Meanwhile, meme coins, while entertaining and a new way to monetize attention, lack the lasting and inspiring potential of previous crypto trends. This sentiment, concerned crypto enthusiasts claim, is draining the energy out of the crypto community.

Vitalik steps in

In response, the Ethereum founder outlined several areas where he sees crypto making a meaningful impact on everyday life and expanding its reach today. He mentioned the importance of zero-knowledge technology in improving reputation, identity and credentials, which could revolutionize digital interactions. 

Buterin also pointed to significant improvements in peer-to-peer cross-border payments, noting that lower fees and better user experiences are making these services more viable in this cycle.
