Vitalik Buterin, the Ethereum co-founder, sat down with Laura Shin during an episode of the Unchained podcasts. Here are some interesting talking points that came about during the interview:
Is Ethereum losing its lead?
Buterin says that it is true to some extent, however, he reminded that Ethereum is still an early project and as an industry grows older, newer projects emerge which have learned from the projects that came before them.
Would you personally be upset if another blockchain takes the lead?
Buterin believes that Dfinity is Ethereum’s most promising competitor and that they have friendly relations with Zcash and are even “warming with Ethereum Classic.” However, if Tron overtakes Ethereum, he “will have lost a certain amount of hope for humanity.”
