Prediction Of A Layer 2-driven Future
An anonymous user on Reddit has given his projection of what the future holds for Ethereum-based assets. According to him, L1 thrived because of an absence of competition, evidenced by attaining the sales phase while competition was still in the development phase.
He believes scaling and the perception of a better Blockchain would fast become a commodity. The future would mean even more competition in the L2, which is a good thing, considering the fact that they are decentralized.
He believes that there is a process for an L2 adoption and even though its not moving swiftly, they are already better options in terms of “reliability, decreasing fees, and increasing accessibility.” Despite all of these, the door is still open for development.
The user clearly believes Ethereum is unrivaled. In his own words, “Ethereum is and will be the only credibly neutral blockchain in existence.”
