Vitalik Buterin launched a collection of NFTs for charity and will give his signed digital book to each user who contributes to the creation of the non-fungible tokens.
It has been officially learned from Vitalik Buterin himself that his book on the “Proof of Stake, the creation of ethereum and the blockchain philosophy” will be released next month.
It is now available for pre-order at online retailers such as: Amazon, Seven Stories, Books-A-Million, Bookshop.org, Hudson, Walmart, among many others, to acquire them in physical form.
However, to be at the forefront of innovation, growth and adoption of NFTs, it has launched a different way to be able to get hold of the book. On his official Twitter feed he posted a message telling about the news that you can have the digital copy signed by him and an NFT at. Proof Of Stake – Gitcoina website created exclusively for this occasion.
Gitcoinis a company that offers a remote work platform for open source software developers. People working in this environment do so for different companies, but without supervision from them. It has its own GTC token and its long-term vision is to cede control of the assets under the reins of the Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO) that will be managed by the same community that belongs to Gitcoin.
From September 13 it will be possible to download the virtual book signed by Vitalik Buterin, but so far he himself has offered non-transferable NFTs to help the cause.
The objective of the same is to mint a non-transferable NFT and once the book is available, you will have access to the signed digital copy.
Moreover, Vitalik has promised that the funds will be allocated as follows: 90% will be given to “Gitcoin Grants” Gitcoin’s program to discover and fund public projects. Grants for these projects are held through. Quadratic FundingThe grants for these projects are supported through “Gitcoin Grants”, a mathematically optimal way to finance public goods in a democratic community.
The other 10% will go to the publishing partner that brought the book to life called Seven Stories Press, with the goal of supporting public goods in independent publishing.
Seven Stories Press is an independent publishing house based in New York City, USA, founded by Dan Simon in 1995.
On the other hand, the book’s freelance writer/editor was Nathan Schneider, a professor of media studies at the University of Colorado Boulder, where he directs the Media Enterprise Design Lab. He has also written books for movements such as Occupy y God. Nathan, through his Twitter, has publicly given his thanks and recounted that he had fun editing the Ethereum founder’s book.
Personally, I have already minted my non-transferable NFT to give my support to these projects and organizations. Also, I have been interested in the book on “Proof of Stake, the creation of ethereum and the blockchain philosophy”.
Finally, the book is about essays before and during the rise of Ethereum that Vitalik Buterin himself has been writing for ten years. The idea is to be able to capture the work of the 28-year-old Russian writer who, while the entire ecosystem was focused on seeing Ether’s value increase, he was working on the problems and possibilities of creating a native and usable world on the Internet.
