Charles Hoskinson Of Cardano (ADA) Thinks Tron (TRX) Should Switch To Mantis

This Thursday, Charles Hoskinson, the founder of InputOutput and Cardano sat down for a podcast in which he discussed several topics including his team extending a hand to projects such as Tron and Ethereum to work together.

Speaking of Tron, he stated that the project forked Ethereum java. He believes that while the engineers involved with the code were competent, the Ethereum java client is slightly outdated and is not essentially created from a technical dev or security viewpoint. He stated the client as “not the best code to build a project from”. Consequently, Hoskinson suggested that the code might require iterations and cleaning.

“It needs some iterations some cleaning. From where it came and how many people have touched it. So when we reached out to Tron we said look guys our Scala code base is just absolutely beautiful, it’s extremely concise, it’s well-tested. It’s been security audited by an external auditor.”

He further believes that if the Tron wants to build a project by forking a code, the team can take the Mantis code. He stated that the code is modularized, henceforth, it possesses a pluggable virtual machine and a pluggable consensus protocol.

This is not the first time Hoskinson has given this advice. In June 2018, he Tweeted:


Hoskinson was one of the eight co-founders of Ethereum, but due to an issue with its governing structure, Hoskinson left in June 2014. He then went on to build Input|Output, which created Ethereum Classic (ETC).

A group of developers spent seven months building Mantis, a unique Ethereum Classic client, from scratch. Hoskinson addressed Justin Sun and told him that Mantis would better suit Tron.
