Will Cardano Outgrow Bitcoin? Charles Hoskinson Asserts

Charles Hoskinson Reveals Mithril Upgrade, Rebuts Criticism

In a recent YouTube video, Charles Hoskinson, founder of Cardano, shared his vision for why Cardano could eventually outpace Bitcoin. Hoskinson attributes this potential to Cardano’s flexibility, decentralization, and effective governance. He likens Bitcoin’s rigidity to companies like BlackBerry, which failed to evolve and became obsolete.

Flexibility And Governance As Key Differentiators

Hoskinson emphasizes Cardano’s ability to absorb new technology and adapt to changing realities as crucial to its potential success. While Bitcoin is often compared to gold, Cardano’s focus on first principles thinking, decentralization, and on-chain governance sets it apart. He argues that Bitcoin’s only value proposition is its current success.

Moreover, Hoskinson asserts that Bitcoin cannot survive without the broader crypto market, suggesting it could be replaced by another “digital gold” with similar properties. He believes good governance is vital for long-term success, citing tech industry examples where poor governance led to losses in market share.

Cardano’s Resilience And Upcoming Milestones

Addressing recent skepticism, Hoskinson insists Cardano is here to stay despite widespread fear, uncertainty, and doubt (FUD). He notes the significant disconnect between Cardano’s actual progress and its portrayal by crypto influencers and the media. Cardano is approaching a major milestone with the upcoming Chang hard fork, scheduled for this quarter.
