[Father of Vitalik Buterin] suggests that Buterin is trying to avoid the focus on him as the philosopher king of the blockchain world, stating "He is trying to focus his time on research. He's not too excited that the community assigns so much importance to him. He wants the community to be more resilient."

According to Wikipedia.

According to Forbes in 2021 Vitalik's net worth is 1.46 billion!!

Quite resilient, yea, but I can imagine a bit of shame when people call you philosopher king.
