Within a recent podcast hosted by Hashing It Out, the co-founder of Ethereum, Vitalik Buterin, revealed how he would handle Ethereum’s creation differently if he were building it now.
Buterin outlined the presence of several changes, both large and small, like executing more thoughts into the gas prices for instance. “We didn’t really do a very good job of setting those at the start,” Buterin said on the 2nd July podcast interview.
Changes Around Sharding & Proof-of-Stake
While mentioning gas prices and other smaller alterations he would have made thought at the beginning, Buterin took a glance at a number of the larger changes ongoing around Ethereum [ETH].
“We definitely did some underestimations on what proportion time it might take to finish alot of the things that we didn’t start back in 2015,” Buterin added, while specifying Proof-of-Stake, or PoS, and sharding as the most sizable aspects.
Explaining further, he added:
“Had we known that it might end up taking us years, we probably would have designed the roadmap differently and considered what the various teams would be performing on differently and making tons of selections therein regard in a very different way from how we are now, so, I think, definitely alot of regrets and wasted time in that regard.”
The blockchain expert also added regrets and wasted time concerning several other aspects around the technical side of the network, covering a mess of topics and ideas within the lengthy interview.
Ethereum 2.0 Is Still Been Worked On
Ethereum 2.0, or ETH 2.0, has been within the works for some time. Originally expected in January this year, ETH 2.0 has faced variety of delays. As per an earlier announcement by Ethereum’s blog revealed that the team still remains chugging away.
Earlier within this week, Buterin also spoke on Ethereum’s gradual scaling process for transactions.
