Charles Hoskinson: Cardano Will Be used By Billions

Cardano founder Charles Hoskinson recently revealed in a blog post that he believes that projects like the blockchain he works on will be “as ubiquitous as the internet and used by billions” in the future.

That type of adoption, he wrote, will take decades to be seen, all the while the project’s developers slowly move forward in pushing out new upgrades “instead of chasing hype and the latest cycle.” Hoskinson wrote:

"Our view is that these protocols will be as ubiquitous as the internet and be used by billions. This scale of adoption will take years to decades, not weeks to months, and won’t be a meme. Ultimately it’s the long game that matters."

The founder of Cardano wrote that Cardano and projects like it are the “antithesis” of mentality associated with startup culture in which progress is achieved “at any personal cost” and with mentality associated with crypto asset communities that keep pushing developers to do more for price changes.

Hoskinson noted that being a leader in the crypto space is “a brutal affair” as there is “really nothing like the 24/7 blast of information, scandals, new protocols, concepts ranging from NFTs and the metaverse to a constantly changing landscape.”

Notably, Cardano’s approach has seemingly been paying off. As reported, the number of active addresses on its network quadrupled from October to November as on-chain activity picked up and transaction fees on the network dropped from $0.45 to $0.38 on average.

According to CryptoCompare’s recent Asset Report, in October, there were 50,506 active addresses on the Cardano blockchain, while in November, there were 216,072 active addresses.

Cardano Price Is Expected To Reach These Levels 

Looking at the Cardano price chart, we see that ADA has been extremely bullish during the current week. If the current sentiment persists, ADA is expected to push above $1.30, possibly moving to $1.31 during the current session.
