It’s been just revealed that Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin said that his team maybe a few weeks away from migrating to the smart contract’s scaling issues.
During an episode of the Tim Ferriss Show, he explained that the rollups could improve ETH’s scalability ahead of the much-anticipated ETH 2.0 launch.
He believes that the temporary fix to Ethereum’s network congestion issues could be ready in a few weeks, and this will improve the smart contract platform’s transaction throughput by 100 times.
“…Basically, the proof-of-stake thing exists, has been stable, running ever since the launch, and at some point fairly soon, we are going to actually go and merge all of the proof-of-work activity onto it,” he said.
He continued and said: “So sharding is also going to happen… I will admit that we were actually prioritizing the merge even more than sharding recently. The reason why for this actually has to do with the other thing, which is rollups, right? The thing to remember is that if you have rollups, but you do not have sharding, you still have 100X factor scaling, right?”
He also said that “You still have the ability for the blockchain to go up to somewhere between 1,000 and 4,000 transactions a second, depending on how complex these transactions are. And so with rollups, as I mentioned, the optimism, fully EVM capable rollup is likely to launch, an initial being that release in around a month or so.”
