In a video spruiking Mila Kunis’ “NFT animated collection” Stoner Cats, Vitalik Buterin appears in her family home to explain Ethereum.
Actor and venture capitalist, Ashton Kutcher, has published a video to Twitter featuring himself, his wife Mila Kunis, and Ethereum founder Vitalik Buterin, to explain the project to newcomers
For the first minute, the video shows Kutcher quizzing Kunis on basic terms relating to cryptocurrency and blockchain technology in a living area of their home.
After Kunis offers simple one-sentence definitions to explain “crypto,” “blockchain,” and “decentralization,” Kutcher asks for a description of Ethereum.
“Ethereum is a general-purpose blockchain [. . . ] an open platform that allows people to build their own applications on top, and anything built on top of Ethereum is protected and secured [. . . ] by an entire network of thousands of computers around the world,” Buterin says.
So you can use Ethereum to create cryptocurrencies, or NFTs, or many other kinds of things. ”
