It has garnered amusing responses from market participants such as TRON founder Justin Sun.
ethereum maker Vitalik Buterin added to his Twitter bio the Japanese inscription of his name, pronounced “bu-tarin”. However, when translated into English, the Japanese inscription literally means “pig forest,” or “dolphin forest” from a Chinese point of view.
Why? @VitalikbuterinWhat is the Chinese name of? I feel weird I have a better name for that.— Hey Justin Sun (@justinsuntron) 10 June 2022
It has garnered amusing responses from market participants such as the TRON founder justin hearwho commented that it sounded strange and jokingly teased a better name for the ETH co-founder, which literally meant “Kashiwabayashi” in Japanese and “Berlin” in Chinese.
A scroll through Vitalik Buterin’s Twitter feed reveals what might have prompted the ETH creator to add the Japanese pronunciation of his name, Buterin, to his Twitter bio. Buterin wrote in a recent tweet: “Please stop using ‘real name’ to refer to your passport name. Your government doesn’t need to define who you really are. If you day- Conversations that use a different name every day, that’s your real name. ‘Passport name,’ ‘legal name,’ and ‘slave name’ being edgy are all right.”
There was a funny reaction from Twitter followers on this. A Twitter follower replied, “Fiat name,” posting a funny GIF image.
Ethereum was founded in 2014 by Vitalik Buterin and several developers, most notably Charles Hoskinson (Cardano founder) and Joseph Lubin. Last August, the Ethereum co-founder joined the board of the relaunched Dogecoin Foundation.
Despite co-founding the second largest blockchain and being at the forefront of the cryptocurrency revolution, Buterin regularly faces criticism. Most of their opponents complained about Ethereum’s scalability concerns and persistent delays.
Following the change to an earlier date, ETH developers anticipate a full transition to Ethereum for proof of stake will occur later in the year. Ethereum’s Kiln and Ropsten testnet also merged successfully, although some issues were reported.
