Vitalik Buterin

My activities these days largely revolve around decentralized technologies and cryptographic token systems, areas in which I have been participating actively as a developer, mathematician, armchair economist and writer for the past 3.5 years. My past projects include the pybitcointools library, my own fork of BitcoinJS, and a few contributions to SX and the "colored coins" project. Currently, my time is split between Bitcoin Magazine, Egora, KryptoKit and most importantly Ethereum, a next-generation cryptocurrency platform that allows you to make a potentially unlimited range of smart contracts, transaction types and decentralized applications on the blockchain.

My personal and academic interests include mathematics, cryptography, economics, philosophy, learning languages (started Mandarin a year ago) and exploring interesting places like the one that's the background of this screen.
