Anatoly Yakovenko, the co-founder of Solana, the leading altcoin with its own network, has issued a warning about starting a cold war between Ethereum (ETH) and other blockchain networks. Yakovenko stated that negative campaigns against protocols referred to as “ETH Killers” are damaging the ecosystem.
“SOL and ETH Can Coexist”
According to Yakovenko, creating such a narrative against Ethereum is causing harm to the ecosystem and threatening protocols with the idea of killing each other. Yakovenko emphasized that protocols can coexist without any problems with each other. “It is normal for effective technologies to have overlapping features and compete. I do not see a future where Solana succeeds and Ethereum somehow dies,” said the co-founder of Solana, highlighting the need to avoid using negative language against Ethereum.
Yakovenko also expressed a positive view of a technology called “Danksharding.” This technology is an Ethereum rollup scaling method that allows cheaper blocks to be added to the blockchain. Yakovenko predicts that Danksharding technology will have enough bandwidth to accommodate all of Solana’s data in the future.
Yakovenko’s remarks about Ethereum highlight the fact that SOL and the largest altcoin, ETH, can coexist and even overlap with each other, drawing the attention of the cryptocurrency world.
Continues to Stand Against Ethereum Competition
Despite the growing interest in Solana, Yakovenko warned community members against an unhealthy competition with the Ethereum protocol, referring to the MakerDAO issue. Rune Christensen, the co-founder and CEO of MakerDAO, received positive reactions from Solana supporters after announcing plans to fork the protocol to Solana Blockchain, claiming it would be the best move.
Yakovenko stated that this is generally a win-win situation and hopes that individuals in the Solana community will not turn it into a weapon against Ethereum.
In October, a member of the Ethereum community, jebus.eth, made an anti-Solana post, referring to the protocol as a coalition of poor and wealthy people who do not understand where value comes from or how it is created, but only know that things should be cheap. Yakovenko quickly responded to jebus.eth’s post, emphasizing that the Solana network aims to establish a completely decentralized digital space, enabling the free flow of communication and transactions without the control of capitalist intermediaries and state supervision.
