Ethereum Community Shares Disagreements With Vitalik Buterin
The Ethereum Community Disagrees With Vitalik Buterin On Topics Like Dogecoin, Immortality And Politics
In a recent tweetEthereum founder Vitalik Buterin asked the community to name some of his opinions that they disagree with.
Ethereum core developer Tim Beiko fears it may not be possible to deliver a proper privacy solution in a timely manner.
Hudson Jameson, a software engineer who joined the Ethereum Foundation in 2016, believes Buterin’s avoidance of political topics was a mistake as everything becomes politicized.
Angel investor Mariano Conti disagrees with Buterin’s idea of extending human lifespan. Conti says people have to make peace with the fact that they only live “a short time” on this planet.
Ethhub.io co-founder and prominent Ethereum co-founder Anthony Sassano believes it was a mistake to give Dogecoin legitimacy. While Sassano doesn’t believe the meme cryptocurrency is a scam per se, he still sees Dogecoin as just a tool to separate retail investors from their money. As reported by U.Today, the co-founder of Ethereum joined the board of the re-established Dogecoin Foundation last August.
In January, Buterin also shared some of the most vicious personal attacks on him.
Despite being at the forefront of the cryptocurrency revolution after co-founding the second-largest blockchain, Buterin is regularly criticized. Most of its detractors disagree with Ethereum’s scalability issues and frequent slowdowns.
As reported by U.Today, Ethereum could finally transition to the proof-of-stake consensus algorithm as early as August.
The cryptocurrency has performed very poorly in 2022 so far, but the much-anticipated upgrade could serve as a much-needed bullish catalyst.
