Problems in Cardano camp as the CEO disagrees with foundation chairman

Cardano (ADA) has been one of the best blockchain projects so far. The organization runs on three different arms to make it a tremendous decentralized blockchain protocol. Three different bodies behind Cardano:  IOHK – headed by Charles Hoskinson, oversees the software development of the blockchain network, Emurgo, manages the upcoming projects under developments by Cardano; and Cardano Foundation – led by Micheal Parson, takes charge of Cardano’s ecosystem.

However, despite being governed by three different bodies, there seems to be a significant conflict in the blockchain project’s camp. Hoskinson recently via an open letter accused the Chairman of Cardano Foundation of carelessness, prejudice, and misuse of Cardano funds.

Hoskinson stated that the Foundation Chairman had been the obstacle towards the progress of it. In a video, the head has urged the community to support the movement towards the sacking of the Foundation chairman.

Further, in Cardano’s open letter, Parson was accused of neglecting his chairmanship obligations. Firstly, Parson employed his colleagues and relatives with little or no knowledge and qualifications to show.

The open letter further stated that cases of fraud were also found on Parson during his time as the chairman of Cardano Foundation. He as well has been accused of staying away from his duties as a Chairman of the foundation, of which he doesn’t interact or chat with the community.

After the open letter was passed out by Cardano, the community has gone to support the movement by raising a petition, and it states:

If you are a believer in the Cardano vision, an investor in the Cardano venture, or if you simply believe, regardless of the loose regulation of the crypto space, that we still deserve crypto leaders to be accountable and to be brought to justice, then you should sign the petition to help us to raise our voices and make Mr. Parsons take appropriate action.”

Cardano’s CEO, Hoskinson, replied via an interview (a video one) and reported that Parson’s negligence is affecting badly. Hoskinson has further stated that Emurgo and IOHK have been taking the bulk of the work to make sure the cryptocurrency still stands.

He also emphasized on the laxity of the foundation chairman stating that Cardano was called upon to Ethiopia for striking a good deal but couldn’t actualize. On the other hand, Cardano’s Foundation accused its other two bodies of trying to boycott the agreement. Hoskinson said,

We just lost it at that point and we said, “Look, we are not going to work with you guys on any capacity until you publish a fair use policy” [….] This is what our relationship has been like for the past year, where they haven’t really collaborated or cooperated with us on a lot of things, they spend money in odd ways which have no purpose to the ecosystem”

The CEO of Cardano also talked on the ‘unconcerned nature’ of Parson as he said,

For two years, he didn’t even put ‘Chairman of The Cardano Foundation’ on his LinkedIn page.”

Hoskinson noted that its new members in the foundation should be elected and the best option for Parson is to tender his resignation. Meanwhile, despite the launch of several projects on Cardano’s network such as Cardano crypto-debit card, Rust SDK, and Yoroi Wallet, the CEO stated that there are more projects to come that will boost ADA value in the future.

Now, whether the CEO and community will be able to make the chairman step out or not, remains a question. And yeah, nobody knows how much damage he might do before the rest of the Cardano army (the CEO and community) succeeds. Would the fear cause investors of stepping back from ADA, and ultimately affect its price? We all will get to know that shortly.

There has been a lot of renewed enthusiasm in the cryptocurrency market thanks mainly to Bitcoin’s strong move about 10,000.  Although Bitcoin continues to show its dominance, the altcoin market has yet to benefit from that rally.  A few of the largest altcoins remain popular but the rest of the market continues to lag behind.  In 2018, there was a lot of talk regarding a possible altcoin apocalypse where only the strong would survive.  That prediction appears to be playing out as expected.  Going forward, only the best projects that have a real world need will survive.  Crypto traders will have to spend a lot of their time doing proper research in order to find the best opportunities, just like in all financial markets.  One promising project that appears to have the makings of a future winner is KaratGold Coin.

Cryptocurrency has taken the world by storm during the last few years. An entirely new financial market was created almost overnight which has captured the imagination of all its participants. Cryptocurrency is even starting to attract institutional money from investment banks, hedge funds, and other proprietary trading firms. Despite the rapid growth, traders remain extremely frustrated by having to deal with the fragmented nature of centralized crypto exchanges.

A Change is Needed

When cryptocurrency first began, there weren’t many participants and the trading volume was relatively insignificant. But, over time, that has radically changed. Some tokens now have a capitalization in the billions and are being traded 24-7 by institutions all over the world. Despite the volume, significant problems exist with the current way that exchanges work. Some of those problems include the following:

  • Constant fear of hackers
  • Exchange manipulation
  • Fragmented liquidity
  • Risk of identity theft

One of the biggest issues regarding centralized exchanges is the risk of being hacked. These hack stories seem to always be circulating around the internet. While experienced traders may have the tools to avoid becoming a victim, potential new traders have zero interest in dealing with this. And it’s not just the small exchanges that are at risk. Even large exchanges, such as Mt. Gox and Binance, are subject to being hacked.

Another huge risk is having to deal with…

When Satoshi Nakamoto unveiled Bitcoin to the world, the dream was always for Bitcoin to serve as a new universal currency.  It would be free from the bureaucracy of governments.  And free from the tyranny of the old-world financial cartels.  Although the dream hasn’t yet materialized, it comes closer and closer with each passing day.

One of the biggest roadblocks for Bitcoin has been scalability.  At a speed of approximately 7 transactions per second, Bitcoin lags behind other cryptocurrencies like Ripple and global payment processors like Visa.  Many expect the lightning network to have a positive impact on Bitcoin’s TPS but until that comes to fruition, mass adoption will likely need another significant development.

Libra Currency Announcement

One development that could help pave the way toward mass adoption is the launch of the Libra currency.  Libra is expected to go live during the first half of 2020 according to Facebook’s June announcement.  According to Facebook, Libra will make sending money online cheaper and faster.  It will also have a hand in improving access to financial services, especially for the unbanked.  Given Facebook’s global reach, including many third world countries, providing financial access to the unbanked could provide a huge spark to global economies.  Additionally, it could provide the growth spark that cryptocurrency needs.

Facebook’s most popular messenger, WhatsApp, has approximately 1.5 billion monthly users.  This application is…
