Vitalik Buterin Donated $2.4 Million to Anti-Aging Research
February 6, 2018
Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin donated $2.4 million in ETH to a non-profit research foundation called SENS Research Foundation. This foundation is aimed at fighting aging diseases.
"I've been a fan of Aubrey's work since I first read Ending Aging [a book written by Aubrey de Grey] when I was a teenager, and I am happy to have been blessed with the opportunity to personally support SENS's efforts. Their focus on creating solutions to the diseases of aging, one of the greatest problems facing humanity, is very much in line with my goal to positively impact the lives of millions of people around the world".
The founder of the SENS Research Foundation Aubrey de Grey at the end of 2017 said that the first person who can survive 1000 years is already living on Earth. De Grey believes that in 20 years scientists will develop a therapy that will eliminate body changes caused by aging.
Earlier, SENS Research Foundation had already received several bitcoin donations from Pineapple Fund to the amount of $2 million.
