  • Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin tweeted a picture
    of what seemed to be a Google job offer first
  • Many have speculated that Google was trying to hire
    Buterin for a secret cryptocurrency project.
  • Buterin says a Google representative tried to hire
    he at an intern's salary, most likely because he matched the
    employment profile of the company

In May, the founder of the Etherum cryptocurrency project, Vitalik
he asked on Twitter
if he should stop working for ethereum

The tweet contained what appeared to be a Google job offer
that said: "I hope you are well and enjoy the weekend!
Google makes sense to you now or in the near future. "

The tweet of Buterin was followed by increasing speculation
Google may be interested in recruiting the 24-year-old founder
for a secret cryptocurrency project.

It turns out, however, that this was not exactly the case.

In a recent fireplace conversation at an event in San Francisco,
Forbes reported
that Buterin said that Google had contacted
him, but that was not for a high profile position.

"I hope we all realize that it was a joke
The Google person sent me an email, most likely because some machines
the learning algorithm analyzed my GitHub and I saw that I had some
highest score in the International Olympics "
Buterin said.
"Apparently, I have adapted the projects like a big one
candidate to take an internal salary. "

While Google pays its interns relatively well, it is
unlikely it would have been a convincing offer for Buterin,

whose current net worth is estimated at between $ 100 million a
$ 200 million.
