V God:


Cryptocurrency payments have become less popular after 2018, and it is clear that transaction fees are one of the reasons why it cannot be ignored. Ethereum is pushing for a cheaper, cheaper way to upgrade. Faster payments. If we can extend the scalability of Ethereum through upgrades, cryptocurrency payments will become a common phenomenon.

Over the past two years, the Ethereum development community has been continuously promoting the transition from the PoW consensus algorithm to the PoS consensus algorithm. In the case of PoW, virtual assets can be obtained by deciphering a large number of blocks, while PoS is a structure in which everyone can verify transaction details and receive rewards for virtual assets based on their stake. Therefore, PoS is considered as an alternative to solve the problems of slow transaction speed and high gas cost (fees), which have long been considered the shortcomings of Ethereum.

Anyone should be able to use the blockchain, but Ethereum transaction fees have always been expensive. (After the upgrade is completed) the energy consumption of obtaining Ethereum can be reduced by 99.9%. Through data compression, the current tps of the Ethereum chain at around 20 can be increased to 100,000.

We need to popularize the blockchain itself. Rather than competing between chains or protocols, the industry must now work together to move liquidity and users from one chain to another. In addition, in the next 5-10 years, it is expected that most traditional finance will use blockchain.

Sergej Kunz, co-founder of 1inch Network:

Although the DeFi market is relatively small in South Korea and Asia, 1inch is looking to partner with many Asian Web3 companies. The biggest barrier to entry seems to be a lack of understanding of DeFi and how to use crypto wallets. The popularity of blockchain-based games in Asia may bring more people into the DeFi market.
