Vitalik Buterin recently asked his followers to stop requesting money from him.
In a recent tweet, Buterin said: “Ok guys, please don’t beg for money in social or chat messages.”
The Ethereum co-founder said he usually feels bad whenever he cannot meet people’s financial needs. He noted that while genuine reasons might back most financial requests, it is difficult for him to verify each of these claims, adding:
“[…] Having a pattern of responding to such requests would lead to my inbox breaking completely.”
