Vitalik Buterin on "The Portal", Ep. #012 - The Ethereal Prince and His Virtual Machine

#Smart Contract #Ethereum #Programmer #Wall Street #Entertainment
In this episode, Vitalik Buterin sits down with Eric to discuss ethereum, the wider world of crypto and heterodox economics.
Taking note of the new development of blockchain in 2010, Eric wrote an essay called โ€œGo Virtual Young Manโ€. A few years later, a Thiel Fellow named Vitalik created a virtual machine with an idiosyncratic smart contract system and a currency. Ironically, Eric had recently become a Managing Director at Thiel Capital. Perennially circling each other intellectually, the two now sit down in person to discuss economic paradigm shifts, crypto and the future of online sovereignty and social coordination..

I feel like Joe Rogan listening to these guys when he says, "I'm just a dumb ape" in comparison

Who sounds more like a computer, Vitalik or Don Hoffman?

It sounds to me like Vitalik is the voice behind Radiohead's "Fitter Happier" track.

I'm truly convinced that Elon Musk and Vitalik Buterin are vistors from other planets.

Eric interrupts so rarely, and when he does, it is just to bring the listener up to speed and to help his guest out of the weeds--skillful.
