The link just shows a blank page for me, but eliminating pointers because they're too hard for some people to understand is retarded. Oh well, there's always assembly language.

You can stick to C.

They literally removed the pointer.... So no address to reference to....

They lighter and easier to write code the better. New technologies like block chain development will still rely heavily on languages like C++ so the easier to use the better.
