Head Writer at Bitcoin
Vitalik is a computer science student at the University of Waterloo, but is currently taking time off to pursue Bitcoin-related projects in Europe. His interests are diverse, ranging from computer science to economics to linguistics, and he firmly believes in the power of the internet, from P2P networks to social networking to Bitcoin, to lay the foundation for a new, bottom-up, 21st century information economy.
He has been a member of the Bitcoin community since March 2011 working on small-scale efforts like the Bitcoin Weekly, and now hopes to see being the chief writer for the Bitcoin Magazine become his first professional employment.
Vitalik developed the Bitcoin private key secret sharing application btckeysplit, the pybitcointools library, and some code for the BitcoinX “colored coins” project, as well as a few others. Outside of the Bitcoin world, he wrote AI Challenges, a set of problems inspired by Sebastian Thrun’s course to help you learn AI programming.
