Ethereum founder, Vitalik Buterin, shared a story with fans about how he tried to get into Ripple and become an intern before starting his own project. As a result, Vitalik was denied the opportunity to undergo an internship at Ripple Labs, Inc., a software company for blockchains based in San Francisco. Vitalik wrote about this story in his Twitter.
Vitalik could not complete an internship in the company. As the management explained to him, this happened due to visa restrictions.
The story of Eric Yuan, Chinese entrepreneur
In his Twitter, Vitalik responded to a tweet from Coinbase CEO, Brian Armstrong, who shared his story – "The refusal of a US visa eight times."

Brian tells the story of Chinese entrepreneur, Eric Yuan, who saw his visa application rejected eight times before finally reaching the United States. Now he is the main shareholder of Zoom Video Communications, which provided video conferencing services and raised $ 751 million.
After that, Vitalik responded to the story with his own experience of refusing to issue a visa. In his tweet, he writes: "Funny fact: I tried to become an intern at Ripple on the same day (mid 2013) but was refused because of difficulties with the US visa."
Vitalik Buterin shared with readers the story of the unsuccessful attempt to become an intern at Ripple. Meanwhile, in February, Buterin poked fun at Ripple's bullying about the partnership that they tweeted.
Recall that on April 4, Vitalik Buterin entered the debate on cryptocurrency in Seoul. A public discussion took place between the developer of Ethereum and "Dr. Doom" Nouriel Roubini.
