Cryptocurrency has made the Canadian investor a billionaire.
Vitalik Buterin, 27, became a billionaire when Ethereum surpassed $ 3,000 earlier this week. Daily mail reported.
Buterin reportedly owns 333,000 Ether coins. He now lives in Singapore and was born in Kolomna, a Russian town near Moscow. The price has gone even further since Buterin first joined the exclusive billionaire club.
His family moved to Canada, where he grew up in Toronto before studying at the University of Waterloo. Buterin dropped out of the program after receiving a large grant and is one of the co-authors of Ethereum.
His father introduced him to Bitcoin in 2011.
Buterin was 19 years old when he came up with the Ethereum white paper design. It was funded in 2014 and launched in 2016 with the delivery of 72 million Ether coins.
