Vitalik Buterin criticizes DePIN – and causes the price to rise


Vitalik Buterin, one of the renowned co-founders of Ethereum and an influential figure in the cryptocurrency space, recently caused considerable discussion with his critical statements about DePIN projects in a post on Warpcast.

Vitalik Buterin criticizes DePIN – and causes the price to rise

The target of his criticism was the DePIN field, known as “Decentralized Physical Infrastructure”. Buterin questioned whether DePIN projects that aim to decentralize physical infrastructure really have the potential to be successful. In his post, Buterin expressed skepticism about projects like Storj, which have been operating in the crypto world for almost a decade. He emphasized that despite their long presence, these projects have not yet achieved the expected breakthrough.

What was particularly surprising was that Storj recorded a remarkable increase of over ten percent after Buterin’s critical comments. The Storj token temporarily reached a value of over $0.9 before correcting back to lower levels. The DePIN projects, including established players such as Filecoin and Storj, aim to decentralize existing monopoly structures in various areas such as finance.

AI is also becoming increasingly important in the crypto world

But the question of the sudden interest and increase in value of such projects following Buterin’s comments remains a central issue in the crypto world. Buterin’s critical stance towards the prospects of success of DePIN projects raises important questions that the entire industry will discuss.

At a time when DePIN and artificial intelligence are becoming increasingly important, it remains to be seen whether Buterin’s concerns will have a lasting impact on the future of these emerging projects. Observers and investors will be watching closely to see how this discussion develops. And whether it will have a long-term impact on the dynamics of the Decentralized Physical Infrastructure field.
