Dmitry Buterin | Layer Zero
Dmitry Buterin joins David for the premiere of Layer Zero, a new Bankless podcast that explores the human side of Ethereum. Beneath the technological innovation and socioeconomic disruption happening in the DeFi space, there are human beings – really interesting, thoughtful, passionate human beings. Layer Zero is at the bottom of the economic stack: the people.
For the debut episode, it only made sense to bring on Dmitry, father of Ethereum founder Vitalik. Topics include Vitalik’s youth, Soviet Russia, and universal consciousness, but they don’t stop there. How often does Dmitry check ETH Price? What’s his workout routine? Tune in and find out.
