There are plenty of juicy rumors on Main Street, in forums, and in the media that Goldman Sachs is the puppet master behind the creation, organization and launch of Ethereum.
Is this true?
Will you still invest in Ethereum if you find out that Ethereum is the product of Goldman Sachs?
Let’s find out, because I want to know the truth as well before I put any money into Ethereum.
In this 3rd video interview with Vitalik Buterin (one of the co-founders of Ethereum (ETH)) at the first Texas Bitcoin Conference held in south Austin, we ask Vitalik for the truth about Goldman Sachs’ involvement with Ethereum.
Here is video interview (3 of 6) with Vitalik conducted by myself, Leon Fu, and James D’Angelo from the World Bitcoin Network:
Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies represent freedom.
They were designed to take power away from the 1% on Wall Street and give it back to the 99% of the people on Main Street.
Outside of Wall Street, Goldman Sachs is viewed by the public as the symbol of power, criminal banksters, corruption, greed, illegal trading, etc. and everything else that is wrong with our current financial system.
Therefore, many potential investors are concerned about the rumors about Goldman Sachs and Ethereum.
I hope these series of videos about Ethereum will help you make a better and informed decision whether or not to invest in Ethereum.
I personally would not invest in Ethereum if it was a product of Goldman Sachs.
On the other hand, I do not care if former Goldman Sachs’ employees are involved or working inside of Ethereum because that lets me know that Ethereum has qualified people on their team.
Anyone who works at Goldman Sachs is not going to be stupid and was probably very good at what they do, so I’m definitely in favor of having them on the Ethereum team so they can get the job done.
When I invest in Ethereum, I want the best people on the team not a bunch of idiots.
Here is the interview we did with Vitalik:
Tai Zen: What’s up guys? This is Tai Zen again with prisonorfreedom.com.
It is a blog where we talk about the tools, the techniques, and the strategies and the technologies that is available to help people find freedom in their life.
And with us here today is James D’Angelo from the World Bitcoin Network, and we also have here Vitalik, with the Ethereum project.
These are some of the guys that is in the forefront of helping people find freedom when it comes to the currency world.
How old are you Vitalik?
Vitalik Buterin: I just turned 20, month ago.
James D’Angelo: Congratulations!
Tai Zen: Okay, good job! Hey, is it /vay’talik/ or /vita’lik/?
Vitalik Buterin: /vay’talik/
Tai Zen: /vay’talik/ Okay. And last name, Buterin?
Vitalik Buterin: Yeah.
Tai Zen: Now, another question that comes to mind for new potential investors is that, you have this big team, big staff and on your team, supposedly there are two former Goldman Sachs employees, so, can we address that issue? Because some people think that you work for Goldman Sachs.
Can you clarify that?
Vitalik Buterin: So, in terms of the Goldman Sachs, the extent of our involvement with Goldman Sachs is that, we have two people on our team who at one point, used to work with Goldman Sachs.
Tai Zen: Okay. Former employees?
Vitalik Buterin: Yes. Former employees. That is it. Ethereum is certified 100% new world order-free.
Tai Zen: Okay. Me personally, I do not have a problem if somebody works at Goldman Sachs, because that lets me know that they were very qualified at what they were doing. And the two guys that you have, one is supposed to be a hedge fund manager, and one is supposed to be a cryptographer correct?
Vitalik Buterin: I believe so. One is definitely a hedge fund manager. The other one is either cryptographer or one of our business people.
James D’Angelo: It’s dolphin safe too, I think.
Tai Zen: Thanks for spending time with James D’Angelo from the World Bitcoin Network and myself. We wish you the great luck.
Vitalik Buterin: Thank you.
James D’Angelo: Thanks Tai for putting it all together.
Tai Zen: All right guys, thanks for joining us and what I will do is I will get Vitalik’s Bitcoin address and leave it at the bottom of this video, and James D’Angelo also.
