Co-founder of Google Sergey Brin admitted that he mines Ethereum

Sergey Brin, one of the richest people on the planet, whose wealth is estimated at 52 billion dollars, admitted this fact during the annual blockchain summit, which took place on the private island of Richard Branson.

In the last minutes of the summit, Sergey Brin stated that he is mining Ethers with his 10-year old son. Brin also spoke positively about the technology “Zero Evidence Proof” developed by the Zcash team. As you know, Zcash and Ethereum teams are working on joint projects, and the creator of Ethereum, Vitalik Buterin, intends to integrate zero knowledge proof algorithms into blockchain in the future.
