Ethereum Foundation researcher Justin Drake caused quite the stir earlier this month when he said that for Ethereum 2.0 (a.k.a. ETH 2) to launch properly, developers would need until at least Jan. 2021. This comment was controversial because, for months, investors and other stakeholders in the cryptocurrency industry were certain the launch would take place in July or August of this year.
That’s not to say that Drake was promoting “FUD.” The reason why he suggested the launch should be in Q1 2021 at the earliest is that he had concerns about the security of Ethereum if the upgrade was rushed.
