Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin posted earlier today (31) that he 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.”
Vitalik Buterin announced the news on Twitter earlier today (31), writing:
Proof of Stake, the (physical and electronic) book that brings together various books I have written over the past 10 years, will be published in a month! You can get signed eBooks and NFTs on Gitcoin. 100% of my personal income share will go to Gitcoin Grants to fund utilities!
"Proof of Stake", the (physical and digital) book compiling various writings I've made over the last ~10 years, will be out in a month!
