Google Sergey Brin mining with his son Ethereum

Co-founder of Google and President of Alphabet, Sergey Brin, announced during a conference – hosted by Sir Richard Branson on July 8 – that he is running Ethereum Mining with his son.

Sergey Brin, who has an estimated net worth of $ 52 billion, is mining with his son Ethereum. This was reported by Michael del Castillo from Bransons Hotel (Morocco). In addition, Brin, one of the richest men in the world, talked about the potential of blockchain technology at the event.

The Blockchain event also featured ZCash, zero-knowledge proof, privacy and privacy.

Ethereum Mining with his son

One or two years ago, my son insisted we get a gaming PC. I said, Okay, but if we buy a gaming PC, we have to use it to dig cryptocurrencies. ‘So we installed an Ethereum Miner and have since made a few cents, a few [US] dollars.

That was the impetus for Sergey Brin’s interest in blockchain technology. He does not know much about cryptocurrencies, but he is overwhelmed by the blockchain’s potential. However, Google lags behind, one would have to recognize the technology earlier.

Zero Knowledge Proofs

Sergey Brin was overwhelmed with the potential of the Zero Knowledge Proof, calling this evidence “truly mind-blowing.” Because this evidence can be used to show that a transaction is correct without passing transaction data to nodes. This privacy opportunity inspires the Google founder.

Neha Narula, director of the Digital Currency Initiative at MIT Media Lab, also found favor with the Zero Knowledge Proof:

Basically, you can prove that something is true without having to reveal the evidence. To prove that you are 21, you no longer have to show official documents. Zero Knowledge evidence will have a major impact over the next few years.
