Justin Drake, a researcher at the Ethereum Foundation, discusses Ethereum’s current standing and future prospects in an interview with Blockworks. He mentions the memetic potential of Ether becoming the scarcest money on Earth and highlights the importance of economic security and economic bandwidth for blockchains. Drake also mentions the consistent daily deposits of ETH into Ethereum and the healthy security ratio. While he acknowledges that ether has underperformed relative to bitcoin, he speculates that there may be a “flippening” in the next bull run. Despite ether’s middling year, Drake remains optimistic about Ethereum’s future.
