In a recent post, the founder of Cardano, Charles Hoskinson, expressed frustration at the growing hostility faced by the team as they work to expand and enhance the ecosystem. Hoskinson noted the emergence of several innovative projects like Nami and Midnight, bringing new capabilities and users to the Cardano network. Despite their positive contributions, the team faced criticism and hostility when investing millions to bring more users into the ecosystem.
The founder emphasized that IOG [Input Output Global], the organization behind the blockchain platform, is fundamentally a builder, not unlike other decentralized application [DApp] companies within Cardano. Hoskinson highlighted their commitment to transparency and openness about their plans and projects. They expressed bewilderment at the misinterpretation of initiatives like CIP 1694, which was intended to broaden the ecosystem rather than maintain an oligarchy.
The Cardano founder argued that projects like Lace, aimed at becoming the best wallet in the cryptocurrency space and gradually introducing Bitcoin and Ethereum users to Cardano, should be celebrated. Similarly, the acquisition of Nami, a move designed to accelerate user-friendly experiences, and Midnight, a technology enhancing data confidentiality in Cardano, should be seen as positive developments.
Addressing the ADA community, the founder urged a focus on constructive efforts, emphasizing the need to avoid unnecessary drama and concentrate on building, partnering, and embracing positive developments. The message stressed that everyone involved in the blockchain project shares a common mission: to propel the layer-1 chain to the number one position. To achieve this goal, the post urged unity, collaboration, and a collective dedication to fulfilling the mission.
Cardano Ignites Investors’ Optimism
Recently, Cardano has witnessed a surge in dormant wallet activity, marking the highest level since April 2022. This increase in on-chain movement indicates a renewed circulation of coins within the layer-1 network, signaling heightened investor engagement. As reported by TronWeekly, significant ADA holders, comprising whales and sharks owning between 100k and 10 million ADA, have amassed an impressive $48 million in just two weeks.
These strategic maneuvers orchestrated by influential investor groups have sparked a price rally for ADA. In the latest update, the leading token is now valued at $0.309, marking an impressive 8% surge within the past 24 hours. Over the course of the last month, Cardano’s price has experienced a remarkable uptick of 15.4%, further bolstering investor confidence in the cryptocurrency.
