Steven Nerayoff accused Vitalik Buterin of plagiarism and borrowing his ideas and inventions. Nerayoff questioned the creative intelligence of the current Ethereum leadership and stated that Buterin never invented anything significant and was the only reason why the network is not able to scale properly.
“Did Vitalik come up with anything? No, he didn’t do anything. He slept on my couch and copied my inventions. Ethereum has never scaled. I was the one who created the utility token, Utility Tokens, and came up with the ICO. Vitalik and Joseph Lubin only sabotaged the cryptocurrency. Their goal was simply to launch hundreds or thousands of fraudulent ICOs and rob people,” Nerayoff wrote on his blog.
Nerayoff believes everyone in the Ethereum ecosystem would be in much better shape if Gavin Wood and Charles Hoskinson stayed on Ethereum and Vitalik Buterin and Joseph Lubin left. Because the last two are useless and harmful, and the first two are brilliant and productive.
Stephen Nerayoff publicly accused Vitalik Buterin and Joseph Lubin of fraudulent activity larger than the collapse of the FTX cryptocurrency exchange earlier this month. Nerayoff also believes that the former administration of the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) was corrupt even at the initial launch of the network.
