Vitalik Buterin is considered to be the intellectual Creator of Ethereum. Have, among others, also Dr. Gavin Wood, Mihai Alisie, Anthony Di Iorio and Charles Hoskinson, Ethereum co-founded. Still, it was Buterin, is mentioned at the end of 2013 for the first time, the idea of Ethereum and a little later also the Ethereum white paper published. As Vitalik explained via Twitter, willing it to detach from Ethereum and to recede into the Background.

Ethereum inventor Vitalik Buterin said that the Ethereum network will need to function without it and also can. On Twitter Buterin said that the process of detachment from Ethereum had already begun and that the project could survive if he disappears spontaneously. He pointed out that much of the programming work is already being taken over by other developers. The research activities were already taken by Others, such as Danny, Ryan, Justin Drake, and Hsiao-Wei Wang.
Buterin added that Ethereum could survive now without him, although he has no plans to disappear from today to tomorrow. He also said that no time frame of when he could step into the Background.
Constantinople, the Hard Fork in the Testnet is moved
Meanwhile, Péter Szilágyi announced yesterday that the Plan will delay the introduction of the coming Constantinople Hard Forks in the Ropsten to the test network something. The main reason for this is a Denial of Service (DoS) attack on the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) of the test network. Therefore, the Testnet will be moved to the Start of Constantinople an “epoch”, which corresponds to a delay of about 5 days.
Originally, the Constantinople of the Hard Fork was in the Ropsten to the test network for the 9. October planned. The new launch date is now 14. October set. A little later, at the end of October, according to the Ethereum Devcon 4, the of 30. October to 2. November takes place, to enable the Hard Fork in the Mainnet. Whether the delay in Ropsten Testnet is now a delay for the Mainnet, is not yet known. The Upgrade will increase the speed of the network, fees are lower and the way, how is the data stored, to change.
