According to reports, the Ethereum is considering Team EIP-2025 as an improvement, the next Ethereum Hard Fork “Istanbul” to introduce. The proposal has already led to a short period of time, to considerable Controversy among the developers, given that the inflation rate would temporarily rise.
According to the information from the last Ethereum Core Developer Meeting on 18. July was introduced by a developer of Ethereum Improvement Proposals (EIP) in 2025. The idea provides that for a period of 18 months, more Ether per Block is generated, wherein the increase of 0,0055 ETH per Block (a total of 136.400 ETH) to a funding organization should flow. This, in turn, would promote the development of the Ethereum Ecosystem. For the Core developers to the increased liquidity in the Form of the block can be rewards are a good thing, more to encourage Innovation. However, the proposal is criticized in the crypto-Community. It seems needless to say that not everyone likes the proposal because it would lead to a rise in the inflation rate.
One of the sharpest critics of the EIP 2025, the Gnosis researcher Eric Conner. This is because he has first pointed out that the EIP is pulled by 2025, when the EIP for Istanbul to be seriously considered. Conner claims that the train is absurd, and the community should not allow this to happen.
Spank chain CEO Ameen Soleimani – which operates an alternative financing mechanism called MolochDAO – was also one of the most well-known critics. He said that the increase of the block rewards for this purpose the appearance of Ethereum as a store of value will weaken.
Ryan Adams, the founder of the crypto-investment company the myth of Capital, Anthony Sassano, Marketing, SetProtocol, and David Hoffman, Chief of Operations at RealT Platform, all objected to the proposal. Andrew Redden, CTO of Groundhog Pay, summed up the General consensus of the community, which it called “The disaster of the EIP-2025”.
The main point of contention within the Community is, who gets the rewards and who manages, what they are used for. According to the EIP-2025, the additional rewards would be produced for 18 months and then set. In contrast to the block rewards, the additional funds would not go to the miners that secure the network, but to a separate organization. But who cares about the means?
There are legitimate concerns about the transparency in the distribution. Even James Hancock, who has submitted the proposal, there is no answer to this Problem and says that he is committed to know the best way to the organization of this medium. James proposes the establishment of DAO, in order to distribute the funds to the right projects, what will be transparent. Regardless, he has initiated an important debate. This involvement of the Community will ultimately determine the decision-making of the development team.
Ultimately, it all sound like much ADO about nothing. Looking at the notes of the Ethereum Core Meetings, so the proposal was not discussed in terms of the future. “There is nothing in the notes, suggesting that this is seriously considered is. The only indication is neutral, and the applicant made”said the developer, Udi Wertheimer, and added: “Even if I know that this proposal has no Chance to be accepted.”
