Dmitry Buterin has taken to Twitter to say that the fact of his son Vitalik joining the board of Dogecoin may actually “lead to Dogecoin becoming a better coin”.
He specified that what his son is doing in this case is handling the challenges rather than denying them. He tweeted this in response to critics regarding Vitalik's decision to officially side with Doge.
Vitalik like to has fun. what's wrong with fun? what if this fun leads to Dogecoin becoming a better bitcoin, dealing with the challenges instead of denying them?— Dmitry ButΞrin (@BlockGeekDima) August 19, 2021
The advisory board of Dogecoin, aside from Ethereum co-founder, now also has an associate of Elon Musk and head of his family office Jared Birchall. He is also the CEO of Neuralink.
