The poll which was deleted several hours later received more than 2,300 votes with nearly 60 percent respondents saying he should not take the position while 40 percent said he should.

Buterin, who has a massive stake in developing the upcoming Proof-of-stake protocol, Casper and Sharding is unlikely to abandon his groundbreaking work at Ethereum to pursue an opportunity with Google, sources say.

Although Buterin did not reveal what the job offer entailed, many speculate that Google may be trying to recruit Buterin to work on its Blockchain distributed digital ledger that would enable third parties to post and verify transactions, through Google Cloud.
