At a conference in Hong Kong, Vitalik Buterin, a co-founder of Ethereum, commented on the barrier on the roadmap to Eth2.

Moreover, the set of interconnected upgrades known as Eth2 will make Ethereum more scalable, secure, and sustainable. Eth2 involves Ethereum shifting its current mining model from a proof work model to staking.

In a Virtual Fintech Forum, Vitalik Buterin speaks relatively in Mandarin at this week’s StartmeupHK Festival 2021. In that forum Buterin stated, with the world’s largest smart contract network technology was not the utmost matter.

Henceforth, Buterin confessed that it’s taking more time to build Ethereum than he had expected. With early ETH mainnet blockchain, build approximates of around three months but in reality, it turns to eighteen months. 

Buterin stated,

“We thought it would take one year to do the Proof of Stake, but it takes six years. If you are doing a complex thing that you think will take a while. It’s very likely to take a lot more time”.

Hence more, Buterin added there were many internal team disputes in the five years it has taken Ethereum to get to where it is today. He stated, “one of the biggest problems I’ve found with our projects, not the technical problems, it’s problems related with people”.

Furthermore, Jehan Chu, co-founder, and managing partner at Hong Kong-based blockchain investment and trading firm Kenetic. He comments in the fireside chat.

According to the official documentation that states,”Originally, the plan was to work on shard chains before the merge – to address scalability. However, with the boom of layer two scaling solutions, the priority has shifted to swapping Proof-of-Work to Proof-of-Stake via the merge”.

Accordingly, Buterin stated, the current version of Ethereum has mainly become a target of its victory with expect pushing network fees. Because to record levels which makes the majority of transactions economically viable for the basic users.

The moniker was used less frequently because the team wanted to intensify that. This comment by Buterin, on the topic of Eth2. Also noted, “this isn’t throwing out the existing Ethereum platform and making a total news one. It’s a much more kind of incremental set of changes”.

Moreover, the energy consumed by the Proof-of-Work Ethereum blockchain is parallel to Hong Kong, according to Digiconomist. Consonantly, the new Proof-of-Stake network will use around 99.95% less energy.
