Vitalik Buterin expresses his long term vision for Ethereum.

May 17, 2022

In a long Twitter thread, Vitalik expressed contradictions between his values and desires for the Ethereum network.

Vitalike desires to see Ethereum become a more Bitcoin-like system emphasizing long-term stability, including culturally.

However, Ethereum co-founder noted that getting there would require quite a lot of active coordinated short-term change.

Ethereum co-founder also expressed his dislike for the modern financial blockchain applications like million dollar NFT monkey pics.

But Vitalike appreciates these blockchain “applications” as they are a big part of what keeps the crypto economy running.

Last year, Ethereum co-founder compared bitcoin to a pocket calculator and a new potential blockchain to a smartphone.

“Crypto itself has a lot of dystopian potential if implemented wrong ” ~ Vitalik Buterin
