According to Tom Lee of Fundstrat, Bitcoin will go through the same stages of development as technology companies from Silicon Valley and the Creator of Ethereum, Vitalik Buterin, believes that the shift from transaction fees, once block fees stop being issued, will create a number of significant security and verification problems for blockchains that utilize Proof-of-Work (PoW).
Joseph Lubin, founder of the Consensys startup, expressed his hope that the Chinese digital currency will interact with many blockchains, including the ethereum. While Mark Yusko, CEO of the Morgan Creek Foundation, believes that it is time to resume buying Bitcoins now. He stressed that investors should give up Amazon shares and increase capital investments in the first cryptocurrency.

The creator of the C++ programming language, Bjørn Straustrup, complained that his brainchild plays a key role in the functioning of Bitcoin. Speaking in Lex Freedman’s podcast, Straustrup said that mining uses too much energy and that Bitcoin serves criminals.
