The founder of Ethereum Vitalik Buterin came under severe criticism of his approach, which allegedly hindered the development of Ethereum. The detonator was practically striking when he called cryptocurrency prediction as damaging our young industry.
Too optimistic predictions of cryptocurrencies are not good the whole ecosystem, which arose around cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology.
Ignores the roadmap?
Moreover, Buterin used enough demagogic means to criticize of predictions, which did not find a positive response among the rational cluster of technological pioneers around the world.
For his criticism he chose a trio of several years old contributions, one of which was from John McAfee. He predicted that by the end of 2020 Bitcoin would be $ 1,000,000, he could hardly think seriously. Especially when he put his penis at stake.
This is why I think digging up over-confident predictions people made 2-5 years ago that turned out horribly wrong and laughing at them is a great custom to have.— vitalik.eth (@VitalikButerin) April 6, 2020
We need at least social incentive to say things that are sane, and we need to be reminded of everyone's fallibility. https://t.co/UDkDLKkypi
The response was not long in coming, and Gabor Gurbacs, who with twenty-two thousand followers on Twitter, is barely one of the insignificant critics. Gurbacs works for the analytical company VanEck, so he took the comment very heartily.
Your ETH development and timeline predictions were consistently wrong. Maybe start with self-accountability?— Gabor Gurbacs (@gaborgurbacs) April 6, 2020
