    ETHPrize Report Sources Top Ethereum Developers to Highlight Challenges in Ecosystem

    After interviewing more than 100 Ethereum developers to identify development issues, the community behind ETHPrize released a report to highlight the challenges those developers face.

    The authors of the report spent four months interviewing more than 100 developers to determine what issues were holding up the ecosystem. Andy Tudhope, who works for Status.im said:

    “A whole community of awesome people spent nearly 4 months sitting down for an hour each with over 100 developers in order to understand their biggest frustrations; the tools they use most often; how they handle security, testing and verification; the best educational resources they have used to get where they are; and the many others ideas, products, and services they are excited to see on web3.”

    In the report, the interviews can be searched for by topics and projects. To exemplify, readers who click on “Truffle” will be shown a list of interviews that mention that term. Tudhope also said that ETHPrize was looking for help in manually tagging the interviews. After that, the group plans to use machine learning to categorize future interviews, as well as Ethereum related blog posts. Additionally, ETHPrize is offering a submission form that developers can fill out to help with the project.

    Bounties From ETHPrize

    The project arranged $500,000 USD in bounties to identify and solve the biggest challenges facing Ethereum’s development. It is supported by several crypto startups, including 0x, Toshi, Status, Truebit, L4 Ventures, as well as the Web3Foundation and the Ethereum Community Fund.

    They are offering two development bounties of $250,000 USD each. The first is for an Ethereum package manager and the second is for an open source block explorer. Both of these are what they call active bounties.

    Ethereum Development In The Future

    Earlier this month, Google co-founder Sergey Brin told journalists at a blockchain conference in Morocco that he had been mining the crypto with his son. And back in May, Brin said in a company letter that there was currently a “boom in computing” that was due in part to “GPU-friendly proof-of-work algorithms found in some of today’s leading cryptocurrencies, such as Ethereum.”

    A couple of months back, the arrival of the Casper testnet on the Parity Etherum client marked a major development with regard to marquee scaling projects for Ethereum, such as Sharding and Plasma. In April, even Vitalik Buterin tweeted out a link to the Ethereum research code repository with the text, “Sharding is coming.”

    Notably, there are multiple groups working on various implementations of sharding, including Prysmatic Labs, which recently discussed the idea of using a sidechain called a beacon chain to avoid network bottlenecks.
