Ethereum Founder Appeals To Crowd In Paris To ‘Move Beyond DeFi’

Vitalik Buterin, the founder of Ethereum has high aspirations for the network’s uses for social good that go on the far side of the fast financial gains of DeFi investing.

In an unexpectedly rip-roaring keynote at Paris’s EthCC conference, Ethereum founder Vitalik Buterin mentioned that Ethereum is required to look beyond the unmanaged, unpredictable financial movement called DeFi (decentralized finance). Notably, his remarks referred to everything from complex blockchain-based login mechanisms to humiliating social media token-shilling.

In a slide, he mentioned,

“Being defined by DeFi is better than being defined by nothing. But it needs to go further.”

Subsequent to a short cross-legged meditation on stage, Buterin stood up on the stage and said,

“Ethereum must be socially useful as well as financially beneficial, drawing a cheery response from an audience thrumming with DeFi entrepreneurs, investors and developers.“

Meditating on the dream of an Ethereum network that is worthwhile to everyone, he put forward a couple of alternative propositions about the technology that he felt should justify more attention. One interesting idea he presented was “retroactive funding,” in which developers constructively build public infrastructure for free and then are remunerated for it when it yields dividends. He elucidated that such an undertaking would permit Ethereum projects to grow as a “public good.”

His comprehensive point was that ETH developers need to take responsibility for the disagreeable actions of a couple of vocal shills in the domain. For instance, when attendees laughed at his reference to the rapid increase of distrustful Covid-related tokens in the wake of Covid-19 outbreak, he joked in an ominous way,

“We’re not the problem—the problem is other people.”
