ETH devs decided to delay the difficulty bomb by simply increasing the inflation when most of the other coins on the market try to reduce it. Let’s see what this will bring for the coin in the coming ETH News.
The recent debate regarding Ethereum’s difficulty bomb is finally done and there is a consensus finally getting reached. According to the ETH Devs, the difficulty bomb will receive another delay. The details about the decision are really scarce as the public call between the developers experienced a number of technical issues so now Pegasys’s Tim Beiko confirmed that the developers agreed to push the difficulty bomb by 4 million blocks.
According to the estimates, the goal of the difficulty bomb will emerge in about 600 days which means in about two years. In order words, the bomb will explode once again in 2021/2022. However, the PoS Beacon Chain will also go through earlier in 2020. It is also expected that the inflation will grow by about 2,000 ETH per day when the fork happens and right now the number of ETH per day is about 11,600 which means that it is expected to grow back to 13,600 which is the same number that the miners are seeing before the bomb was initiated.
One thing that is important to note is that all ETH Devs did all of the decision making among themselves without the community. One of the decisions included the proposed name Melting Glacier but the name was later changed to Mountain Glacier. The name still has the same message which is what ‘’the difficulty bomb is also known as.’’ The increased difficulty of mining could also take up more energy which will make it less profitable.
However, once the PoS algorithm kicks in, it will remove the need for miners and Etheruem will become environmentally friendly. Unfortunately, Ethereum’s founder Vitalik Buterin believes that the PoS is far away and that reaching this goal will take years. Instead, the ETH devs will introduce a hybrid of PoS and PoW but the two types won’t be in direct contact with one another. The problem is very complex and solving it will take a lot of time.
