Cardano CEO Charles Hoskinson Shares Thoughts on Hyperledger Relationship



Cardano ADA

Charles Hoskinson, who is the CEO and founder of IOHK, as well as the leader of a team behind Cardano (ADA) cryptocurrency, recently held an AMA session in Toronto. The AMA took place on October 17th, and numerous investors and crypto enthusiasts used the opportunity to ask various questions.

Cardano’s possible collaboration with Hyperledger

The event covered quite a few subjects, from IOHK split with Cardano Foundation, over ADA markets, to Hoskinson’s thoughts about cooperation with Hyperledger. Additionally, participants also wanted to know what Hyperledger projects can Cardano contribute to in the future.

Hoskinson answered this by praising Hyperledger, and stating that there are a lot of great projects currently in development. He especially named two of them — Fabric and Sawtooth. He also mentioned Cardano’s team already being well-acquainted with the team behind Fabric, but not as much when it comes to Sawtooth.

Furthermore, Hoskinson praised Fabric project’s leader, Christian Cash. Cash is also leading IACR and, according to Hoskinson, is an excellent guy to have dinner with. Additionally, Hoskinson praised him for being one of the most prominent experts in distributed systems in the world. Following this, Hoskinson also addressed Cash’s project, stating that it is well-thought and well-constructed, as well as persuasive for permission ledgers.

He even stated that Hyperledger’s team seems to be interested in collaborating with Cardano, to an extent. In case that such collaboration does come to pass, Hoskinson mentioned several ideas. These include a new, Enterprise version of Ouroboros, but also another version of Ouroboros which would have probabilistic finality, and several others.

What lies in Cardano’s future?

Hoskinson then talked about the new upcoming developments for Cardano’s ecosystem. Earlier, he announced the release of multiple videos regarding the Shelly project. This time, however, he also announced that Cardano’s new update, version 1.4 is currently ahead of schedule. Thanks to this, it will soon enter a testing stage.

A similar announcement came recently from IOHK, claiming that Daedalus 0.11.1 and Cardano 1.3.1 can be expected soon.

The community seems to have been pleased with these answers, with many of them being convinced that ADA will dominate the world someday. Others have praised Hoskinson for being open and willing to answer their questions.

At the moment, Cardano seems to be doing rather well. Numerous new updates are on their way, while ADA itself still holds the rank of 9th largest coin by market cap. At the time of writing, its price is at $0.0757 per coin, albeit with a slight drop of 1.10% in the last 24 hours.

Liquidity Dividends Protocol

Since 2017, cryptocurrency has experienced both the crazy highs and the crazy lows with fortunes being made and lost overnight.  That volatility is one of the main reasons why cryptocurrency has been relatively slow to gain mass adoption.  In addition to volatility, another concern for many is the lack of security and regulation in the market.  This can be seen through the countless exchange hacks and rug pulls that seem to occur on a weekly basis.  In order for cryptocurrency to move into the next stage of maturity and bring on mass adoption, investors and users will need to feel secure knowing that their funds are safe.  One promising organization that may have the perfect solution is Liquidity Dividends Protocol (LID).

What is Liquidity Dividends Protocol?

Liquidity Dividends Protocol is an up and coming organization that provides locked liquidity services to cryptocurrency projects that launch their offerings through ERC-20 tokens.  It lets non-custodial pre-sales lock liquidity of a token in a trustless manner through Uniswap.  This locking process will prevent every investor’s worst nightmare of seeing their hard-earned money disappear through “rug pull” scams that are designed to remove liquidity out of DeFi projects.

This year has seen an explosion of interest in Uniswap and DeFi projects.  Many investors have generated enormous returns on investments, but many have experienced the pain of being duped.  Below are three reasons why LID Protocol is poised to be a massive winner in…
