Vitalik discloses holdings in Twitter beef: 365,003 ETH in Vitalik's wallet

Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin has revealed how much Ether he holds. In a discussion with NYU economist Nouriel Roubini, Buterin shared his Ethereum address.

Roubini, who predicted the 2008 financial crisis and goes by the nickname 'Docter Doom', accused Vitalik and Ethereum co-founder Joe Lubin of stealing 75% of the Ether 'and became instant billionaires of fake wealth'. According to Roubini, Vitalik en Lubin were the ring-leaders of the 'criminal pre-mining sale/scam that created Ether'.

Vitalik addressed the allegations by stating that he personally 'never held more than 0,9% ETH, and my net worth never came close to $1b.' He added that he is pretty sure 'there are no criminal laws against pre-mining'.

He then shared his Ethereum address, disclosing his holdings. The wallet of Vitalik contains 365,003 Ether, worth over $73 million at the time of writing.

The wallet also contains 32,000 OmiseGo, worth $100,000 and several other ERC 20 tokens, with a total worth of about $1500.
