Cryptocurrency Twitter Account to Follow No. 1: Vitalik Buterin

Even though he is just 23 years old, Buterin has accomplished a lot in just a short time.

He proposed the idea for Ethereum in 2013, a blockchain-based platform that allows smart contracts to operate. Smart contracts are self-executing deals between two parties that have agreed to specific terms.

And he dropped out of the University of Waterloo in 2014 when he received the Thiel Fellowship for $100,000.

The Thiel Fellowship was created to provide guidance on entrepreneurship and allow individuals to drop out of school to pursue other work.

After leaving Waterloo, Buterin went on to work on Ethereum full time.

From just an idea in 2013, the Ethereum coin now has a $66 billion market cap.
