|Meet A Guy That Get Paid 5 Bitcoin For Writing Articles On A Website by dickofglory: 3:38am On Jan 14|
vitalik buterin was Born in Russia and raised in Canada, Buterin was interested in mathematics and computer science from an early age. But when he first stumbled on to bitcoin in 2011, it didn't grab him. "I ignored it," he says. "I thought it had no intrinsic value, so it had to fail."
But, over the next few weeks, he grew curious about this unusual creation. He received his first bitcoins as payment for articles written for a site called Bitcoin Weekly, where he was paid five bitcoins per article, the equivalent of $3.75 at the time. "It was my first ever real job, and it paid around $1.30 per hour," he says. He kept writing about the digital currency in the pages of Bitcoin Magazine and other pubs. Then, in 2013, just as he was about to lose interest in the thing, the price of bitcoin skyrocketed.
Since that time, the Russian-Canadian developer has come a long way. In 2018, Forbes estimated Buterin's net worth to be around $400 million to $500 million in crypto.
he's also the founder of ethereum..
