As put by countless stakeholders and commentators on Twitter and Reddit, crypto assets are much like sports teams. In other words, investors will stop and nothing to see their favorite projects succeed, whether it be Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), XRP, or what have you.
Interestingly, over recent weeks and months, the Ethereum camp has come under pressure across the board. The “World Computer’s” cynics claim that the blockchain’s development is falling well behind schedule. But is this really the case?
In a recent episode of Laura Shin’s “Unchained” podcast, Vitalik Buterin was surprisingly candid about Ethereum, his brainchild. As reported by NewsBTC previously, the Canadian-Russian programmer affirmed that it isn’t out of the realm of possibility that the Ethereum Blockchain sees its traction slip in the years to come.
In response to an inquiry on the subject matter, Buterin claimed that “it’s kind of inevitable and unavoidable” that the project sees its hegemony in the smart contracting space slowly dwindle away, specifically as a result of time and development. Buterin is far from the first to have made this claim.
