[A] huge issue that Ethereum has is with scaling. By putting “everything on the blockchain” (which stores everything forever) and dubbing it “the world computer,” you are going to end up with a very slow and clogged-up system.
By now the Ethereum bloat is so bad that cheaply running an individual node is practically impossible for a lay person.
