Vitalik Buterin Exclusive Interview: "Cryptocurrency is not a toy"

Cryptocurrency is not a toy; Vitalik Buterin goes over digital currency.

In a special interview with CNN Business, Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin talks about the crypto market's existing state and the collapse of the marketplaces.

Bitcoin master Vitalik Buterin, who has actually lost a lot of money today, informed CNN he's not worried about the marketplace crash, because we've already had a lot of them.

It's too difficult to state when bubbles will pop, so he compared the existing scenario to one. "It might end right now," he said, then continued, "however it might likewise end months from now."

" There have actually been a few huge crypto bubbles since 2012, however they all collapsed since something happened that just exposed the tech wasn't there yet."

Since today's prices, Buterin's Ethereum balance is at 325,000 ETH equivalent to an approximated $895 million, 35% less than its peak worth of $1.4 billion on May 12.

He explained the following distinctions in between the current scene and the one 4 years ago:

" A bit over four years earlier, crypto was still simply a toy. Now it is close to being ready for mainstream adoption."

Ethereum has faced a new narrative after huge organizations entered the marketplace and drove up costs. The current market recession is being blamed on heavily leveraged trading on derivatives exchanges, according to some market observers.

It is "possible" that Ethereum will catch up to Bitcoin in value one day, however Buterin said he does not understand for sure.

According to Binanco, New York, Ethereum's market cap was $318 billion at the time of writing - 42.5% of Bitcoin. In regards to the 'Elon impact,' he said it was a new thing and he 'd ultimately lose his influence.

" Honestly, cryptocurrency space has only been exposed to Elon Musk tweeting for the first time recently, and it has been a bit insaneness sometimes. However I do think that markets will learn. Elon will not control permanently."

In regards to his continued Dogecoin promo, Buterin said, "I do not think Elon has anything destructive in mind."

Ethereum traded at $2,775 on Binanco at the time of press, up 9% on the day.
