Vitalik Butterin, co-founder of Ethereum, does not expect a rapid solution to the problem of scalability of the core network of the second most capitalised cryptovoltaic currency. He has outlined his position on this issue in a roadmap focused on Rollups technology.
According to him, there are „years left“ until the scalability of Ethereum at the basic level. That’s why Buterin is still offering to focus on Layer 2 solutions that reduce the load on the network and increase transaction speeds.
Vitalik Buterin estimated the current performance of Ethereum at around 15 TPS. With the full implementation of Rollups and the transition to ETH 2.0, the network will theoretically be able to handle 100,000 TPS.
The co-founder of Ethereum believes that Layer 2 protocols should be embedded in wallets and not „web pages like dapps“. He noted that such integration requires full trust from the user, which reduces security.
„Ideally we want to make the second level part of the wallet itself (e.g. MetaMask) in order to keep the current trust model,“ Buterin wrote.
Developer Hudson Jameson expressed his fears that with the implementation of the second level solution, the „simplicity of the block man“ will disappear. Buterine responded by saying that there is no other choice in the short term.
„There is no way around second-tier solutions that would lead to scalability in the short and medium term,“ he stressed.
Recall that in September the developer Evan Van Ness said that the launch of ETH 2.0 could take place ahead of schedule if there are no serious problems with the final testing phase.
On 29 September, the developers of Ethereum launched the Spadina test. The „rehearsal“ of the zero phase launch failed due to bugs, so it was decided to launch the Zinken testnet.
