The tensions are mounting in the Ethereum [ETH] developer The field after a few minutes of four private meetings held in Prague at the beginning of this month was leaked on the GitHub website. The meetings included some of the main developers who were present at the DevCon 4 conference, an annual meeting for Ethereum developers.
The nature and the exclusivity of this meeting have scared several Ethereum developers who are not happy about not being informed about the meeting event as they Ethereum network it is a public blockchain whose development is both open-source and community-driven.
"I'm really very angry about this situation," said Afri Schoedon, Head of Ethereum Development, working with Parity Software Development Company, an organization focused on creating applications for the Ethereum ecosystem. Schoedon is one of several developers who were not present during these meetings.
According to Alexey Akhunov, one of the developers present at the four meetings, "It was an ad hoc meeting," he said. However, this excuse was not enough for Schoedon, who replied during a Friday call from the developer asking "how do you get Joseph Lubin and Vitalik Buterin in the same room in an ad hoc manner." Joseph Lubin and Vitalik Buterin, Ethereum co- founders were also present in some of these meetings.
In a recent developer call, early Saturday morning, ETH developers have long discussed the effects of this problem. Apparently, Akhunov, apparently, one of the organizers of the private meetings declared during yesterday's call that "it was an ad hoc meeting in Prague and that's why it was not announced. nothing substantial happened, so there's still a lot to discuss. "Actually I was one of the people who asked not to publicize it before doing any work."
Some have accused the Parity organization of Schoedon of organizing what is said to be planning to develop a block-block ETH competitor. Tit could be why he was not invited to these meetings. Since it is the most vocal against private meetings, some developers think that it is selling a conspiracy theory simply because it has been excluded from the meetings.
The minutes of the meetings were "leaked" by Greg Colvin, a self-proclaimed counselor in the Ethereum community on Fridays. The meetings seemed to suggest that developers are looking for ways to accelerate the implementation of functionality on Ethereum MainNet so as to implement future code improvements faster.
During one of the meetings, the developers discussed a previously unexplored hard-fork Ethereum 1.x whose release is scheduled for June 1stst, 2019.
