Camila Russo, author of an upcoming book about Ethereum, joins the podcast. Camila is working on a book about the history of Ethereum that follows the journey from whitepaper, through ICO boom, to present day. We discuss her journey from Bloomberg journalist to becoming fascinated with the idea of crypto. She then discusses how she’s gone about writing her book and shares insights she’s gathered along the way. We discuss the original founders, members deciding to leave the project as it went on, Vitalik’s role shift through time and the opaqueness of the Ethereum foundation. Camila also writes a newsletter about DeFi called The Defiant.
