Ethereum 2.0 Is Harder to Implement Than Developers Thought, Says Buterin
A lesson many people haven't learn: Development is not coding. So let's take a look at what's in instead. Development always starts with a kit to utilize functions already settled in a coded pre-environment. Coding is a zero to hero walk through the jungle of imagination and mathematical creation. There is no roll-on/off plan we can follow the roadmap is the idea and the conceptional work. Every code is ordered in a script block. And each of these script blocks has to be tested before implemented. In such a complex area Ethereum has been coded and a development kit is only addressing the network. Ethereum 2.0 is new in build code which has to be implemented by code change also. There is no development kit actually covering changes. The process is a trial and error.
“I definitely freely admit that Ethereum 2.0 is much harder than we expected to implement from a technical perspective.”
Buterin added that there are no technical flaws that would make the Ethereum 2.0 project be abandoned, stating that it shall be completed. A pointer to this is obviously the enormous progress made so far by the team.
While airing his views on how he expects things to pan out, he said that it is likely many applications built on the platform will succeed while others won’t. However, he maintained that these would be independent outcomes.
“If Ethereum tries to get into one space, and it turns out it’s actually not useful for that space, then fine, you know, those applications will not go anywhere. Meanwhile, the other sectors will keep going,” he said. The world of Etherum is full of expectations. Communities likely have no idea what they talking of. Sure Etherum will be upgraded. But what is the price to pay?
