Cardano CEO Gives Video Update

Cardano CEO Gives Video Update

In his yesterday’s impromptu AMA, Charles Hoskinson, founder of Cardano (ADA), talks about the function of ADA tokens, the Cardano treasury, recent price drops, and a range of general topics.

The CEO explains the slow pace of Cardano development by emphasizing the importance of peer review in protocol development.

I think it’s incredibly important to differentiate the development of software from the development of protocols and scientific endeavours. Protocols don’t come along very often... Why should we then constraint the development of something that could be around for decades to the same forcing factors that we would look at with a cellphone application or with a web application?

Charles Hoskinson, founder of Cardano

In response to a question regarding the function of ADA token, he elaborates that the token has many different features, including:

  • store of value;
  • a computation token;
  • serves as a stake in Cardano’s Proof-of-Stake system;
  • and gives voting power in Cardano’s treasury management decisions.

Charles explains that Cardano users will be able to vote on funding a project proposed by the Cardano team with money in a collective account (treasury), accumulated as the result of inflation.

Charles says that he is not at all concerned by the recent crash of the market and encourages long-term investors to look at crypto at the macroscale.

The founder of Cardano goes further to talk about what blockchains bring to the table. He lays special emphasis on the need for a credential identity system that Cardano seeks to provide. Such systems will open opportunities such P2P lending for people who are unfairly deprived of them.

In a lengthy 2-hour AMA, Charles shares his views and ambitions on a variety of topics such as dealing with stress, world peace, privacy, AI, and even giraffe neck aches.

Prominent Analyst: Bitcoin (BTC) is Likely to Surge to 400k, Does This Mean the Bottom is in?

Bitcoin’s price action over the past year and a half has been quite the rollercoaster, with many investors incurring nearly instant wealth in late-2017, followed by tremendous losses for those who continued to hold their Bitcoin or other crypto investments. Despite this, those who held and are still holding are doing so either because of a fundamental belief in the technology, or at the very least a belief that the markets will eventually surge back to, or above, their previously established all-time-highs. That being said, recent comments from a prominent analyst about the potential Bitcoin’s price has to surge significantly higher will certainly be reassuring for embattled crypto investors who have been discouraged by the recent market conditions. Bitcoin (BTC) Drops to $4,000 as Support Level is at Risk of Being Broken At the time of writing, Bitcoin is trading down over 1% at its current price of $4,015, just a hair above its recently established support level at $4,000. Yesterday, Josh Rager, a popular cryptocurrency trader on Twitter, explained that the lack of buying pressure above $4,000 is likely to lead BTC’s price to $3,500, which may be reached soon if the crypto’s bulls are unable to keep Bitcoin’s price above $4,000. “$BTC Weekly Chart. Gandalf is holding $BTC below the mid $4,200 level. Bitcoin shall not pass the current resistance. So my target for the next drop has an aim at previous support near mid $3,500s,” he explained. $BTC Weekly Chart Gandalf is holding $BTC below the mid $4,200 level Bitcoin shall not pass the current resistance So my target for the next drop has an aim at previous support near mid $3,500s pic.twitter.com/BGUWMmAl4V — Josh Rager (@Josh_Rager) March 20, 2019 Naeem Aslam, the chief markets analyst at Think Markets U.K., recently spoke about the importance of the $4,000 level, noting that it will set the trend for which direction the markets head next. “Questions are being asked constantly when it comes to Bitcoin’s battle with the $4000 mark. The result of this battle sets the tone for a bullish or bearish trend,” he explained, further noting that this price level has become a “matter of death or life for crypto traders.” Could Bitcoin Surge to $400,000 Next? Although Bitcoin’s instability around its current price levels does seem to be significant in the short term, in the long term it may be very insignificant, as Aslam believes that BTC could eventually surge as high as $400k. “I personally believe that each Bitcoin can go up as much as $400K and if history repeats itself, this number is not a fool’s paradise. This is a simple math calculation: approximate percentage projection of the price which we experienced during the last bull run,” he bullishly explained. Keeping that in mind, for traders who are waiting to buy the bottom, the risk / reward ratio simply doesn’t make sense. Ryan Selkis, a popular figure within the crypto industry, spoke about the absurdity of trying to purchase a bottom when there is such a massive potential upside for BTC in a recent tweet. “I’d be extremely surprised if the bottom wasn’t in for this $BTC bear market. If you’ve been on the sidelines, what are you waiting for if not now? If you’re a long-term bull, the 5 year EV is 25-50x, and you’re going to wait to time an entry that’s 20% more attractive?” He noted.
