Vitalik Buterin and Joseph Lubin, Ethereum’s co-founders, are accused of sabotaging crypto and engaging in fraudulent initial coin offerings by former advisor Steven Nerayoff. In several posts on “X” and an episode on the blockchain podcast channel Crypto Town Hall, Nerayoff explains he has recordings to buttress his claims.
In his podcast appearance, Nerayoff asserted that Buterin and Lubin engaged in undisclosed dealings with government officials, specifically the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The aim was, allegedly, to shape a regulatory environment favorable to Ethereum. He even hinted that theories about the ETH Gate might hold some truth.
The early advisor to Ethereum also wrote on X that the largest blockchain network never scaled due to Buterin. He added that the only “killer app” was the creation of utility tokens through ICOs, both of which he claims to have invented.
Additionally, Nerayoff said that the audios are “a rare, unedited historical view into what was really happening.” He asserts that they would give the community a glimpse of a few “crucial decisions [that were] made or not made that shaped much of crypto”.
On November 14, Nerayoff replied to a comment, announcing his plan to release the three-hour recording within the next 48 hours. He explained that the delay is due to logistical reasons and the setup process for “smart NFTs” (Non-Fungible Tokens). However, the recording has not yet been released as of press time.
