Popular crypto analyst believes layer-2 projects that are built on Ethereum (ETH) will dominate crypto payments in 2023.
Guy from the Coin Bureau tells about how crypto will grow in popularity this year.
“My fifth prediction is that crypto payments will be more common in 2023,” This will happen again due to a combination of better frontends and regulatory clarity. This will increase liquidity and, most importantly, an increase in the scalability that finally allows crypto payments to be possible.
Guy claims layer-2s will play an important role in increasing the adoption of cryptocurrency payments. Layer-2s, crypto projects, are designed to increase the number of transactions per second that a smart-contract platform can process.
“This prediction was based on a series of headlines I saw last summer about Vitalik Buterin, Ethereum founder. He said that layer-2s in Ethereum would power crypto payments. This makes sense, given that Ethereum is the most secure payment system base layer other than Bitcoin.
He believes that the rise of layer-2 dominance in crypto payments will be more likely as a result of an upcoming upgrade to the smart contract platform Ethereum. The Ethereum Improvement Plan 4844 (EIP 4844), is a proposal to improve the blockchain’s scalability via “Shardblob transactions”.
In addition, developers will implement the Ethereum improvement plan, or EIP-4844, sometime next year. EIP 4844 is an EIP that will increase the scalability and performance of Layer-2s on Ethereum. It can be used to increase their scalability by as much as 10x or 100x. Because most Layer-2s process thousands of TPS already, this increase will bring them up to par with Visa.
