FTX CEO Sam Bankman-Fried Makes Prediction for Ethereum (ETH) Merge, Warns of Potential Rough Transition

FTX CEO Sam Bankman-Fried is giving his ideas on what may occur when Ethereum (ETH) completes its extremely anticipated merge to proof-of-stake (PoS).

In an interview with CNBC, the crypto billionaire says that whereas in the long run the merge shall be useful for Ethereum, it’s not unreasonable to count on some turbulence when it first happens.

“I believe long run it’s most likely going to thrilling for the Ethereum group. I believe it’s going to permit considerably sooner and cheaper processing and transactions… 

I do assume that it’s going to be – as all huge transitions are – slightly bit rocky at first. I believe there’s going to be some messy exercise round when it occurs. I believe that’s kind of inevitable, each long run and doubtless even medium time period.”

Bankman-Fried says he expects a certain quantity of confusion and lack of preparedness amongst these within the Ethereum group, which may trigger some technical difficulties to start with. The CEO predicts some protocols will “flub” the transition, and a cleanup will then be vital.

“I believe that first of all, there are going to be some forks of this. As you have a look at some individuals who need a proof-of-work (PoW) variant on it, though I believe everyone seems to be anticipating that the majority of the exercise in transition to be a proof-of-stake Ethereum by means of this merge. Obviously, there’s going to be rather a lot of folks within the ecosystem that should replace software program which have to begin processing the brand new chain.

Many of these are going to be promptly able to do it, some of these most likely aren’t. I count on that APIs are going to interrupt in ways in which folks didn’t fairly predict, and there’s going to must be bug fixes a minimum of on centralized entities…

It’s an enormous transition, and anytime that occurs, particularly when it’s simply not one firm doing it, when it’s a complete decentralized ecosystem and all of the decentralized and centralized entities in it attempt to transition abruptly, some individuals are going to flub the transition and take a while to wash it up.”
