The start of a brand-new year offers an opportunity to assess the past and move forward with objective and function. And while other crypto characters began 2022 with bullish forecasts, Ethereum’s co-founder Vitalik Buterin chose to take a trip back in time, revisiting a few of the important things he forecasted over the last 10 years. He also shared what he found out and what he thinks about the topics today.
As a programmer, writer, and an active member of the cryptocurrency space given that its early years, Buterin has said, composed and forecasted a lot of things about the industry. Some he nailed, some he missed, and others really laughable. However for something, he does not shy away from admitting when he’s wrong about his forecasts.

Before releasing Ethereum in 2015, Buterin was bullish on Bitcoin: he even wrote a post in July 2013 describing the “internationality and censorship resistance” of Bitcoin and how the leading cryptocurrency can help protect the buying power and wealth of residents in nations like Iran, Argentina, China, and Africa.
