Ethereum Co-Founder Vitalik Buterin Meets Ex Argentine President

Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin recently had a private meeting with former Argentine President Mauricio Macri during a crypto event in Buenos Aires organized by web3 protocol The Graph. The event celebrated the first anniversary of the project’s mainnet launch. 

According to the tweet posted by Macri, the two discussed opportunities presented by crypto and blockchain. He described Ethereum as one of the “most innovative” decentralized technologies of the century. 

The Ethereum co-founder came to Buenos Aires unexpectedly, with details about his visit remaining scant. During a meeting with fintech and crypto entrepreneurs, Buterin reportedly spoke favorably about Proof-of-Humanity, an identity verification system for universal basic income developed by Santiago Siri.

Tomi Pierucci, head of tech disruptors vertical at JP Morgan, and Gómez Minujin, the banking giant’s senior country officer for Argentina, were also present at the event. JPMorgan promoted the meeting, according to local media reports.

The Graph’s Lorena Fabris described the Ethereum co-founder as “the Messi of crypto.” He told Forbes that the brand recognition of the protocol experienced a huge boost in Argentina because of Buterin.    

The 27-year-old crypto Buterin came to Argentina as part of his vacation. He has been touring Latin America for over three months. The Russian-Canadian programmer is now reportedly looking for a new destination.

Looking at the Ethereum price chart, ETH has fallen significantly during the ongoing session. If the current sentiment persists, we could see ETH drop to $3700. However, there is a chance that the price could see a marginal recovery and push back above $3800.
