Ethereum (ETH) co-founder Joseph Lubin said that the Ethereum blockchain will become about 1,000 times more scalable in 18 to 24 months. Lubin made his remarks during an interview with Cointelegraph on May 11.
Lubin specified that the development which will bring such a drastic scalability increase to the ecosystem will be Ethereum 2.0, also called Serenity. He explained that the development is divided into four phases and that eight groups are already developing clients for the new chain. Lubin also promised:
“In a small number of months, we should have a fully operational testnet and possibly, by the end of this year we’ll have a fully operational phase 0 Ethereum 2.0.”
