As more users enter this space, we all see that there is a barrier of entry due to the gas fees to use Ethereum. One of the ideas proposed by other blockchains for decentralized apps is the concept of cross-chain interactions. The way i see it: The Ethereum chain is sort of like an informational highway, because there are so many new users (and more importantly, transactions) before this “highway” can expand, traffic is building up.
There is doubt from some users in this scaling, that Ethereum 2.0 will take too long to solve these issues; as the finished transition is likely years away from completion. Personally, I am conscious of the fact that we are already living in the world where Eth validators are processing transactions and earning Eth (2.0) that is locked until the transition is complete and that this concept is scaling Ethereum already; whether people realize it or not.
Back to my analogy and the topic of this thread: Cross-chain interactions could be similar to taking an off-ramp from this highway/blockchain onto another highway/blockchain. Multiple chains interacting between each other is a way of mitigating the congestion of the Ethereum chain. I am interested in what people’s thoughts are on how this concept could play out as well as if developers in the(se) protocol(s) have any current plans to implement/integrate other chains into the Sushiswap ecosystem.
