Actor William Shatner Supports Ethereum Co-Founder
William Shatner, a Canadian actor and producer, made few tweets aimed at supporting the Ethereum network co-founder Vitalik Buterin.
The actor played the role of captain James Kirk in the famous American Star Trek series tweeted approving emoji to Buterin, which subsequently caused a heated debate.
In response to Shatner's tweet, a coder under the nickname “premine apologist” stated that the Ethereum co-founder is an ordinary scammer and it is impossible to develop decentralized technologies on his blockchain.
He added that if a person is a coder, then he or she should create his or her own blockchain to be 1000% sure of its decentralization. Otherwise, he advises to hide the money in the mattress as the only controlling power there is the community of bed bugs.
The coder did not stop on this and stated that Buterin is "dangerous". The actor replied that this point of view does not take into account the fact that the code must be verified by the audit company and approved by the consortium, in other case, it will not be accepted. That is why today there are ERC-20, ERC-721, etc.
The authors of the other comments were impressed with the knowledge of the actor who is already 87 years old regarding the crypto sphere and spoke out about this with compliments.
The actor has previously published statements about Ethereum and its founder, to which Buterin replied that he watched several episodes of the Star Trek series at a young age but, unfortunately, did not see first episodes where William Shatner was filmed.
As previously reported, the film company of actor Johnny Depp joined the blockchain project TaTaTu.
