Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin posted earlier today (31) that The will publish a new book “Proof of Stake” in September, which includes various books he has published in the past ten years. The software fundraising platform Gitcoin participates in the donation , and you can get Vitalik Buterin’s signed e-book and commemorative NFT.
As the merger and upgrade is about to come in mid-September, Vitalik Buterin took advantage of the situation to publish a book, and assembled the text creations related to blockchain issues over the years into a book “Proof of Stake”, and then matched it with “Ethereum Creation History and Blocks” The slogan of “The Philosophy of Chain”, the physical book and e-book are released simultaneously.
The new book is scheduled to be released on September 27, two weeks after the Ethereum merger was scheduled, but it is well-timed as Ethereum has just transitioned to a proof-of-stake (PoS) consensus mechanism. According to the description of the Gitcoin fundraising website, the text in the book was written by Vitalik Buterin before and after the rise of Ethereum, indicating that he was “a vivid and imaginative writer.”
According to the actual measurement, after entering the donation page , although the default donation amount is 0.1337 ETH, it can also be adjusted arbitrarily to the amount of ETH you want to donate. At present, there is no minimum donation threshold found, which is the so-called “donate with joy and donate freely” , but the donation amount will be displayed on the commemorative NFT.
Interestingly, the commemorative NFT presented with the book this time is the non-transferable, non-financialized token that Vitalik Buterin had previously highly praised—Soulbound Token.
