As numerous developments continue to change the face of the cryptocurrency space, IOHK’s CEO Charles Hoskinson shared Cardano’s latest innovations in its ecosystem through another one of his AMA sessions. While the entrepreneur expanded on the expected launch of its Haskell and RUST testnets, the AMA was also focused on sharing his aggressive plan to enable Cardano’s smart contracting.
Hoskinson attributed the vision’s ultimate success to three main factors, which include ability to train new developers, the model itself and Cardano’s ability to interface with the broader functional programming community. He supported this idea by saying,
“This is a huge untapped community full of credentialed and qualified programmers. By interfacing our foundation with that community, we should be able to see a lot of really interesting DApps produced for Cardano rather quickly.”
Comparing Cardano’s credibility to the infamous JAVA platform, Hoskinson claims to have made 20 reiterations of the project “because programming language theorists are perfectionists and they really want to get this done right.”
While the Cardano team continues to work towards the deployment of Shelley and Marlowe on the testnet, Hoskinson also hinted at some incremental upgrades that will be expanded upon in the next AMA, as well as on the company’s official website. Out of the many iterations, Cardano’s primary focus will be to stay loyal to the ecosystem’s scalability and interoperability across other crypto-based ecosystems.
Hoskinson also mentioned that his past contributions to Ethereum helped his team explore the design space of the code, which ultimately helped them develop a seamless ecosystem focused on user experience and ease of use. He added,
“People want to keep regulators happy. That said, we will also begin exploring some privacy ideas and how we can also increase privacy on these transactions.”
In addition to backend development,
