Vitalik Buterin

My activities these days largely revolve around Bitcoin and cryptocurrency, areas in which I have been participating actively as a developer, mathematician, armchair economist and writer for the past three 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 recently) and exploring interesting places like the one that's the background of this screen.
