Popular Canadian actor, William Shatner has voiced out in support for Vitalik Buterin, the Ethereum founder on social media platform. Unlike other times when the young and prominent crypto personality engaged in conflicts and disputes on Twitter, this time in his absence the well known producer attempted to defeat him from series of tweets.
The veteran actor that came into prominence by featuring in Star Expedition TELEVISION collection tweeted upholding the competence of the ethereum maker. In a ”thumbs up” tweet to Buterin, Shatner received several other followed-up tweets from Twitterati. A Twitter user, dubbed as, “premine apologist” who is a programmer said, “He’s [Vitalik Buterin] an actual scammer”. He reprimanded the ethereum blockchain stating that no decentralised technology can be developed on the blockchain platform.
To this tweet, Shatner instantly retaliated saying, ”Then as a programmer– go establish your own blockchain modern technology where you can be 1000% certain of decentralization. Or shove money in a cushion. I hear that’s just managed by the bed bug neighborhood.”
In continuation to the thread, later a coder has described Vitalik as ‘‘unsafe.” The actor again came to his defence tweeting, “His viewpoints do not think about the truth that the code needs to be audited by a bookkeeping firm as well as accepted by consortium or it does not obtain approved. He assumes it exists in a bubble. That’s why we have ERC-20, ERC-721 … ERC-1701″
Earlier that day, on Twitter he created ”@BobSummerwill the Venture Ethereum Partnership? Are we absolutely certain @VitalikButerin isn’t a Star Wars fan? I have actually heard rumors … some begun by myself!”
Such enthusiasm and inclination towards the crypto world from the eighty eight year old actor left his followers in awe. One of the fans on the social platform posted, “OMG William Shatner is listing ERC standards in order to coach a crypto giant.”
However, the Twitter posts of Shatner is not an unprecedented event. Previously, he has utilised the social media site to discuss on digital currency and its underlying blockchain technology. Last year, with his explicit support to token sales, he took his first step into the crypto space. Also, in 2016 he associated with the Solar Alliance project meant as an alternative power programmer for bringing up Illinois, a bitcoin mining centre powered by solar energy.
