Cardano's Charles Hoskinson Warns ‘Legacy Eating Crypto’

Charles Hoskinson, mastermind behind Cardano and co-founder of IOHK issued a stark warning during a recent YouTube stream. His message? traditional finance is invading the crypto space, jeopardizing its fundamental principles. 

During the stream titled ‘Legacy Eating Crypto’, Hoskinson stressed his growing concern about the underrated threat of asset-backed stablecoins, like USDT and USDC, currently dominating the industry.

Why the Worry? Stablecoin Dominance and Centralized Control

Hoskinson highlighted the alarming statistic that these stablecoins now account for a staggering 70% of on-chain transaction volume, dwarfing even established cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum. This dominance introduces a layer of centralization, as these stablecoins are pegged to real-world assets and subject to control by their issuing jurisdictions.

The implications of relying on such coins, according to Hoskinson, are far-reaching. They can significantly impact DeFi economies and even dictate outcomes during blockchain forks. Since an asset-backed stablecoin cannot exist on multiple forked chains without losing its backing, it introduces a vulnerability that undermines the very essence of decentralization.

Further fuelling his concerns was the recent celebration of spot Bitcoin ETFs and the potential rise of Wall Street’s influence. He sees this as a worrying trend that could ultimately lead to the commoditization and potential manipulation of the market by traditional financial institutions.
