Justin Bons, Cyber Capital founder and CIO, has taken to Twitter to voice his latest criticism of the Solana blockchain. Bons says he does not see the point of Solana's blockchain in the long term.

While agreeing with the fact that the Solana blockchain might be scalable, he claims this is because it keeps making dangerous trade-offs against decentralization.

Bons believes that Solana will never be able to compete with truly sharded blockchains that achieve greater scalability while preserving decentralization.

This wouldn't be the first time Bons would be voicing his criticism regarding the Solana blockchain. In October last year, days after the Solana blockchain recorded a six-hour outage, Bons criticized the network in a long thread of tweets.

Aside from his criticism regarding the outages the blockchain has suffered in recent times, Bons also stated that the Solana team was "unnecessarily centralizing the network."

He claims that becoming a validator on Solana was expensive, as it requires $6 million to run a validator profitably. He makes mention of Solana's proof of history (POH) — a clock before consensus — and Turbine — a block propagation protocol — as trading off decentralization for scalability.
