Major crypto platform founders support anti-aging research, saying that a bigger population could live even with finite resources

Ethereums Vitalik Buterin, IOTAs David Snsteb and Trons Justin Sun are discussing anti-aging research andsupporting it. Buterin admittedthat thisidea is weird for many peoplethese days, though, he also calledaging a humanitarian disaster.

In the course of a recent discussion of weird ideas on Twitter, the co-founder of Ethereum, Vitalik Buterin, suggested discussing anti-aging research, calling aging a humanitarian disaster.

He stated that every two years, as many people die from aging as didin World War 2. Additionally, he saidthat theissue burdens social systems and families. Buterin hopes that soon scientists will be able to significantly extend the human life span.

When asked about the planet getting overpopulated and the issue of the resources coming to an end, the Ethereum co-founder stated:

On average a new person contributes more to the resources available to existing humans than they deplete. (This is due to their productive labor, scientific research, the change they become the next Norman Borlaug, etc...)

We are nowhere near any theoretical bounds on our ability to use those resources. Our efficiency in using limited resources has increased by orders of magnitude in the last two centuries, and can rise orders of magnitude more.

IOTA founder, David Snsteb, has responded, saying that in 2020 the discussion on life-extension measures should not at all be considered a weird idea, unlike it was fifteen years ago, in 2005.

Now, Snsteb tweeted, this should be the universal common sense position.

The Tron founder Justin Sun briefly joinedthe discussion.

In an exclusive interview with U.Today, the IOHK CEO and Cardano founder Charles Hoskinson also shared his take on the subject of anti-aging.

While describing possible trends of the future, he mentioned a largely growing market of life extension products and services. He recalled thewell-known example of a jellyfish that can regenerate and thus live forever.

So there's probably going to be a considerable amount of improvement in regenerative biology and an improvement in a human lifespan extension and new therapies and medicines to keep us healthy into our deep old age. So then what does that mean? It means you have a human race that doesn't recycle every 80 years. They may last a lot longer.

He also suggestedthat as the anti-aging trend likely gets wider and stronger, there will be fewer religious people accepting death as a natural part of human life.
