The first AI grants program, backed by Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin, was announced yesterday, and Buterin thanked the Shiba Inu community for the cryptocurrency that made the program possible.
The Vitalik Buterin Ph.D. Fellowship in AI Existential Safety is for students starting a PhD program in the United States, United Kingdom or Canada in 2022 who plan to pursue research in this field.
These scholarships have little to do with Shiba Inu, but Shiba Inu developers sent 50% of the total token supply to Vitalik Buterin’s address last year.
Buterin isn’t selling tokens for lucrative profits. Instead, he chose to burn 90% of the SHIB tokens his wallet received and donate the rest to charity.
