Cardano Architect Dismisses ‘Zombie Blockchain’ Accusations with Wit and Humor

Unlocking ADA's Potential: The Role of Developer Engagement in Cardano's Price Growth

In response to recent allegations labeling several prominent blockchains, including Cardano (ADA), as “zombies” with minimal users and utility, Cardano’s founder, Charles Hoskinson, offered a humorous rebuttal. The accusations, outlined in a Forbes article, criticized the functionality and value of these blockchains, sparking a lively response from Hoskinson.

Report Overview

Forbes’ investigation identified approximately 50 cryptocurrency platforms trading at over $1 billion, with around 20 labeled as “functional zombies.” Critics described these blockchains as lacking utility beyond speculative trading, despite their possession of substantial treasuries. Specifically, Cardano was targeted for its purportedly meager fee revenue and unfinished developmental stages.

However, Hoskinson countered Forbes’ claims with humor, sharing a South Park animation featuring zombies and referencing other platforms mentioned in the article. He quipped, “We call them zombies because we got all the brains,” suggesting Cardano’s superiority. 

This isn’t the first time Cardano has faced such allegations, with Hoskinson reaffirming its longevity and relevance.

Historical Context

Similar accusations have been levied against Cardano and even Bitcoin numerous times in the past. Since 2010, critics have declared Bitcoin dead over 476 times, highlighting the cyclical nature of skepticism in the cryptocurrency market. Hoskinson’s response underscores the resilience of Cardano and the broader blockchain industry.

While critics abound, supporters advocate for careful research and diligence before investing in cryptocurrencies. Staying informed about Cardano’s developments and news is essential for navigating this dynamic market.
