Charles Hoskinson: “Cryptocurrencies are going to stay.”
Charles Hoskinson, founder of Cardano and CEO of IOHK, talked about current and upcoming collaborations, Cardano and cryptocurrency market future, etc on in his latest Surprise #AMA.
He discussed Shelley and Daedalus releases, talked about the partnership with New Balance, possible snapshot approaches.
Besides the current partnerships, Charles also confirmed that Cardano will work with the University of Wyoming: “In fact we are putting together something really special,” noting that they will announce about it later.
Answering to one of the users questions about why Cardano is so low on Coinmarketcap, Charles said:
“Is it, we are higher than like 3000 other tokens.” He also added that there is lots of work to do, many things to be built.
Underlining that it’s “a horrible time “for crypto market, he noted: “5 years from now everything is going to be a lot better for everybody and cryptocurrencies are going to stay because young people want them to stay.”
What’s more, he mentioned that anyone under 25 will more likely purchase a crypto than a stock or bond: “I feel real good about our prospects, we got it all figured out.”
Another question was when people will be able to use Cardano easily without the need to understand all the computer language. The Cardano founder told a story of seeing people using Cardano without even realizing they used it or a cryptocurrency: “The magic is you use something and you don’t even know you are using it.”
Out of crypto sphere, there was also a question about why Charles is not active on Linkedin. The answer was quite concrete: “I hate Linkedin, it’s a terrible, terrible social network.”
