Vitalik Buterin Explains Ethereum
According to Buterin, Ethereum is a multipurpose blockchain where developers can build different applications without hassles. The protocol is secured and protected by thousands of computers all over the world. This means that any project based on its platform is also secured.
Due to its protocol’s support for programming languages, developers can create anything they want of the platform. Thus, projects such as NFTs or cryptocurrencies can be based on Ethereum without issues. After his explanation, the actor could only respond with a “that makes sense” statement.

The hashtags and links to the video show that the aim is to promote a series of NFTs called “Stoner Cats.” For instance, anybody who buys the NFT gets access to the Kunis animated series bearing the same name as the token.
According to our source, the series is tagged “The first NFT animated series,” and people with access can stream it.
Regarding the actor’s participation in NFTs, we gathered that he digitalized & incinerated an artwork that many thoughts were terrible. This was last year in August, and his explanation about it was to assist ecological charities.
Apart from the artwork, Kutcher’s A-Grade Investment firm had supported some crypto firms, BitPay and BitGo, in 2013 and 2014.
