Decentralization in crypto is a myth. It is a system more centralized than North Korea: miners are centralized, exchanges are centralized, developers are centralized dictators (Buterin is “dictator for life” ) & the Gini inequality coefficient of bitcoin is worse than North Korea

The Twitter exchange between Roubini and Vitalik Buterin started but only yesterday, as Buterin, a new world economy, said the crisis at the latest in 2021 before. Buterin said that the statement is based on no analysis of the financial markets. He wants to be the next “Guru” is celebrated, who predicted a crisis. Perhaps Roubini has referred to the Tweet and responded. He wrote that should take care of Buterin dear to his stuff, what he supposedly knows something. Buterin should rather take care of the Proof-of-Stake, he promises, already since 2013, and the Ethereum-a Blockchain scalable, and secure.

Vitalik, just shut up & speak about stuff that you can claim u know a lil about. You have promising Proof of Stake since 2013 & we are still waiting for a system that is scalable, decentralized & secure. But that is impossible as your inconsistent trinity principle proves.

To said Roubini’s Proof-of-Stake-comment Buterin, that the “Design is basically finished and we are now in the development phase”.

And the design is basically done and we’re in the development stages now.

Roubini called Buterin and Ethereum co-founder Joseph Lubin, finally, as a Criminal, the billionaires over night because you have Ether premined. The Economist accused the Duo also have three 75% of the ETH Supply stolen. This causes Buterin revealed his ETH address, and how much Ether he has actually. The Buterin specified address contains “only” 365.003 ETH in value from the current level of $ 74 million. In addition, Buterin also holds $ 100,000 in OmiseGo (OMG).

I never personally hero more than ~0.9% of all ETH, and my net worth never came close to $1b. So, I’m pretty sure there are no criminal laws against pre-mining.

Nevertheless, a certain degree of harm joy was not to be overlooked.

ETH fur 9% in the last day while BTC-fur 5%. I don’t take any credit or blame for it & I have ZERO position, long or short, on any crypto-currencies. Unlike the sleazy con men, self-interested scammers & price manipulator in crypto land I never talk on my book as I have none
