As previously discussed that there is no requirement of ETH for Ethereum. The users and investors seem to be dropping down the usage of Ethereum these days, as better alternatives have been provided. The EOS is one of the best competitors for Ethereum, which effectively works on the scalability issue that the Ethereum network is incapable of. The scalability bottleneck was witnessed by the cryptocurrency community when the popularity of Crypto kitties had blocked the entire network. It has been concluded by various experts, that the actual value proposition of Ether has no room in the Ethereum network. Also, the gas price concept of the Ethereum network is doomed to be unnecessary.
It must also be noted down that we incorporation of ether for Ethereum network has a lot of the technical implications. The cryptocurrency wallet and accounts must be designed in such a way that, the accommodate both Ether, as well as, the ERC20 protocol powered tokens. This is the case, as Ether is the native currency and the other ERC20 based tokens are different from it. In brief, the Ethereum network has no future, as even the prices have been continuously plummeting.
As the Ethereum network is slow, the decentralized applications which need faster transactional capabilities, would opt for the EOS blockchain platform and also the existing decentralized applications would quickly switch to EOS. Even the number of hacks and frauds have been increasing, in the Ethereum community. Most recently, a fake Instagram account of Vitalik Buterin, illicitly scammed few of its followers to send 37 ETH. Effective decentralization is unachievable, as Ethereum is inherently a Centralised one.
The Ethereum network has been falling, as many heated discussions are being carried on in the name of development. The separation of Ethereum Classic from Ethereum was one of the major incidents which broke the backbone of the network. As we all know, that things stay stronger and longer, only when they are connected and work collaboratively, not when hard forks are undertaken frequently. Vitalik Buterin has been steering the ship, and more recently, many irresponsible decisions have been taken, as no significant steps are being taken to tackle the scalability.
