Cardano’s founder Charles Hoskinson took to Twitter and extend Birthday greetings to the famous Italian mathematician whose surname was the source of inspiration for the PoS blockchain.
The IOHK leader tweeted a post that was made by the astronomy, astronautics, meteorology, and physics expert @Rainmaker1973, who has over 665k followers on Twitter.
This tweet contains a link to Gerolamo Cardano’s Wikipedia entry, who was an Italian scientist with interests in many different areas, including math, physics, biology, astrology, chemistry, etc. Cardano was “one of the most prominent mathematicians of the Renaissance,” the article claimed.
Vasil, Cardano’s eagerly anticipated hard fork, that promises significant performance and capability enhancements on the blockchain has now officially launched after several months of delays and postponements.
The launch, which was initially scheduled for June 2022, has been postponed because of internal testing and other problems found on the test net.
The head of Input Output Hong Kong [IOHK], a blockchain research and engineering firm, announced the success of the hard fork on Twitter. Other users were able to follow the event’s progress via live Twitter Spaces with Charles Hoskinson.
Recently Hoskinson claimed to have found the trigger that would put an end to the crypto winter and ignite a significant industry-wide surge.
Cardano’s Charles Hoskinson Believe This Might Set Off “Mega Bull Run”
According to him, if the Financial Innovation Act were to be passed by the US government, the cryptocurrency markets would experience a massive bull run.
I’ve been through seven bull-bear markets since I joined the cryptocurrency space, and this [current market] is no different. It could last 18 months, it could last two years, it could end at the end of the year, who knows? It’s any given Sunday.
The Cardano founder also stated that the passage of this measure will encourage blue-chip investors to pour money into the cryptocurrency markets and lessen the regulatory risks related to investing in digital assets.
The Financial Innovation Act, put forth in June by Democratic Senator Kirsten Gillibrand of New York and Republican Senator Cynthia Lummis of Wyoming, seeks to establish a thorough regulatory framework for the digital assets market.
Hoskinson cautioned that the markets might go in the opposite direction if some authorities, like U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission [SEC] Chairman Gary Gensler, are given more authority.
