In recent months, the second cryptocurrency as market cap, Ethereum, has become the target of multiple criticisms due to scalability issues. The topic was frequently discussed because of the fact that Vitalik Buterin stated that the network is very crowded.
It is true that Ethereum is experiencing congestion, as network usage exceeds 94%. As a result, running applications becomes costly. However, the biggest problem of cryptocurrency seems to be its source of power.
According to information from the Ethereum Foundation, Sharding will be launched by January 2020.
Currently, Ethereum (ETH) cryptocurrency is trading at around $ 180, registering an increase of $ 10 in the last week.
