Criticized These Altcoins! –

Leading altcoin Ethereum (ETH) is considered the most important name in DeFi in the Blockchain world. However, Andre Cronje, who is considered the father of DeFi, criticizes Ethereum (ETH) on some issues. In addition, Avalanche (AVAX), an Ethereum competitor, is also receiving criticism. On the other hand, Cronje also explains what she likes!

“I don’t like side-chains, Layer-2s and sub-nets”

Andre Cronje is a key figure in the Yearn.Finance (YFI) protocol. It is also one of the most influential developers in the decentralized finance (DeFi) segment. Cronje slaps all the major ‘horizontal’ scaling technologies with a single nozzle. DeFi’s father shared a meme on Twitter about scalability add-ons for major smart contract platforms. From the post, Cronje is not a big fan of Ethereum (ETH) and Avalanche (AVAX) scaling.

Namely, Ethereum’s (ETH) second-layer networks such as Andre Cronje, Optimism, Arbitrum, Boba and Metis, Avalanche’s (AVAX) sub-nets and Polygon’s (MATIC) side-chains, ‘on demand’ says there can be no alternative to scaling Tier-1 blockchains.

Why does DeFi’s dad love this altcoin project?

However, Cronje highlights the importance of Fantom’s (FTM) ‘vertical’ approach to scaling blockchain throughput. Because, he says, it does this without sacrificing decentralization, speed, and cost efficiency.

In addition, Cronje praises the Phantom Virtual Machine (FTM) as the promising technological developments of Fantom. The father of DeFi highlights FTM substrates, flat storage and parallel operations. According to him, this is what developers should focus on rather than creating NFT markets, GameFi platforms and metaverses.

AmkNews.comAs you follow, there are allegations that Cronje is returning to the Fantom (FTM) ecosystem and the DeFi ecosystem. In fact, these claims have already been a positive catalyst for FTM and YFI prices. At press time, FTM was trading at $0.2893, up 6.19% according to CoinMarketCap data. YFI, on the other hand, recorded an increase during the day, but then erased its earnings. It is currently changing hands at $8,307.

What makes Phantom (FTM) special?

Unlike mainstream EVM-based Blockchains, Phantom (FTM) prioritizes ‘vertical scaling’. Rather than creating an additional layer (side-chain or L2 network) for off-chain transactions, this approach focuses on organic increase in L1 throughput.

This approach does not need several Blockchains to interact with each other. For example, there is this kind of relationship between Arbitrum and Ethereum, Boba Network and BNB Chain. So this makes Phantom operations safer.
