On May 15, Buterin tweeted by referring to Bitcoin and Ethereum:
“If I were designing a new chain to live alongside Bitcoin and Ethereum, I would take all the political tradeoffs that BTC and ETH aren’t willing to take.”
This is why I actually have some respect for EOS and co. I *disagree* with DPoS but at least they're *trying* to develop a cohesive and principled alternative niche. — vitalik.eth (@VitalikButerin) May 15, 2020
However, Buterin holds significant weight in the blockchain industry, listed by Cointelegraph as the fifth most influential person in crypto and blockchain.
Likewise, he noted quadratic voting-based on-chain governance and all built-in cryptographic procedures as tradeoffs of interest. He also included on-chain oracles for all events, instead of ones that simple relay price moves.
He also mentioned potentially adding some form of identification on the network.

“Perhaps even an on-chain model of identity, at least for participants who want to participate in governance (non-governing actors would still be fully anon).”
Thus, he concluded:
“This is why I actually have some respect for EOS and co. I disagree with DPoS but at least they’re trying to develop a cohesive and principled alternative niche.”
