Interesting possibilities in 2019. But accelerated roadmaps and timelines make sense If more developers are involved, otherwise it's a system already with vulnerabilities probably adding more because they want speed over quality. Happens all the time everywhere, but not always good thing.
The other interesting tidbit is renting costs for the storage of smart contracts. I understand why they need to do it. 1TB isn't something most people are going to want to download as a miner or eventual staker. But if you build a dapp and have to pay digitalocean for the front end web mobile app portion; then pay for gas; and pay for storj or ipfs for regular file storage; and then pay to rent space for your smart contract ...
At some point it's an expensive experiment and gets into why would anybody build real applications on it ? Most companies and startups aren't going to benefit a ton compared to the costs of these new systems. And it's already a challenge to get normal people to want to use blockchain and crypto.
