The most recent conversation between Elon Musk and Ethereum ETH co-founder Vitalik Buterin seems to have shifted from trolling to legitimate discussion.
Earlier this morning, the Tesla founder mysteriously tweeted “Ethereum.” Seven minutes later, he took it back with a cheeky “jk” (‘just kidding.’)
Musk continued to poke fun, even after Buterin invited him to attend an Ethereum developer’s conference.
Now, Musk actually asked Buterin a serious question: what’s Ethereum good for?
What should be developed on Ethereum?
“A globally accessible financial system, including payments, store of value, also more advanced stuff like insurance,” said Buterin, before referring to a smart contract system that would automatically file insurance claims for hurricane relief should extreme wind be nearby.
