In this episode of CRYPTO 101, brought to you by Gods Unchained, we talked to Charles Hoskinson from Cardano. Charles is the founder of IOHK, the company behind the product Cardano, which is one of the most highly advanced blockchains and actively developed crypto products in the space. Part of what makes Cardano so special is the peer-review process their development goes through. We learn why this is the best approach, even if it takes longer. And also, that there may be an advantage of being the last to market in your sector, as well. We discussed a whole variety of fascinating topics, from how to construct a company to work remotely yet efficiently, to the underlying problems in Ethereum 2.0, how the naming scheme for Cardano eras came to be, and so much more. He also revealed that the main use case Cardano hopes to address is the lack of reliable digital identity around the world. He’s been giving TED talks on this subject since 2013, and working hard to make headway on a solution. 2020 has seen some major development updates from Cardano, including the launching of token staking just this past month. Charles gives us an update on the roadmap for Cardano going forward, as well as his thoughts on the political situation in Hong Kong, where IOHK is based out of.
