Elon Musk asked Vitalik Buterin why he left Portal X. An avalanche of answers

During the hectic period of Elon Musk's 2022 takeover of Twitter, the billionaire largely paid no attention to the exodus of prominent users and advertisers. However, over time this changed. Elon Musk asked Vitalik Buterin why he left Portal X. Although he has not received an answer from the co-creator of Ethereum at this point, the question caused a real avalanche of answers from other creators.

Elon Musk asked Vitalik Buterin, but he got answers from other cryptocurrency creators

The co-creator of Ethereum appears on the X website less and less often. The frequency of new entries is clearly decreasing, not to say that it is practically non-existent when comparing Buterin's activity during the years of developing his life's project. Although the current ruler has largely ignored the exodus of Twitter influencers and advertisers over the last two years, he has now started to pay more attention to it.

On Monday, March 25, Elon Musk asked Vitalik Buterin why he left Portal User voices included arguments such as increased bot activity and lack of on-chain functionality.

Interestingly, just a few days ago the same question was asked to Buterin during the ETH Taipei conference. His answer was:

Twitter is where all the people are, but it's also where all the really annoying people are.

Is Crypto-Twitter today just an echo of the former power of a decentralized community?

Although Elon Musk asked Vitalik about the reasons for his reduced activity on the X website, he certainly knew the reason for this state of affairs. Well, for months, Buterin has been publishing entries much more frequently on Farcaster, a decentralized social media protocol. There is currently a belief among many cryptocurrency creators that today's Krypto-Twitter (or rather Krypto-X) is no longer what it was before.

In fact, over the last few years, the portal purchased by Musk has been struggling with many difficulties, such as an army of bots. Nevertheless, the billionaire is trying to patch these problems and turn X into a versatile application. On the other hand, traffic to X among the cryptocurrency community is still at a very high frequency level.
