    10 days ago it was a big deal that Vitalik Buterin had crossed $1 billion for the first time. He's technically worth $21 billion at this moment. AKA the 67th richest person in the world.

    Vitalik's $21 billion net worth is made up of:

    • $1.3 billion thanks to his 333,000 Ether
    • $18.5 billion thanks to his 505 billion SHIB
    • $920 million thanks to his 50 billion AKITA
    • $375 million thanks to his 500 billion Dogelon

    Plus a couple dozen random, mostly-dog-themed, alt-coins.

    At $21 billion, according to our count of the 100 richest people in the world, Vitalik's current rank is: 67

    At $21 billion, Vitalik is just $1 billion away from Steve Jobs' widow Laurene Powell Jobs. He's $1 billion richer than Dietrich Mateschitz, the founder of Red Bull.

    There are literally 41 pages of random, mostly-dog-themed, alt-coins now sitting in Vitalik's account. The vast majority are worth a couple bucks or less.

        Vitalik Buterin owns around 333,000 Ethereum coins. As of this writing, a single Ether coin will cost you around $4,100. So Vitalik's stash of 333,000 are officially worth…

        $1.4 billion

        Yet that's not the number you see right now on Vitalik's public wallet.

        Here's a screenshot of the public wallet:

        $16.3 billion…

        Where's that other $15 billion coming from? This is a truly insane story that only makes sense in the completely bonkers crypto world.

        According to a story first reported by the website, roughly $14 billion if Vitalik's wealth came in the form of A GIFT. The gift was given to him by the creators of a dogecoin knockoff called Shiba Inu, aka "SHIB."

        Buterin has nothing to do with SHIB and he had no idea about the gift.

        Last month the creators of SHIB released a white paper, which they called a "woofpaper". In the woofpaper they revealed that they sent 50% of all SHIB, roughly 505 billion coins, to Vitalik's wallet without his knowledge.

        At the time they made the transfer, 505 billion SHIB were worth around $8.6 million thanks to it's price of $0.000000017.

        The value of SHIB has increased more than 700% in the last week alone. It increased nearly 4,000% the week of 4/20. The price roughly doubled in the time I began writing this article on Sunday afternoon, May 9 and Monday morning, May 10.

        When you include Vitalik's holdings, SHIB is the 12th-largest cryptocurrency in the world.

        Vitalik's unwittingly gifted collection of 505 billion SHIB are worth…

        $14 billion

        It appears as though a bunch of other stunt coins have begun gifting Vitalik huge shares of coins as well. As of this writing, I count dozens of random coins in Vitalik's wallet. His third-largest holding (after Ether and SHIB) is a coin called Akita Inu. As of this writing, Vitalik owns $700m worth of AKITA. He also owns $265 million worth of Dogelon and $21 million of HuskyToken.

        When you combine all of these holdings, Vitalik Buterin's net worth is…

        $16.3 billion

        At $16.3 billion net worth, according to our list of the richest people in the world, Vitalik Buterin currently ranks at…105

            Vitalik Buterin, 27, reached billionaire status after digital currency Ethereum surged above a $3,000 price mark Monday.  

            The celebrity crypto guru co-founded Ethereum - the second biggest cryptocurrency after Bitcoin - in 2015.

            Ethereum has attracted a huge following in the world of decentralized finance, thanks to its faster transaction times when compared to that of Bitcoin.

            He holds 333,000 Ether coins - which is now worth an astonishing $1.029 billion.  

            In 2013, the writer and programmer dropped out of college and later became one of eight co-founders of Ethereum.

            At the time of writing, his visionary project boasts a huge market cap of about $350 billion, which is bigger than The Bank of America, the country's second largest bank. 

            Buterin, who now lives in Singapore, was born in 1994 in a small Russian town called Kolomna, located around 60 miles away from Moscow.

            Aged 4, his family moved to Canada to search for better job opportunities. 

            They later gifted him his first computer. But instead of playing video games like most kids, he developed a fascination with the spreadsheets on Microsoft Excel. 

            At school the mathematical whizz kid was a bit too clever for his peers. In third grade he was placed in a program for the gifted and talented. 

            According to former peers, he had the ability to add three digit numbers in his head twice as fast as the average human being.  

            With his parents' blessing, Vitalik dropped out of the University of Waterloo in 2013 and travelled the world to meet crypto enthusiasts in other countries. 

             His father, who ran a small software startup, introduced him to bitcoin in 2011. 

            In an interview with Wired, Buterin said: 'I saw everything to do with either government regulation or corporate control as just being plain evil. 

            'And I assumed that people in those institutions were kind of like Mr. Burns (in The Simpsons), sitting behind their desks saying, 'Excellent. How can I screw a thousand people over this time?'
