William Shatner defended Vitalik Buterin against ‘literal scammer’ claims on Twitter this week. The USSS Enterprise’s very own James T Kirk appears to have found a deep love of Ethereum.
Vitalik Not a Star Wars Fan?
It would appear one of the best ways is simply to say that there is a rumor. You can even admit that you started it… if you’re William Shatner.
Are we absolutely sure @VitalikButerin isn’t a Star Wars fan? I’ve heard rumors…some started by myself!
Those who want to appear clued up will pretend they already know the rumors, and those who don’t will ask. At which point, you set the rumor free.
Or if you’re William Shatner, and pop has already eaten itself… Wait until somebody reports the fact that you’re starting rumors, then innocently ask them what the rumors are.
What kind of rumors? 😳🤔🤷🏼♂️ https://t.co/zzfPRKdKkW

Cue somebody who didn’t do due diligence, patronizingly trying to explain Eth to Kirk in Star Trek terms.
In case you’re wondering what it is, you can think of Ethereum like a present day hybrid of precious dilithium ore and gold pressed latinum.
Shatner strung the joker along, and showed off his Trekkie knowledge, pointing out that Latinium didn’t exist in his timeline. But when enough was enough, Shatner showed his hand and pulled the plug with some deep crypto-burn.
