An economist of NYU and an opponent of crypto Nouriel Roubini, famous by predicting the financial crisis in 2008 and called Dr. Doom, recently started a heated argument in Twitter with Vitalik Buterin. The economist accused Vitalik and Joe Lublin of expropriating 75 percent of ETH in pre-mining.

Following the request to reveal his ETH balance, Vitalik did so by providing an EtherScan page. At a close examination, one can see that Vitalik is in possession of slightly over 365,000 ETH coins (worth around $74 mln) and also holds OmiseGo tokens of around $100,000 worth. The address Buterin provided shows his biggest trades. As for other address he has, Vitalik stated that they are small and chose not to disclose them.
