On the eve of the transition of the Ethereum network from a proof-of-work model to a proof-of-stake model, Vitalik Buterin, one of the main founders of this blockchain, has indicated that his influence on the Ethereum network has decreased over the past 2 years, and that new developers, Many have taken on key roles in the Ethereum Foundation.
To Report Crypto News, in his interview yesterday with Noah Smith, an active blogger in the field of economics, said that he has long dreamed that Ethereum will one day become an ecosystem in which its influence and influence is less than in the past. And the reason is that other amazing people are starting to grow and comment on this network.
Buterin said about the process of reducing his influence on Ethereum activities:
In 2015, I basically did 80% of Ethereum research myself and even prepared a lot of the Python code we needed myself. In 2017, I did less coding; But 70% of research works [همچنان] It was my responsibility. By 2020, my share of Ethereum research work had dropped to a third, and I was contributing as little to code as most. However, I still did a lot of the high-level theorizing myself. Over the past two years, however, even high-level theorizing has gradually eluded me.
From Buterin’s point of view, new Ethereum researchers, such as Polynya, have already taken a significant share of the intellectual leadership of activities related to Ethereum’s scaling solutions.
He says about this:
People like Barry WhiteHat and Brian Gu have taken responsibility for working on zero-knowledge proof technology, and Justin and Dankrad (from Ethereum Foundation researchers) who were initially hired as researchers. , have shown their capabilities more than before and now they are also thought leaders [اتریوم] are relevant
Buterin did not specifically mention the projects he is currently working on; But he has mentioned his latest interests and inspirations.
The co-founder of Ethereum said:
Apart from the science related to digital currencies, the progress of society in biotechnology and artificial intelligence during this time has been amazing. About artificial intelligence, some believe that this amount of progress is too surprising. We’re starting to try to understand what the politics and technologies of the 21st century are going to look like in the future, and how each of the components of what we’re working on fits into that picture.
As previously reported, to join the race for the best-selling cryptocurrency book this year, Vitalik Buterin is set to release a new book titled “Proof of Stake: Ethereum’s Construction Process and the Philosophy of Blockchains,” a collection of notes from the past 10 years. It is his own and will be released in physical and digital form on September 27 (5 Mehr).
