Since 2015, the project of scaling Ethereum's "base layer" has been touted as its primary differentiator from Bitcoin. Sharding is the Philosopher's Stone of Ethereum's altcoin alchemy - the implementation of which is, unsurprisingly, "years away". https://t.co/FezL7Uxsp0
U guys think @VitalikButerin is capable of throwing in the towel & admit base layer scalability is NOT possible?
What has to happen for him to drop ETH & start from scratch?
I'm NOT saying ETH can't scale just curious at what point engineers acknowledge its not going to happen. https://t.co/aGE096O2Ls
