The founder of Ethereum, Vitalik Buterin, asked the community to prompt him to quit his work on the crypto platform for the position at Google. This is reported by Cryptovest.
Buterin posted a poll on this issue in his Twitter along with a screenshot of the letter, in which he was offered to join the search giant. Later the tweet was deleted, probably due to the fact that Buterin accidentally opened the email address of the sender (in the original message, the address was completely visible).

The letter was sent by Elizabeth Garcia, a HR specialist at Google, as described in her profile on LinkedIn.
In mid-March, it became known that Google is developing its own solution for the cloud services and a distributed ledger that third parties can use to send and verify transactions.
In April, the founders of the Nebulas, Loopring and Gifto crypto currency projects and former Google employees Hitters Syu, Daniel Wang and Andy Tian created a community called xGoogler Blockchain Alliance (GBA) for other ex-Gougs interested in blocking technology.
The representative of Google also confirmed the information that the company is engaged in its own developments in the field of distributed registry technology, but refused to disclose details.
