Cardano Founder Defends ADA & XRP

Hoskinson, taking to Twitter, humorously slashed the tag of ‘Crypto Zombies’ bestowed by Forbes. He took to X and tagged the affected parties, including Ripple, Tezos, Bitcoin Cash and refuted Forbes’ claims. The Cardano Founder employed his wits and wrote, “I guess it’s because we have brains.”

This playful remark reiterated his confidence in Cardano’s viability amidst the crypto landscape.

Echoing the sentiment, Anodos Finance Co-founder Mekras criticized Forbes for spreading what he called “nonsense and misinformation.” He lamented the lack of basic research evident in Forbes’ piece. In addition, Mekras shed light on the dissemination of misinformation being prevalent in mainstream media narratives when it comes to the crypto industry.

What Did The Forbes Article Talk About?

The Forbes article, authored by Steven Ehrlich, Maria Gracia Santillana Linares, and Nina Bambysheva, scrutinized several prominent blockchains, including Ripple, Bitcoin Cash, and Cardano. The article explained Ripple’s journey from its inception. Moreover, it highlighted Ripple’s ambitious goals of revolutionizing global financial transactions.

However, despite initial traction with financial institutions, the article contended that Ripple’s blockchain now operates without substantial utility, earning it the label of a “crypto zombie.” Moreover, the article scrutinized Cardano, depicting it as a blockchain with lofty ambitions led by its Co-founder Charles Hoskinson. While acknowledging its impressive market capitalization, Forbes questioned Cardano’s tangible utility.

In addition, it raised concerns about its developmental stages, leaving room for speculation regarding its future trajectory. Moreover, Forbes alleged that Hoskinson is the “main attraction” when it comes to ADA and not the blockchain itself. They noted that the co-founder’s popularity fuelled Cardano’s successful adoption and that it has no utility of its own.

In the broader context, Forbes’ investigation revealed that a significant number of blockchains, beyond Bitcoin and Ethereum, are trading at values surpassing $1 billion. However, it asserted that 20 of these blockchains lack substantial traction and utility, leading to their characterization as “functional zombies.” The article underscored the challenges faced by these blockchains, ranging from technical limitations to governance issues.

Additionally, it questioned their long-term sustainability in the rapidly evolving crypto landscape. Lastly, it concluded, “Buyer beware. The lunatics are running the crypto asylum.” This remark irked the crypto community as they stood firmly against such accusations.
