Primarily known as the co-founder of Ethereum as well as Bitcoin Magazine, Vitalik Buterin is a programmer born in Russian which then emigrated to Canada at the age of six with his parents. He attended a private high school in Toronto ( Abelard School ) which he described as the most productive and interesting years of his life. He first came to know about Bitcoin from his father at the age of 17. He was awarded a bronze medal in the International Olympiad in Informatics in 2012. In 2013, he proposed Ethereum in his whitepaper.  He dropped out of University of Waterloo in 2014 when he received $100,000 from Thiel Fellowship and decided to work full-time on Ethereum.  At this time of writing, Ethereum is the second largest cryptocurrency in the world in terms of market capitalization.

Here are the top 10 quotes by Vitalik Buterin:

    The industrial revolution allowed us, for the first time, to start replacing human labour with machines.

    I generally support just about every secession attempt that comes along. If, in the future, there is that kind of a dispute in Ethereum, I'd definitely be quite happy to see Ethereum A go in one direction and Ethereum B go the other.

    Whereas most technologies tend to automate workers on the periphery doing menial tasks, blockchains automate away the center. Instead of putting the taxi driver out of a job, blockchain puts Uber out of a job and lets the taxi drivers work with the customer directly.

    The thing that I often ask startups on top of Ethereum is, 'Can you please tell me why using the Ethereum blockchain is better than using Excel?' And if they can come up with a good answer, that's when you know you've got something really interesting.

    When I was in grade five or six, I just remember quite a lot of people were always talking about me like I was some kind of math genius. And there were just so many moments when I realized, like, okay, why can't I just be like some normal person and go have a 75% average like everyone else.

    There is definitely a lot of banks that are interested in private blockchains. In some cases, they are happy with public blockchains as well. The opposition to just doing things on a public blockchain is definitely smaller than some of the strongest detractors think.

    I personally, generally, don't really feel much emotion if there's some problem and I'm actively solving it.

    Blockchains will drop search costs, causing a kind of decomposition that allows you to have markets of entities that are horizontally segregated and vertically segregated.

    I remember knowing, for a while, for a long time, that I was kind of abnormal in some sense.
