I don’t know if this is the place to post this question so if I’m in the wrong place please redirect me to the right place:)
Eth2.0 comes with some drastic changes and it seems to me that it’s going to be a complete overhaul. In the latest Into The Ether podcast I heard @econoar saying that we should port the network effect Ethereum has to the practically new blockchain Ethereum 2.0.
My concern is how Ethereum is able to maintain this network effect if the new chain is completely different from Ethereum as it is today. A developer/company building on Ethereum now have to rewrite their contracts thoroughly, so why would they choose Ethereum? Doesn’t the overhaul level the playing field between Ethereum and its competitors? Especially if competitors are delivering quicker than eth 2.0. To exaggerate: why would people wait 3 years for eth 2.0 to arrive with mostly unknown specifics if there’s a competitor which has more clear specifics earlier on.
Of course the community is bonded by more than the technicalities, but it’s a challenge nonetheless, right?
