But we are in the 21 century where lack of means is no more an excuse to turn your ideas to profitable realities. Crowdfunding came to his rescue and Vitalik got his capital; he completed his project by 2015.

Early Childhood

Even as a child Buterin’s skills astounded everyone. He was one of the few gifted children who can add three digits numbers in absolutely no time at all. Buterin was always interested in math, programming, and economics. He has, in fact, won the bronze medal in international Olympiad for informatics in 2012.

Role in Bitcoin Magazine

He was introduced to bitcoin when he was 17 and he never lost interest in that. He became the co-founder and leading writer for the Bitcoin Magazine in 2011. This is the first significant written work on bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. He has also contributed several research articles on blockchain technology and cryptocurrency in several other magazines.
