Cardano Founder Takes Swipe at Ethereum Amid Staking Debate

Charles Hoskinson Takes Jab at Ethereum

Charles Hoskinson, founder of the Cardano blockchain-based platform, has recently taken a dig at Ethereum, referencing a video clip where developer Justin Drake comments on staking.

“I think that part of the reason is that when it comes to making sausages, you know how it’s made,” the developer noted in the clip, gesturing to the undesirable side of blockchain processes happening behind-the-scenes on Ethereum’s staking system. His comment stirred some controversy due its potential implications for Ethereum’s ambiguous operations.

Vitalik Buterin is known to be hesitant towards staking his own Ethereum, citing security and operational complications which involve considerable risk. With his potentially huge resources, containing his account’s keys in a multi-sig wallet may become inconvenient, if not impossible.

This is not the first unfavorable remark Charles Hoskinson has made towards Ethereum – he has previously labeled it as “a dumpster fire” – as well as predicting its decline in comparison to newer platforms such as Cardano, which has purportedly better speed, cost-efficiency and user volume.
