Vitalik Buterin’s crypto holdings have doubled since January 2021 to surge above $1 billion.
At the time of writing, the address holds around 333,500 Ether (ETH) , now worth $1.029 billion according to on-chain data from Etherscan, as ETH more than quadrupled in value from around $700 in the beginning of 2021.
According to some online crypto players, 27-year-old Buterin now could be the youngest self-made billionaire in the cryptocurrency industry.

Amid surging prices, Buterin has been generous with his crypto holdings. In late April, the Russian-Canadian programmer donated 100 Ether and 100 Maker (MKR) tokens to a COVID-19 relief fund for India.
