Vitalik Calls Saylor A Total Clown
Vitalik Buterin, the co-founder of Ethereum, referred to MicroStrategy’s CEO, Michael Saylor, as a “total clown” in a tweet this weekend. Buterin was replying to a post of a video clip of Saylor saying that the basis of securities law is biblical, not antiquated, and thus can be applied to cryptocurrencies.
“Why do maximalists keep picking heroes that turn out to be total clowns?” Buterin wrote on Twitter on Sunday.
In July, Michael Saylor argued in the Altcoin Daily interview that Ethereum and Cardano were securities. Saylor, a Bitcoin maximalist, believes that Bitcoin is the only cryptocurrency that qualifies as a commodity. His company, MicroStrategy, holds 129218 Bitcoins on its balance sheet.
