Vitalik rejects the rumors about him leaving the project Ethereum (ETH)


The magazine MIT Technology Review had the opportunity to interview Vitalik Buterin at the recently concluded Ethereum (ETH) developer conference which was hosted in Prague, Czech Republic. In the interview, Vitalik explained why the network can be truly decentralized only after it has stopped depending on him.

Buterin, 24, was the unofficial "CEO" of the Ethereum project since he proposed the creation of the network at the end of 2013. However, he revealed to MIT Technology Review that it was time for him to start fading into background to allow the community to grow to its full potential in a decentralized way.

Accusations of him coming out

From this interview, a Twitter user interpreted his words to vanish while Vitalik planned an exit strategy similar to that in which Dan Larimer left numerous cryptography and blockchain projects.

Dan Larimer developed Graphene's blockchain technology that powers BitShares and the Steem token. After starting BitShares in 2013, Larimer left the project to start Steemit. He left Steemit in March 2017. After leaving Steemit, Larimer joined as CTO and led successful crowdfunding to create EOS. He is still Chief Technology Officer of EOS.

The tweet that accused Vitalik of planning an exit strategy prompted him to respond by unmasking all theories according to which he will leave the project in a similar way to how Dan Larimer left BitShares and Steemit.

Are we really ready for Vitalik's withdrawal?

The question on the mind of many Ethereum enthusiasts and developers is whether the Ethereum network can survive without Vitalik. A Twitter user has responded to the above tweet by stating that our human psychology may not allow us to accept the departure of an inspiring leader. His exact tweet was as follows:

The real problem is interesting though. Are people really ready or do they really want decentralization?

It seems that they want leaders, even if this undermines the fundamental value of the system. They only want a price action.

Comparison with the Tron Project and Justin Sun

Tron's managing director, Justin Sun, had planned to take a position back in the Tron project after the Super Representatives were elected to handle all issues related to the network. However, in a move welcomed by many, Justin ran and won a place as one of the 27 Super Representatives on the Tron Network. Also communicate with the Tron community via Twitter on a daily basis.

Further analyzing Vitalik's response to the tweets that suggest he is leaving, we see that he already has a plan to continue contributing to the project.
