after a long journey and a steep learning curve, with the help of common sense you will eventually realize that eth is just another shitcoin. The humble and technical informed would have told you before the project started that it couldn't work out for various reasons but the noise is strong with this \[eth\] one, to be continued... \[eth2.0\]
Have been working on Ethereum for the last couple of years and 1.0 is just fine for serious, real world applications that are fully scalable with the help of purpose built L2s. And while you do need eth2.0 to became the backbone of web 3.0 and other noble goals, Ethereum remains a technological and social marvel with all the shortcomings it has.
But you do you.
nice reply in case anyone wants to see some buzzwords together with how a brainwashed human looks like.
just run a full archive eth node,.. eth sells the borderless, censorship resistance, resilience & decentralized aspects of bitcoin for marketing reasons but under the hood it doesn't work out,..
which would be fine but vitalik et. al. are acting as if eth has all those attributes bitcoin has (and much more, e.g. some of your buzzwords + turing completeness (lol)),+..., which it clearly does not. It's like a rough version of libra, crafted and put on the web but eventually there will be no full verifying nodes or only controlled by people with massive resources (which can be governed), but you do you and build a gamble app with oracles and shit
(actually i'm sorry for the ad hominem in there but i'm tired of all the eth people and their lies , obv a "smart contract dev" who has no idea about the underlying protocol is more a victim of the eth foundation, vitalik,... than a villain but clearly there is central planning going on and bail outs and shit that has nothing to do with the ethos/aspects of bitcoin, which again would be fine if not sold as it would have those aspects,...)
DeFi bothers me. So does a lot of unnecessarily overpromising lingo from parts of the community (not V though).
Pragmatic work on business cases from SME to multinationals demonstrates the utility of Ethereum network. Happening now.
No one talks about this though. And I understand your frustration as a lot of it comes as a rightful critique of BS thats shoved around. I’d argue echo chambering is a factor too, but that happens in all crypto communities. No worries about ad hominem, this is Reddit after all and for someone I would categorize as a maxi you seem really constructive.
Oh man, journalists love dramatic titles, don't they :D
Btw "the army" which they refer to is the Taproot/Schnorr BIP review project, and it's still going on (it just concluded its second week), and although I'm not sure if it's still possible to join, you can find general infos, curriculum, notes, content and so on here: https://github.com/ajtowns/taproot-review
To be fair, I think many (if not most) of the people who signed up to this are in it to learn themselves. But yeah, 200 pairs of eyes on the code is 200 pairs of eyes on the code and I think the project is epic.
Also, the focus is not on the code itself but more on the BIP (although it's obviously both connected).
**Enormous Bitcoin Pastry Trashes Freedom of Speech**
Today, reddit user TheGreatMuffin posted a snarky clapback to an article by Coindesk about an army of bitcoiners, popularly known as the Megareview Taskforce, who are testing scalability and privacy improvements for the world's first blockchain...
