Cardano's Hoskinson Warns About The Unfair Representation on Wikipedia From An Editor

Charles Hoskinson, the founder of 14the largest cryptocurrency by market cap, that has lost 98% of its value since its ATH in January 2018, took to YouTube to complain about getting a fair representation on Wikipedia.

In his video, he talks about the community members having issues with editing the proof-of-stake (PoS) articles on the online encyclopedia. Hoskinson said,

“Cardano, in particular, has been having a tremendously difficult time getting a fair representation on Wikipedia. Anything we do whether it be Plutus, the extended UT XL model, Oroboros – the Cardano project itself or people affiliated with the project there is broad-scale commercial censorship occurring by the editors at Wikipedia.”

Currently, the Wikipedia page says, “The article Proof of stake, along with other articles relating to blockchains and cryptocurrencies, is currently subject to active community-authorized general sanctions.”

“Existential danger to an industry”

Hoskinson, who also co-founded the second largest network Ethereum, said it is just another example of “existential danger to an industry,” which is “controlled by a few people who are “incredibly biased” and “not accountable to anyone else.”

He has been referring here to David Gerard specifically whose anti-crypto behavior Hoskinson said is “going on for years,” since the Ethereum days.

Hoskinson might be the latest one to complain about the “non-coiner” but not the only one, as in the past Decred had a similar issue.

Hoskinson says it’s unfair when they have been mentioned by the US Congress, as the “most cited of all the peer views,” and “historically have had a market cap larger than SpaceX.”

Just warning about “ridiculous steaming shitpile”

While replying to a Twitter user, Hoskinson argues that Cardano’s competitors that are much smaller in size, have pages while they are not allowed to have is “censorship.”

He further said Wikipedia “won't explain the standard,” but Gerard refuted these claims by saying, “The problem is not that nobody told you, it's that you didn't like the answer.”

“These are comments directly from a Wikipedia editor commercially censoring us. He also wrote an anti-crypto book. But I'm sure he's being fair and balanced about Cardano content,” pointed out Hoskinson on Gerard’s comment that “the (crypto) space would best be advanced by not existing,” and as such he is “warning others about the ridiculous steaming shitpile.”

Meanwhile, Wikipedia highlights that individuals with a conflict of interest are “strongly advised not to directly edit the article.”
