Forking Uncertainty


The community is still split over how best to resolve (or not resolve) the issues created by The DAO. While it seems a hard fork will take place, how should it be implemented? And if it is implemented, will we see those who have been against hard forking moving away from the Ethereum network? Perhaps the side that ‘loses’ will continue using the ‘pre-fork’ Ethereum protocol and we will see Ethereum split into two separate entities, each progressing along a different path with different development teams holding different ideals.

While a consenus-driven solution seemed pretty certain shortly after The DAO’s collapse, that certainty has been dispelled and Ethereum is now passing through an extremely uncertain period in its development. The impact that this is having on Ethereum’s price over recent days is clear.
