Vitalik wins software innovation award

In my opinion, market pegged assets is a more worthy invention in itself then putting a scripting language on a blockchain, but these guys think otherwise:

Someone pointed out to me that Ethereum was founded by a lot of big names in crypto where Dan really had no presence.  They've been able to ride on that going forward.

I'm not saying our marketing was that great, but when you have outgoing personalities in the crytpoworld on your board then you have automagical marketing going forward without even needing to market explicitly.

Nobody wants to give him some credit? He and his guys made the first complete, clear specification for a scriptable blockchain.

Good for Vitalik, he certainly deserves this honour. Hopefully Dan gets consideration next time.

Before his software is even released officially it wins the award?
I'm not against him winning but it's a bit soon.

I agree with this. 

I do think Vitalik is very deserving.  But hype/advertising/media presence is playing at least as much of a role in this award as technical achievements.


It is similar to how in baseball, they give out the gold glove awards, but instead of actually giving them to the best defenders, they give them to the most famous players that aren't outright terrible at defense.  So all the great defense, no offense guys get passed over, and they give the award to someone who is great at offense (and thus famous) and sortof above average at defense.

You guys are right on. Or how about President Obama getting a Nobel Peace Prize just after he was elected president? :)

Yes.


I suppose we need to make a meme where we say "Thanks Vitalik" any time anything bad happens in crypto land. :P

Because this is sufficient for anyone to re-implement the exact protocol. It is "as good as software" as far as proving it is possible.
