It’s Why Ethereum Co-founder Vitalik Buterin Is Taking Back His Rs. 747 Crore Crypto Donation From India

He added that he had co-founded a new organization called Balvi that will handle the process on his behalf in order to ensure a transparent deployment of the cash.

Vitalik Buterin is a Russian-Canadian programmer and writer who has been active in the Bitcoin ecosystem since 2011, co-founding Bitcoin magazine and contributing to its content. He is known for creating Ethereum, a blockchain-based platform that acts as a global computer for decentralized applications.

Reports indicate Vitalik Buterin will receive a percentage of Shiba Inu coins he gave to an Indian relief fund, India Crypto Relief Fund, popularly known as CryptoRelief, in 2021. Earlier this week, Buterin announced on Twitter that CryptoRelief is returning $100 million in bitcoin (roughly Rs. 745 crores) from the “Shiba fund”.

Buterin aims to personally invest these funds in “higher-risk, higher-reward COVID scientific and humanitarian programs throughout the world.”

According to him, he co-founded Balvi, an organization that will manage the cash disbursement process on his behalf to ensure transparency.

Sandeep Nailwal, the cofounder of Polygon and creator of CryptoRelief, confirmed Vitalik’s statement, saying the funds would be released in USDC, a stable coin tied to the US dollar.

According to Sandeep, the decision to return some of the monies to Vitalik was largely influenced by the requirement to comply with Indian legislation regarding relief fund distribution.

Buterin introduced Balvi in a separate tweet. Balvi is in a better position to make high-value, global bets that benefit both Indians and non-Indians, believes Buterin. Initiatives will include vaccine research and development, novel air filtration and ventilation methods, and testing.

According to Balvi, SHIB funds will be mainly used for vaccine research and development, air filtration initiatives, and testing, among other things.
