Co-Founder of Ethereum, Vitalik Buterin has sparked several responses after he openly stated that “centralized exchanges go burn in hell”. The most recent reaction comes from the CCO of Huobi UK, Josh Goodbody. By the looks of it, Goodbody does not support Buterin’s views calling it “visceral”.
Goodbody expressed his opinion to NewsBTC stating that both centralized and decentralized platforms have “their own pros and cons”. Buterin has been very vocal about decentralization and strongly believes that it should be the case across all industries, which to Goodbody is “quite a broad statement”.
The CCO did not stop at sharing his views on Buterin’s perspective and went on to sharing some of Huobi’s ongoing plans. Based on the information shared, Huobi will be working towards becoming a completely decentralized protocol.
As for his views on the overall crypto sphere, he openly expressed that he is aware of the current issues at hand, especially the likes of the lack of investment and security aspects. However, he still sees a lot of potential for the market. In particular, he shared:
“Not everyone wants to hold private keys. As long as it’s launched by a reputable market participant, we think it’s a positive development for the industry.”
In other words, the inclusion of asset classes within the crypto sphere might help to increase some level of confidence for current and future investors. What do you think about Goodbody’s take on Buterin’s comment?
