Ethereum’s Most Heated Tech Debate Is Proving It’s Far From Over
Even though she quoted a few extreme/trollish statements, overall @rachel-rose does a decent job covering the many facets of this issue, and helpfully integrates comments made in this forum, in social media, in GitHub, and in deliberations at the 2018 Council of Berlin.
“I think that people feel unstuck in the sense of, ‘Hey, EIP 867 needs to get turned into an actual process.’”
I’m also really glad the article emphasized another key statement made by @boris on Saturday at the Council of Berlin:
“There is no finality in the room here,” Boris Mann, co-organizer of the event, reminded everyone. “We know that humans meeting face-to-face is a good way to get a job done, but finality in any decisions will be made in a much more open and accessible forum than this discussion.”
But unfortunately the extreme aspect came early-on in the article, perhaps dissuading many readers from reading on:
“Ethereum is completely centralized.”
It seems that the loudest and most quotable voices too often get included in articles. Could the spirit of this be conveyed without encouraging flat-earth views? Still, we remember that concerns about opaque governance processes are real, and should be thoughtfully addressed.
This is part of why we are organizing the Magicians and its Circles!
