Tom Brady, an American football quarterback for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers of the National Football League, has praised Ethereum co-founder, Vitalik Buterin, for his impact on the development of the crypto industry.
It can be recalled that Buterin claimed not to know who Brady is after he was taunted by many over his physical appearance on TIME Magazine. Ethereum co-founder shared the comment of a user, who wrote, “Anyone else think he looks like if Tom Brady did meth?”
In response to this funny comment, Buterin said, “I didn’t even know who Tom Brady is, had to ask people around me. My best guess was that he was the actor from Mission Impossible.”

Vitalik Buterin Says Crypto Is Becoming Right-Leaning Thing
While speaking with TIME Magazine, Buterin expressed his concern over the future of the fast-growing crypto industry.
According to Ethereum co-founder, the crypto ecosystem will have to lose some of its potentials before the asset class could be considered a right-leaning thing. He said failure to become a right-leaning thing will turn it to prey in the hands of dictatorial governments.
Vitalik Buterin noted:
“There are definitely signs that are making it seem like crypto is on the verge of becoming a right-leaning thing. If it does happen, we’ll sacrifice a lot of the potential it has to offer.”
