I met Vitalik Buterin in a grocery store today.

So I was doing grocery shopping – saw somebody who I thought looked like Vitalik. Then realized hey that is Vitalik.

Approached him quietly and asked “Hi excuse me, are you Vitalik?”

He turned away at first I think I scared him. Then I said I just wanted to meet him – at which point he said “oh ok sure” and we shook hands.

I wanted a picture with him but he seemed much too timid so I didnt want to bother him and didnt ask for one.

No real point to this other than it was a bit surreal to meet such a prominent figure in the crypto space. Figured I’d share.

He’s pretty tall. AMA.
