Following Alexander's post comparing the differences between Ethereum's Serenity with Near Protocol, we decided to dive into the platform with the founders (Alexander Skidanov and Illia Polosukhin). The Near Protocol is a new project, and one of our goals is to find these projects first and educate our listeners on them.
We discuss Ethereum’s plan forSerenity (Sharding and Casper), why the Near team believes this release is not a 2020 event but likely 5 years or more away and why the Near Protocol can win first.
We are all well aware of the wide array of Ethereum competitors that have come and gone, and the competition from other public chains like Tezos, EOS, etc. Although, having these conversations are invaluable since 1) you learn the criticisms of the major platforms from outside teams, 2) You could potentially find the next big idea and 3) you keep an open mind on other ways to build these projects.
