Several members of the Algorand community mock Charles Hoskinson for saying Algorand should consider becoming a sidechain of Cardano.
In a recent issue, Cardano founder Charles Hoskinson got entangled with members of the Algorand community following a Wednesday comment he made. This resulted in several mockery gestures being thrown at the ADA token creator.
Following a Twitter broadcast hosted by Algorand’s Chief Technology Officer (CTO) John Woods, Hoskinson was compelled to throw a jab at the ALGO project. The CEO at Input Output Global (IOG) taunted that Algorand should consider becoming a part of Cardano as a sidechain, sarcastically adding that he is always ready to help the ALGO team.
He said: “It might be prudent for Algorand to consider becoming a sidechain of Cardano. Always here to help.” For context, any separate blockchain connected via a two-way peg to another blockchain called a parent chain or mainnet is dubbed a sidechain.

Algorand Community Reacts
Reacting to this, several Algorand community members blasted Hoskinson and the Cardano blockchain. Among those who attacked Hoskinson was the Algorand France community, who ridiculed the personality of the IOG Chief by depicting Hoskinson as an aged man in a meme. The meme read, “It’s time to go to sleep, Charles.”

Woods also commented in the discussion, implying that Cardano would benefit more if such ridiculous sidechain development occurred. “You know sidechains help parent scale, right?” Woods said. Another user submitted that Hoskinson was not joking about supporting the Algorand project. Another suggested that “sidechain” be renamed to “partner chain” so that one network doesn’t appear inferior.
Hoskinson Stays Quiet
It bears noting that Hoskinson’s comment came sequel to some berating remarks earlier made by Algorand CTO John Woods during a Wednesday broadcast.
Notably, Woods talked down the staking mechanism adopted by the delegated proof of stake (DPos) Cardano blockchain in a bid to hail Algorand. According to Woods, Cardano’s staking approach is not completely decentralized compared to the mechanism adopted on the Algorand network.
While Hoskinson offered no response to these inciting remarks from some members of the Algorand community, it bears noting that the IOG Chief recently heralded the staking protocol of Cardano. As reported, he revealed that all his ADA holdings are staked, unlike Vitalik Buterin, who said he can only stake a small portion of his ETH holding because of the safety issues on the Ethereum staking protocol.
