Two intellectuals, Vitalik Buterin (Creator of Ethereum), and Eric Weinstein (PhD, scientist, and Managing Director at Thiel Capital), recently sat down on The Portal to discuss Mr. Buterin's attitude towards the "classic" economics theory.

Libertarianism and Diversity

When both individuals discussed libertarianism, Vitalik Buterin said that libertarians mostly belong to two large groups characterized as either a "leave me alone'" or "conquer the world" approach. This divergence can be extrapolated into cryptocurrencies in terms of their mass adoption.

Mr. Buterin highlighted that there are participants within the crypto community that are assured that fiat currencies will be destroyed and replaced by Bitcoin (BTC). In general, Mr. Buterin estimated that the prospects of any "short-term disruption" for the sake of some "nebulous long-term gain" is skeptical. He said:

I'm definitely not in the camp that actively relishes that fiat currencies will be destroyed. 

Mr. Buterin added that several members within the Bitcoin community share this belief.

Peaceful Coexistence

Vitalik Buterin predicts that Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies will coexist with fiat money and balance the disadvantages of the classic monetary system. He also added that cryptocurrencies will provide "checks and balances" against a government monopoly on "issuing money" rather than "replacing it entirely".

Mr. Buterin is well-known as a champion of pluralism in future world of cryptocurrency. He is sure that different communities will defend their views on its development.
