Brock Pierce is the co-founder of crypto venture fund DNA and chairman of the Bitcoin Foundation and a famous EOS backer.
He’s recently joined the list of people who are offering their opinions on the future of some of the most important cryptos for 2019, and they look pretty optimistic.
He talked about the current state of crypto including some of the most important coins: Ethereum (ETH), EOS, Tron (TRX) and Cardano (ADA).
ETH needs to scale soon
He told CNBC’s Crypto Trader that Ethereum needs to scale this year to remain a front runner in the industry.
“If Ethereum doesn’t solve scaling this year, Ethereum’s going to have major long-term problems. Now’s the time…”
He continued and explained that “I don’t think the market’s going to wait, with all of these other call it ‘generation 3’ blockchains coming into the market. Ethereum is still the leading platform in the world for smart contracts. It has more developers building on it than anyone else.”
EOS is not going anywhere
We already said that Pierce is a supporter of EOS and he’s sticking by his claims. The man is expecting solutions for EOS’ RAM and CPU issues to come next month.
He believes that the team behind EOS has a lot of money and the most advanced chain regarding scalability.
Talking about praising EOS, they recently released an official announcement, revealing the upgraded EOSIO version 1.6.0. This brings a higher transaction speed by 35% which is pretty impressive.
Tron and Cardano also strong competitors
He said that these two coins TRX and ADA are also strong competitors that are worth being watched throughout this year.
Indeed, Justin Sun has some pretty bold plans for Tron in 2019 and considering that most of his plans for 2018 ended up becoming a reality, things are more than optimistic this year as well.
