“What the hell is the point of Bitcoin?” asks Cardano founder Charles Hoskinson.
In a recent interview with Lex Fridman, Charles Hoskinson, the founder of Cardano and co-founder of Ethereum offered his views on Bitcoin. The 33-year-old was less than complimentary, calling it “slow” and in desperate need of an upgrade. Hoskinson also took issue with the recent Bitcoin conference in Miami, comparing the whole thing to a ridiculous religious movement.
“I can’t for the life of me understand, what the hell is the point of Bitcoin?” asked Hoskinson.
But while Bitcoin has proven itself an adaptable blockchain with a decade of history, many within the crypto industry have significant questions about the “point” of Hoskinson’s own project, Cardano.
A week before this interview aired, Vitalik Buterin sat down with Fridman for a lively discussion. The Russian-Canadian programmer was asked about Cardano, and whether or not he thought Hoskinson’s project had a future.
