7:00 Ethereum Issues The Ethereum network is still struggling with heavy congestion and high gas fees. High gas fees are a function of demand which means despite high fees, people still want it.
7:24 Proof of Work POW vs Proof of Stake POS POW, miners are the participants and those with most computational power (eg BTC and ETH.) POS, miners are more likely to win additional blocks if they have more staked (eg Ether, in the case of Ethereum.) Ethereum moving to POS from POW. Jury is out what is better. My concern is proof-of-stake relies on “proof” of how much “stake” users have and may not be fair.
8:35 ETH 2.0 (aka EIP 1559) Hope to be included in Ethereum "London" upgrade scheduled for July 2021 Testing is 99% done March 5 decision to include in London The proposal will also burn gas fees (paid in ETH) aka deflationary to ETH supply ⇪ Scarcity ⇪ Value

16:50 Price Predictions and Multiples MKT CAP FORECAST 2030
17:00 Conclusion #1 Cardano is vying to be a valid alternative to Ethereum Ethereum has a five year head start Ethereum has more developers Can they both coexist or will one replace the other?
18:00 Conclusion #2 Bitcoin is still the safest bet - lowest risk Future is uncertain for ADA and ETH
19:45 Conclusion #3 ADA has more potential upside over ETH based on my models but it has higher risk! If Ethereum pull of a successful EIP 1559 that would secure their position The future has many unknowns Market is pricing in a successful Mary Launch
