• Vitalik Buterin, the creator of Ethereum, will be immortalized in a new NFT collection

  • Vitalik Buterin, the creator of Ethereum, is one of the most attractive and charismatic figures in the cryptocurrency world. He will be honored with a non-fungible (NFT) collection called “The Vitaliks,” which will debut today, September 21, 2021.

    Buterin’s “special” vision will be “brought to the NFT space,” according to the project. There will be 6,969 Vitalik Buterin NFTs in the collection. Every item, like those in other collections, will be unique, with its own characteristics and trades.

    In this way, Ethereum’s creator will “forever live on the blockchain.” The collection is a tribute to Vitalik Buterin’s creativity and contribution to the creation of a community, according to the project’s creators.

    The project wants to create a Metaverse around “The Vitaliks” and their vision, in addition to the 6,969 NFTs in the collection. The items have different hats, hairs, skins, and other accessories, as seen below, making them unique.

    This collection can be compared to “CryptoPunks” or “Bored Ape Yacht Club” in that regard. Both have risen in popularity as a result of the recent NFT craze and provide users with value beyond the cost of minting or purchase. They confer status and esteem.

    Imitating those projects, “The Vitaliks” will also allow users to join a “prestigious Blockchain Community.” It will be accessible only to the holders of these NFTs.

    Vitalik Buterin, the creator of Ethereum, wants to help everyone.

    In its early stages, “The Vitaliks” published its goals and roadmap. On the former, the project will concentrate on creating a “vibrant community” and “strong brand recognition.” Each milestone will be commemorated with giveaways and other perks.

    According to the official website, the collection in honor of Ethereum’s creator will have a.069 adoption fee plus the gas cost, with a maximum adoption limit of 20 Vitaliks. As a result, the project aims to provide a fair distribution without “price tiers” to potential holders.

    To further strengthen the community, the project will create its own Merch Store and launch a governance token. The NFT collection sale proceeds will be used to fund the token’s liquidity. One of Vitalik Buterin’s most famous quotes was included on the official website for the NFT collection:

    Blockchains automate the center, whereas most technologies tend to automate workers on the periphery doing menial tasks. Instead of putting taxi drivers out of work, blockchain puts Uber out of business and allows taxi drivers to work directly with customers.

    After its launch, the collection honoring Ethereum creator Vitalik Buterin will be available on OpenSea.
