Ethereum’s true believers think the world’s second-largest blockchain can still be all-encompassing. Others think a more-focused path would be best.
That was the tension on display at Day 1 of the ConsenSys-organized Ethereal Summit NY, a Blockchain Week gathering held at Pioneer Works in Red Hook, Brooklyn on Friday.
Earlier in the day, Messari founder Ryan Selkis offered a counterpoint. If ethereum, he argued, truly reinvents finance, that would be plenty.
“If you think about ethereum as programmable money and decentralized finance (DeFi) applications, that’s probably good enough,” Selkis argued.
