The Canadian actor and producer, eighty-seven year old William Shatner, has just released some mysterious tweets that support the creator of ethereum Vitalik Buterin.
Shatner, a popular figure for his role in the Star Trek TV series in the first place tweeted a "thumb up" in Buterin Wednesday, which was quick to turn into a discussion thread.
In an answer to Shatner's tweet, a programmer called "pre-eminent apologist" He said on Buterin, "He is a true scammer", adding that it is not possible to develop decentralized technology on ethereum.
For that, Shatner continued to defend the blockchain network, say:
"Then, as a programmer, develop your blockchain technology in which you can be sure at 1000% of decentralization or push money into a mattress, I've heard it is only overseen by the insect community."
Later in the thread, the coder further described Buterin as "dangerous". Shatner replied:
"His views do not take into account the fact that the code needs to be checked by an auditing firm and approved by the consortium or is not accepted, and thinks it exists in a bubble, which is why we have ERC-20, ERC-721 .. ERC-1701 "
Some other comments on the thread seemed to be largely impressed by Shatner's understanding of the cryptic world and by the fact that he was exposing his opinions out there.
One tweeted: "OMG William Shatner is listing the ERC standards to teach a cryptic troll."
This is not the first time that Shatner has spoken about blockchain and cryptocurrency on Twitter. In a Tweet on ethereum and Buterin at the beginning of this week, he said:
"@BobSummerwill the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance? Are we absolutely sure that @Valikobuterin is not a Star Wars fan? I have heard rumors … some have been started by myself!"
Shatner was teleported to cryptographic space for the first time last year, when he publicly approved token sales. Then, in June 2018, the actor announced that he represented Solar Alliance, an alternative energy developer who was planning to build a solar-powered bitcoin mining facility in Illinois.
