- Charles Hoskinson continues to take a jab at EOS
- Cardano’s “blockchain in a box” approach
- ADA down nearly 7 percent at $0.0768
Charles Hoskinson, Cardano Founder and Ethereum Co-founder takes a dig at EOS yet again. The hate-hate relationship between two altcoins is nothing new as this time Hoskinson said EOS has no interesting ideas and people need to bring more rigor in crypto space.
Had EOS released a whitepaper like Harmony: https://t.co/fUiN9t0Bcd then I would have least said hey had some interesting ideas. I really wish people brought more rigor and made better use of active research in their product development.

“there is strong evidence in the space – the amount of money you raise doesn’t really have a lot to do with your ability to succeed.”
He had also said that EOS ICO had many fundamental faults, adding,
“It was egregious to the core.”
Just last month, Hoskinson criticized them again as he said,
“This is a stark contrast to the development you see with things like EOS or with Ethereum with Casper, where they kind of adopt this lone samurai viewpoint.”
Previously in March 2018, Hoskinson had clarified his reasons for dissing EOS,
“There is no fight with EOS. Its EOS directly attacking us and having mobs of muppets spam our channels. I don't care about Dan's idiocy or his followers. I just can't let him lie about our protocols and academic integrity.”
Daniel Larimer, the co-founder of EOS has also taken his own share of jabs at Cardano.
Cardano’s “blockchain in a box” Approach
In the meantime, Cardano’s commercial arm, EMURGO has announced the launch of a Cardano (ADA) blockchain explorer called Seiza. It will enable developers to build on Cardano blockchain and stake pool operators to run stake pools without having to set up a full node. Seiza allows ADA users to gain access to the data about all open source blockchain related information.
Moreover, in his recent live stream, Hoskinson shared how a self node setup is the best way to implement a Testnet.
“It basically bootstraps your own genesis block, which can be ultimately used to demonstrate the cryptocurrency working on your computer.”
He further shared that Cardano is performing a “blockchain in a box” approach to testnet the Haskell wallet backend with the Rust node. Cardano’s is slowly making advancement in Shelley phase that aims to bring 100 percent decentralization to the Cardano network.
On the price front, 10th largest cryptocurrency by market cap of $1.9 billion is down nearly 7 percent at $0.0768.
