Searching for: "Charles Hoskinson"

CHARLES HOSKINSON 

Charles Hoskinson is the ex-co-founder of Ethereum (ETH), founder of Cardano (ADA), CEO of IOHK (Input Output Hong Kong). On the IOHK.IO's website, Cardano is described as "a blockchain platform with more advanced features than any protocol yet developed, and the first to evolve out of a scientific philosophy ". Charles Hoskinson has negative comments about Ethereum founder Vitalik Buterin and Ethereum developers. "The problem is that Vitalik is not a scientist. He never received formal training, so Ethereum has had a very difficult time getting Casper out of the lab and getting it into the protocol. If the Ethereum Foundation injected a few million dollars of funding to Cornell, to Elaine Shi, Rafael Pass, and the other people that the IC3, Casper would’ve probably been launched last year. Instead, the Ethereum developers just tried to solve this enormous problem without decomposing it. Every time they thought they had a solution, they realized that it was a false start and they had to regress and start something else. "
