Reacting to the post, one of the users wrote, “I defend you as a founder that stayed working, building free and open-source software and donating millions to medical research to save lives, even the haters’ [sic].” “Not a criticism, but a peculiar fact about yourself that you may have heard before: Your speech pattern, monotone, and seemingly algorithmic style thought process makes you sound like a text-to-speech robot. I effin love it, sir. You’re a treasure [sic],” wrote another. “You’re heading a cabal with miners purposefully keeping the gas limits as low as possible to extort the maximum possible fees from users [sic],” expressed a third.

Ethereum co-founder donated over $1 billion in crypto to India’s COVID Relief Fund

It should be mentioned here that Ethereum was one of the first Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) in the crypto space, and it has gone on to become one of the most successful, with gains of over 778,000% since 2015, as per Cointelegraph. Last year in the month of May, Buterin donated over $1 billion in crypto to India’s COVID Relief Fund along with a range of other charities, reported Forbes. As per the report, he donated the amount by offloading massive amounts of dog-themed meme tokens that he was gifted by the creators of Shiba Inu coin (SHIB), Dogelon (ELON) and Akita Inu (AKITA). Buterin reportedly transferred 50 trillion SHIB tokens in a single donation worth $1.2 billion to the India COVID Relief Fund.
