Ethereum. What does that look like?
