This blogpost came up spontaneously. One of our community members e-mailed Piotr some of these questions, and after some consideration, he decided to answer them - however, we believe that transparency and equal access to information are paramount for a healthy, thriving community. So we prepared this blogpost to share with the wider audience.
Some of you might have read some answers before in our AMAs - every other month, we get together to answer all questions our community has. AMAs are one of the most effective ways we have of gauging the community’s sentiment, their concerns, the things they are interested in, and more. However, these questions are a nice reminder to the larger Decentralized Ecosystem that Golem is more alive than ever, constantly striving for the best, and our commitment are still as strong as when the research for this adventure started, in 2015.
A bit of a long interview- although very interesting, read the first half of the Q&A with Piotr below - maybe you find one answer you’ve been looking for!
Q: How committed is Golem in using Ethereum? On the assumption of Ethereum not scaling in the short-medium term will you consider building on another protocol?
PJ: By design, Golem is platform-agnostic regarding the underlying smart contracts engine. We started the project with Ethereum in mind. Back then, it was the only project which offered smart contracts execution in a decentralized manner.
From our perspective, the situation hasn't changed all that much. Nowadays there is more variety in terms of protocols that enable smart contract implementation and execution, but in our opinion, Ethereum continues to be the platform that’s more adaptable to our project’s needs and, at the same time, has the most promising future.
I refer to the famous "scalability trilemma" diagram, in which ...
