Too Long; Didn't Read

The main reason for the Ethereum scalability problem is the network protocol that each node in the network has to process each transaction. Currently, it can only process 12-15 transactions per second. The key challenge of scalability is finding a way to achieve all three at the base layer. The design choices of Bitcoin and.
