Vitalik Buterin Says Human Issues, Not Technical Issues, Are Postponing Ethereum 2.0 Release

Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin recently discussed the much anticipated full transition from a proof-of-work (PoW) consensus model to a proof-of-stake (PoS) replacement. Buterin acknowledged that the transition took too long at the Startmeup HK 2021 festival in Hong Kong, emphasizing that these were "people related", not technical issues. Buterin: “If you are building a team, it is important to know who you are working with with Vitalik Buterin, who discussed the anticipated Ethereum 2.0 transition at the Startmeup HK 2021 festival in Hong Kong last week. The Ethereum co-founder stated that he understands that the changes take a long time and said that it is mostly humans that hinder improvements. "One of the biggest problems I've found with our project is human issues, not technical issues," Buterin told Forkast News. Said. “Ethereum is now in a better economic position, but it took us five years to get to where we are today. We've had a lot of intra-team conflicts in these five years. When you build a team, it's important to know who you're working with.” When Buterin was asked about Ethereum 2.0, he said that developers are calling it less and less these days. “We actually call it Ethereum 2.0 a little bit less because we want to emphasize that this is not throwing out the existing Ethereum platform and making a brand new one. It's more like an incremental series of changes," said the programmer. Scalability and proof-of-stake are important, Ethereum co-founder Buterin says, sharding and aggregations will increase Ethereum's scalability by 50 to 100 times and sharding, Buterin told the video server, Ethereum and Ethereum's Things above it will actually have the kind of scalability that large-scale enterprise applications expect.
