Sergey Brin mines Ethereum. The co-founder of Google and one of the richest people on the planet with 52 billion dollars capital, announced it during a regular blockchain summit, taking place on the private island of Richard Branson.
Surely, it’s not the way for Brin to increase his fortune. According to the entrepreneur, it is rather a cognitive entertainment, which he deals with his ten-year-old son.
It must also be noted that at the same event, Brin commented positively on the blockchain ’s potential in whole, as well as the technology of "Zero Knowledge Proof," developed by the Zcash team. Vitalik Buterin intends to introduce this technology into the blockchain of Ethereum.
Recently, it has become known about the meeting of Vitalik Buterin and Eric Schmidt, a board chairman of Alphabet Holding, which owns Google Inc. Unfortunately, the subject and the results of the meeting were not disclosed. But even these few facts can make us think that Ethereum was chosen by Brin for home mining not occasionally.
