Ethereum Vitalik Buterin Urges Elon Musk To “Join Us” Amid Microsoft Criticism

Ethereum’s founder, Vitalik Buterin, has made a surprising proposal to Elon Musk, the CEO of X Corp. and Tesla, to collaborate with him on the Ethereum project. The offer came in response to a post by Musk on X, where he expressed his frustration with Microsoft’s account creation feature on PC laptops.

Musk wrote on Feb 26 that Microsoft forces users to create a Microsoft account before using their laptops and warned about the dangers of giving AI access to one’s computer. He called the feature “messed up”.

Buterin replied to Musk’s post on Feb 27, saying: “It would be amazing to have you join us and become a desktop Linux enjoyer!”

This remark sparked a lot of excitement among crypto enthusiasts, who speculated about the possible implications of Musk joining the Ethereum Foundation.

Ethereum is one of the leading platforms for decentralized applications and smart contracts and has been undergoing significant upgrades to improve its scalability, security, and efficiency.

Ethereum Price Rises As Dencun Upgrade Approaches

While Musk has not responded to Buterin’s invitation yet, Ethereum’s price has risen, reaching over $3200 as of press time. The token has increased by 4.20% in the last 24 hours, and its market cap and trading volume have also grown by 68.97% and 4.18%, respectively.

Ethereum’s momentum is partly driven by the anticipation of the Dencun upgrade, which is expected to be deployed on the Mainnet soon. The upgrade will introduce several improvements to the Ethereum network, such as reducing gas fees, increasing transaction throughput, and enhancing security.

Meanwhile, Doge Designer, a UX/UI Designer at Dogecoin, also chimed in on Musk’s post, mocking Microsoft’s account creation feature with a humorous image. Elon Musk frequently endorses Dogecoin, a popular meme-based cryptocurrency, on social media.
