Charles Hoskinson Shill-Checks Data, Says Cardano Tops Commits List, More than any Other Crypto Project
Recently, Ryan Selkis shared a dashboard with “25 token teams that ship code relentlessly.” The list has Bitcoin at the top followed by Ethereum and EOS. Binance Coin, Monero, Maker, Waives, and Chainlink are also among the top 10.
Down the 25 spot long list have Aragon, Gnosis, Melon, POA Network, and Spankchain respectively with no sign of Cardano (ADA).
Selkis is the co-founder of the Messari platform that works with the agenda to bring “transparency to the crypto economy.” The goal is to reportedly “help investors, regulators, and the public make sense of this revolutionary new asset class, and are building data tools that will drive informed decision making and investment.”
But it didn’t go well with Cardano creator and Ethereum co-founder Charles Hoskinson who took to Twitter to call out the “bias.”
Example of bias; we have more commits than any other project, yet we aren't even on his top 25 list of development activity. Always make sure to shill-check your information sources and trust sources you can self-verify https://t.co/oKp1v3H6ZJ https://t.co/bemAn1Ok4d

“Example of bias; we have more commits than any other project, yet we aren't even on his top 25 list of development activity. Always make sure to shill-check your information sources and trust sources you can self-verify https://github.com/input-output-hk .”
“Where is Cardano? We have more commits than everyone else?,” asked Hoskinson to which Slekis replied with, “I haven’t heard an update in a while. Let’s fix that! Want to do a live periscope show next week?”
Selkes further explained that
“This was about commits and known product releases combined. Totally subjective and not exhaustive on my end.”
Well, Hoskinson had more to say as he shared the development work ongoing with Cardano,
“40 academic papers, three clients (rust, Haskell and scala), three smart contract testnets, 4 major mainnet releases, 100,000+ community members, listed on 25+ exchanges, multiple formal specs in one year isn't activity?”
Well, Cardano enthusiasts have immense faith in this cryptocurrency and are expecting a bright future ahead as one such enthusiast commented,
“Mr. Hoskinson the best project is when people don’t talk about it, I’m sure a lot of people have eyes on ada hands down.”
While another one said, “Cardano will come out of nowhere and rocket to the moon, when no one is expecting.”
Recently we reported how Weiss Ratings also shared its expectations from Cardano that once fully launched will replace EOS as the king of the dapps. In early February, Charles Hoskinson also joined Endor, a predictive analytics company as an advisor.
Hoskinson will be guiding the company in decision making on technical as well as business aspects of the blockchain, cryptocurrencies, and decentralization. He will also be leading a new project at Endor which is yet to be announced.
