Vitalik Buterin gives zero Fs about what you think he should wear. In fact, he is THE fashion icon of our time. While many of us don’t understand the hotness, a lot of others certainly do.  

De University of Ethereum (UETH) is a decentralized global educational platform. UETH aims for mass adoption of the Ethereum network.

They recently co-hosted “Ethereum – a New Era,” one of the last Ethereum events before the Merge.

1,400 attendees gathered in San Francisco to gain insights at the conference.

Vitalik Buterin is the Co-Founder of Ethereum. At the said event, he burst onto the scene in a green dinosaur costume. Ergo, he continues his reign as the king of Haute Costumery.

Vitalik Buterin as a dinosaur

Yes, Buterin said things like, “After the Merge, Ethereum’s top priority is to increase the Ethereum Blockchain scalability. EIP-4844 (also known as proto-danksharding) will be the biggest EIP after the merge.”

But really, do we care? No. Because we are all way too impressed by his flawless fashion statements. Dinosaur hotness is top-tier heat in 2022. Keep up, okay.

Shiba Inu Jammies

The dinosaur costume was just the latest interation in a long line of stellar fashion forays. Previously, Buterin turned up to EthDenver in Shiba Inu pyjamas. Many speculated that he was low-key promoting SHIB with the colorful jimmy jammies.

Let’s add into the fashion skirmish that SHIB holders have often wondered if Buterin is Ryoshi, the anonymous creator of Shiba Inu. Buterin knows very well he is adding fuel to the fire with his fluffy SHIB fashion statement.

Shiba Inu jammies are not the only outfit he was sporting at conferences.

Bear Costume

Vitalik has also made an appearance in a bear costume. Whether he was declaring the bear market, or invoking the crypto winter is very much the fodder for crypto gossip.

Buterin has made comments to mainstream news outlets as to how bear markets can help crypto in the long term.

“The people who are deep into crypto, and especially building things, a lot of them welcome a bear market. They welcome the bear market because when there are these long periods of prices moving up by huge amounts like it does – it does obviously make a lot of people happy – but it does also tend to invite a lot of very short-term speculative attention. The winters are the time when a lot of those applications fall away and you can see which projects are actually long-term sustainable, like both in their models and in their teams and their people.”

Vitalik Buterin: Highly Cultured

Buterin has never been scared to get cultural with his outfits, and it gets high praise from enthusiasts. “I love that Vitalik always looks like instead of choosing outfits at the start of his day, he’s choosing what skin to wear in VR chat lol.”

The prince of hotness is also not scared of a memey T-Shirt either. Many of us would like a hard fork from Buterin.

And let’s not forget the bags he accumulates on the way. His totes always look like he has raided a Catholic girls’ primary school lost property bin. And we are all inspired. Crypto bros, we know you want one of these, stop resisting. You know those suits make you look like a Ken Doll on pharmaceuticals.

While people fangirl over Vitalik-inspired fashion, their offerings (below) aren’t as interesting as the real deal.

Buterin is such a fashion icon right now, that other alphas are starting to feel the heat. They are being ragged on for their fashion choices. I think the phrase that applies is “as edgy as a plain.”

The only choice is to keep up with the Prince of prints. Below, we have some fashion savagery and then an alternative offering from the Prince of fashion.

Below, we see Buterin, looking iconic yet again. Vitalik looks like ETH if ETH was a person.

Vitalik Buterin and Holiday Fashion, Sweetie

Vitalik’s holiday outfits are right on point. So much so, that Richard on the right is being called a Beta. Wow, that’s in bullying territory. Beta fashion? Wow. Richard, we all wish you resilience, okay?

Vitalik Buterin fashion choice

And then, to the footwear. It is comfy, it’s sandals with socks and no focks given. Yes indeed. Buterin is a fashion icon of our time.

Some people lead in fashion. Some people follow. See YOU at your little cousin’s lost property bin. Keep up, darlings!
