Leading altcoin Ether surpassed $3,000 for the first time at 1:38 a.m. UTC on the Bitstamp exchange. 

Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin now holds over $1 billion worth of ETH in his main address, which he disclosed back in October 2018. The 27-year-old visionary also owns some other tokens.             

Buterin has some other undisclosed addresses on top of this main one, but he claimed that they were "quite small."            

Nevertheless, his official wallet already makes him the second-youngest self-made billionaire (behind only Luminar Technologies CEO Austin Russell).

Russell replaced makeup mogul Kylie Jenner after she was removed by Forbes last year because of her family’s riches.
