Vitalik Buterin, the founder of Ethereum, has secretly donated 500 Ether tokens to the Dogecoin Foundation. The donated coins are estimated to be worth $1 million. The news of Buterin’s donation was shared on Twitter by Dogecoin investor Matt Wallace, and a transaction to this effect was recorded on Ethereum’s network, as shown on Etherscan.io.
The 28-year-old crypto billionaire’s donation comes at a critical time for the crypto community, which is still reeling from the ramifications of the Terra Luna crash. The Dogecoin Foundation, which was originally founded in 2014, was relaunched in August 2021 after DOGE exploded in popularity and value.
Even though he has not publicly commented about the donation, it is worth noting that Buterin has been involved with Dogecoin since last year, and he serves on the Foundation’s advisory board.
