Citing CNBC, Ethereum developer Vitalik Buterin has expressed concern about the potential danger of being dystopian if crypto is used incorrectly. For example, environmental issues, tax evasion, money laundering, and fraud.
Buterin pointed out, one example of this trend is the explosion in the value of NFT, or non-exchangeable tokens, such as the Bored Ape Yacht Club.
“The danger is that if you have $3 million worth of tokens, then this could be a different kind of gambling,” said Buterin.
Lately, Buterin has made a concerted effort to talk and try to ensure that Ethereum is still used for projects ranging from voting systems to urban planning.
“The only things that are built are things that are immediately profitable. If you don’t speak up, it’s often far from what’s actually best for the world,” he added.
This is not the first time Buterin has raised concerns about crypto assets. In 2018, Buterin warned investors about the volatility of the space, and told people that “traditional assets” are still a better place to keep money.
“Keep in mind, crypto assets are still a new and hyper-volatile asset class, and could drop to near zero at any time. So don’t put in too much money, if you can’t bear the loss,” he said.
