Vitalik Buterin received a job offer from Google and posted a scan of the letter on his Twitter.
In addition, he launched a poll of subscribers with the only question: should he leave Ethereum and go to Google. 41% of respondents said “yes”, 59% – “no”.
Later, Buterin removed his post, possibly due to the fact that the e-mail of Google employee Elizabeth Garcia was clearly visible in the scan. She really works as a recruiting manager at Google, which is reflected in her profile on LinkedIn. Previously, she held a position in the Chamber of Commerce of Los Angeles.
Sources from Google confirmed that the company is interested in blockchain technology, but did not disclose any other details.
“We have different expert teams studying the potential use of both blockchain equipment and many other new technologies. However, it is now too early to talk about any specific applications or plans, “the Google representative said.
In April, it became known that a number of former employees of Google founded the community xGoogler Blockchain Alliance. The goal of the community is to help former employees of the corporation with a career in the blockchain industry.
