On top of getting featured in the highly-acclaimed “100 Most Influential People List” of Time Magazine this 2021, Ethereum network’s head figure, Vitalik Buterin, also witnessed Ether (ETH) climb back up to more than $3,600 apiece.
Joining Buterin in the list of the top innovators living in the world today are Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk, pop star icon Billie Ellish, Tennis sensation Naomi Osaka, and many more remarkable names.
In his section within the particular magazine feature, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian praised Buterin for successfully elevating the Ethereum network’s market capitalization to over $400 billion, all the while furthering innovations regarding non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and decentralized applications (DApps).
According to Ohanian, no individual alone could have propelled Ethereum to such great heights. However, Buterin was the one to get the engine started and kept on revolutionizing the industry.
As briefly touched upon earlier, ETH experienced a brief yet significant uptick from the news of Buterin cracking the illustrious Time Magazine feature. Yesterday, ETH rallied by over 6% to return above $3,600 – albeit subsiding immediately to settle at about $3,500.
Furthermore, Ethereum was also considered the top gainer among the top ten cryptos in the market today, followed by Cardano’s 3.8% and Binance Coin’s 1% increase, respectively.
