On GitHub, an anonymous blockchain expert named kaber2 published an outrageous analysis of the development and maintenance aspects of altcoin project Binance Smart Chain:
“Something so unprofessional is rarely seen”
Heavy criticism from the anonymous Blockchain expert for the altcoin project
On November 16, 2021, an anonymous account called kaber2 published seven points of criticism against the popular smart contracts platform Binance Smart Chain (BSC).
The first of the criticisms is the lack of code review: Patches are made without proper annotations. Therefore, it is difficult to find out what problems are solved by this or that commit. The ensuing criticism is that the BSC development process lacks beta testing: New updates make things worse. The team pays no attention to bug reports, even when the same issue is reported by thousands of developers. The critic dismissed the decision to disable peer-to-peer transaction broadcasts, as its implementation made the entire network highly centralized. In another critique, Kaber2 multiplies block size increase with reduced block time, accusing the largest CEX team of a “cash grab” approach as a result:
Binance wanted a quick hack to make some money. But he’s not willing to expand even modest resources to get this thing to actually work.
The anonymous expert who criticizes BSC and reveals that he has 4,000 Binance Coins (BNB) in his wallets, equal to about $2.35 million, is considering liquidating his BNB holdings. Before Cryptocoin. com, kaber2 is not alone in its views on the centralization of Binance. Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong and OKEx’s Jay Hao also accuse the Binance team of centralizing the smart contracts landscape.
