✨ Part II Out Now for Bankless Premium Subscribers:
✨ DEBRIEF | Unpacking the Episode:
Vitalik Buterin is a crypto-economic researcher, author of the Ethereum Whitepaper, builder, and philosopher. He also recently published a new book titled, “Proof of Stake: The Making of Ethereum and the Philosophy of Blockchains.”
In his first Bankless appearance post-merge, Vitalik shares his behind-the-scenes perspective on the merge, looking back—what he would’ve done differently, and most importantly—what’s next?
This is a two-part episode that you don’t what to miss! Part one is all about what’s next for Ethereum. And part two covers more of the social/philosophical realm of holistically, what is Ethereum. Further, Vitalik explores his thoughts on artificial intelligence and its relationship to crypto.
