Observing from a distance, Vlad Zamfir always seemed to me, like a colourful mind on the Ethereum spectrum. When tasked with documenting some of DEVCON1‘s best moments, I knew this was the time to introduce myself. We ran into each other in the open spaced room, behind the event’s main hall. We had a quick chat about his role in Ethereum and how we both see the project through a social rather than a scientific prism. Vlad agreed to record an interview on one condition; he gets to say his thing first, as a monologue. The monologue and interview will be published in two different parts, follow Vlad.
