The CEO of IOHK and co-creator of Cardano (ADA) and Ethereum (ETH), Charles Hoskinson, has shown his love for the Bitcoin Cash (BCH) Community and its founder, proclaiming that the Bitcoin (BTC) community is now harsh.
Hoskinson, in a response to a comment on Twitter where he was accused of honorably doubling down on BCH during an interview some months back, said he could not recollect ever condemning BCH and its creator Roger Ver for anything.
Responding, the co-creator of Cardano said he could not recall criticizing Bitcoin Cash (BCH) for anything, and had no issue with its community or pioneers.
Hoskinson pointed that the Bitcoin Cash community have not attacked or criticized Cardano’s technology before. He said he likes Roger Ver and will always give him Kudos for his unflinching support to the Bitcoin community during its formative years.
He reiterated that the Bitcoin community is very hostile but the BCH community has been a friendly group on Reddit and elsewhere.
The CEO of IOHK also released a video where he highlighted the errors of the Bitcoin community and the friendliness of the BCH, noting that the warmth reception he received in the Bitcoin community during the cryptocurrency’s early days is gone.
He said redditors in Bitcoin community attack him almost every time he tried relating with them. Hoskinson said they do call him scammer and brand his project with obscene names despite joining the Bitcoin community since 2013.
The crypto founder said when he first joined the community, it was full fun and the Reddit Bitcoin community was welcoming. From there, he said he met bigwigs in the crypto space like Roger Ver, Eric and some others.
Hoskinson recalled how he got completely involved in Bitcoin in 2013 when he created a BTC course on Udemy that fetched him over 100,000 thousand students and still counting till today.
The creator of Cardano said he’s deeply invested in Bitcoin and part of the ecosystem but still have not been getting accolades from the BTC community but get good response from the Bitcoin Cash Reddit where everything about the group is positive.
Cardano’s Presence in Africa
Charles Hoskinson has been making moves to capture some African countries by introducing Cardano blockchain technology into some countries in the continent.
The CEO of IOHK believes Cardano blockchain can be used to create a single monetary system for the continent. Recently, the creator of Cardano said IOHK had requested that the Cardano Foundation create an all-encompassing strategy that makes it easy for Cardano to coast the whole of Africa and Japan.
The strategy once available will teach how Cardano can have representatives in all African countries.
After Hoskinson made the statement, the Cardano Foundation proclaimed it is supporting the newly launched South African National Blockchain Alliance (SANBA), a collaborative effort centered on boosting the socio-economic development of South Africa.
