Crypto Supporters Over-Hype Smart contracts And Others
One of the hottest topics everywhere today is Digital assets. In recent times, a lot of reviews and speculations have risen around these assets. Many of the industry proponents are busy trying to fight against critics by coming out to disagree on negative views. So, we are surprised with the reports we got on the issue during the New York Blockchain Week. An interview with prominent luminaries revealed that some of the cryptocurrency products receive more hype than necessary.
Popular Luminaries Speaks About Crypto Products
The first person who pointed at the intensive promotion which some products are getting is Erik Voorhees. Eric is the CEO of Shapeshift. He thinks that the blockchain which corporate entities control receive more promotion than it deserves. According to him, this type of products is not productive yet. Instead, the message they send is contrary to the purpose of creating a blockchain. He also pointed out that they may have value but not as high as the hype on them.
His exact words where,
“I’m not aware that any have been successfully used, and they kind of destroy the point of why blockchains are useful in the first place. That’s not to say they don’t have any value, but I think they are overhyped.”
Voorhees was not the only one in the panel. The Chief Executive Officer of Tron Foundation Justin Sun was there too. Sun pointed out that the industry has been using the sentiment that cryptocurrencies will bring a change to everything. The community is over-hyping this idea right now. The CEO went further to state that crypto effects will be more evident in finance and the “decentralized technology.” But to encompass all aspect of our modern life may not be very easy as enthusiast says. Sun further advised the proponents to consider the utility of every token first before believing its hype or popularity.
Smart Contracts Gets More Promotion Than Necessary
The next crypto proponent we heard from was Tone Vays. Tone is a YouTuber and a popular crypto analyst. According to him, smart contracts received more hype than every other product in the industry. Vays used a soda machine to compare to a smart contract. He pointed out the difference between its basic functions and end product.
He stated that
“It’s a great smart contract, but there is no reason to have that contract be so grossly, technologically inefficient that it takes global electric power and decentralization, of storing this contract on hundreds of thousands of computers in fear of somebody forgetting that this contract took place and computational power.”
