Cardano Founder: There Are Bigger Things At Stake
Cardano founder Charles Hoskinson recently reiterated the importance of fundamentals over short-term price action. Instead of focusing on price, Hoskinson called on those who are panicking over the sell-off to “calm down,” and “chill out,” implying there’s a bigger picture in play here.
“Lately, I’ve seen an unusually high number of people that are obsessed with price, or they say stuff like, “oh well, everything is failing, the sky is falling.” And there seems to be an utter lack of perspective.”
Specifically, the IOHK boss was addressing newcomers, who typically do not see the long-term vision of what cryptocurrency will do in the coming years. Explaining further, Hoskinson distilled this down to opting out of a fundamentally broken legacy system. Saying it is happening now at the nation-state level, citing El Salvador, with more to come, as examples of this.
Hoskinson singled out Dogecoin and Shiba Inu as examples of erratic price discovery. He added that neither has any real utility outside of a social network aspect. While some say this is enough to justify the price, Hoskinson disagrees. Instead, as an old-school thinker, he pointed to real fundamentals making a real-world impact as the way forward.
Tied with this is what Cardano is working on developing now across scalability optimization and governance. This, over the long term, puts Cardano in a solid position to be “the backend of many nation states.” Hoskinson envisions the chain running billions of transactions daily, managing national elections, acting as a property register for nation-states, and as the backbone for the identity systems of the future.
He added that all of this will converge at some future point, making Cardano “the biggest preserver of human rights the world has seen.”
Cardano Price Is Expected To Reach These Levels
Looking at the Cardano price chart, we see that ADA has registered a significant drop during the current session. If the current sentiment persists, we could see ADA drop to $1.80.
