Primarily known as the co-founder of Ethereum and the co-founder of Bitcoin Magazine, Vitalik Butarin is a prominent figure within the digital trading world with a strong social media presence.

He recently hinted at good things to come for Ethereum which has become one of the most-popular blockchain platforms primarily due to its rapid transaction speeds.

“I’m excited about on-going progress in the ETH state channel ecosystem and look forward to continuing to work with everyone contributing to the space.”

According to the crypto genius, future crypto platform goals will include censorship resistance, fraud robustness, transparency, robustness (staying online) and interoperability (the ability for computer systems to share information).

  • Nick Szabo – @NickSzabo4

He’s a man with a diverse range of interests and strong opinions about future crypto movements.

Highlighting the importance of decentralisation, he said:

“Centralised digital services, whether in traditional finance or in the crypto biz, are extremely vulnerable to local lawsuits and political pressure. They will be increasingly censored year by year.”

Andreas is a Greek-British Bitcoin advocate, crypto writer and host on the Let’s Talk Bitcoin podcast. In a Blockchain Not Bitcoin podcast recently posted to Twitter he explained how blockchain technology would not be successful without an “intrinsic valuable asset”.

He also looked ahead to the future of crypto stating:

“Maybe the role of cryptocurrencies is to offer a form of sound money for people to be able to save their wealth and accumulate capital for future generations.”

He explained how perhaps other types of instruments such as fiat or cryptocurrencies modelled after fiat with fractional reserve will be built.
