A tweet by the founder of Ethereum, Vitalik Buterin revealed that he was contemplating on leaving the Ethereum project to join Google’s team. What did Google offer Ethereum’s CEO is not known, but it looks like they tried to recruit him to their company. A screenshot of the now deleted poll and a screenshot of the email that was sent to him by a member of Google are circulating the internet.

Vitalik Buterin’s dilemma: Google or Ethereum?

The tweet that was posted by Vitalik Buterin on May 20th is currently deleted, but the snapshots will forever be on the internet. Ethereum’s creator posted a voting poll on Twitter. In it, he asked his followers and fans if he should ditch Ethereum and go work with Google. Also he posted a screenshot from a recruiter, who asked if Google is making sense for him in the future or present.

Vitalik Buterin might have deleted the original tweet himself, because he failed to censor the name of Google’s headhunter, profile photo and email. The voting pool received more than two thousand responses, before it was shut down. The most interesting fact from the story is that most of his fan base and followers voted negatively on him ditching Ethereum.

About Vitalik Buterin’s Google-related deleted tweet, a Reddit user by the name of Fuyuki_Wataru commented like this:

“He is free to do whatever he wants… truth be told, his talent is too high for him to be caged in, even for a company like Google. If you’ve achieved so much at such a young age, I think life has more plans for you. Maybe a nice one to two month vacation could be better.”

From the linkedin of the recruiter from Google, we know that her name is Elizabeth Garcia and she is recruiting on-site engineers for the company. She has worked before in the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce as the interviewing coach.

Google wants to be ahead of its competitors

In March this year, Google revealed that they will be working on multiple blockchain projects. One of them allegedly is an auditing system that can’t be tampered. The other will be a platform for cloud operations. These plans were announced just one month after Google banned cryptocurrency related advertisement for their Google platform and Google addwords.

From it all, it looks like that the email that was sent to Ethereum’s founder wasn’t a mistake, as Google is pursuing blockchain technology innovations and are investing in developing it. Google understands the benefits of blockchain and don’t want to be left behind in the tech industry. More and more corporations are investing in blockchain development and it will be interesting to see where the technology will lead the world.

Some of Google’s former employees have founded a group called “xGoogler Blockchain Alliance” to support blockchain development. Google’s pursuit has been confirmed by inside people, but for now there are no specific details on the subject.
