Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin hit out at mainstream media Friday after an article appeared suggesting he thought the US National Security Agency (NSA) invented Bitcoin.
‘My Opinions Have Changed A Lot’
On June 15, UK tabloid publication Metro published what it described as a “discovery” that Buterin had made remarks about Bitcoin’s being created by the US National Security Agency (NSA).
The evidence it gathered came in the form of messages from popular forum Bitcointalk — but Buterin had written them over eight years ago in 2011. At that time, he was seventeen years old.
