One of the ways Hoskinson said that eth was better than bitcoin was the flexible development culture associated with it. A good depth evolution was one of the advantages he referred to amongst others.

Any faults found in the ethereum network are fixable. There are no issues that are locked into the network. This is what makes development in the blockchain so flexible.

An example of this is Ethereum 2.0. A development that has been in the pipeline for a while now. It is meant to replace the current network. And in doing so, solve the bottlenecks that come with using the network. Making it cheaper to send coins even in high traffic times.

The upgrade is also going to help with scalability and security. Making the whole network much more secure for users.

This is being developed by teams across the entire eth ecosystem.
