Vitalik Buterin is known first and foremost as the creator of Ethereum, but he’s also famous for his disdain of centralized exchanges. After previously wishing that centralized exchanges would all “burn in hell”, now Buterin is coming to their defense.
In an exposition reminding the crypto community about the pillars of the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, Buterin tackles one of the most controversial issue dominating crypto at the moment — Craig Wright and his brainchild Bitcoin SV.
When it comes to Craig Wright, however, who has threatened members of the crypto ecosystem with lawsuits for calling him out as a fraud, all bets are off. Buterin would much rather watch Wright burn than his other nemesis – centralized exchanges.
The three major crypto exchanges that have delisted BSV so far include Binance, ShapeShift, and Kraken. Buterin explored the potential role of censorship in all of these cases, ultimately reaching various conclusions.
