• Cardano’s Founder Issues a Notice That He Will Be Unavailable for Two Weeks, Here’s Why

  • Charles Hoskinson, CEO of Input Output Global and founder of the Cardano blockchain, has announced on Twitter that he will be taking a break from blockchain development.

    Will Hoskinson stay off Twitter for as long as Elon Musk?

    Hoskinson is going to his ranch to relax and take his mind off work now that the Alonzo hard fork has been launched and the Cardano summit has taken place, he tweets.

    Some ADA fans in the comment thread expressed surprise that Hoskinson could be away from Cardano for two weeks, and they expect him to hold an AMA session on social media soon.

    If this occurs, it will be similar to Elon Musk, who tweeted in June 2020 that he was “off Twitter for a while” and then returned two days later with another tweet. Back then, some Bitcoin influencers joked that they now know Elon Musk’s definition of “a while” is two days.

    In February of this year, he posted a similar message.

    Smart contracts such as Alonzo and Cardano

    On September 12, the long-awaited Alonzo upgrade was released, bringing with it a feature that allows developers to begin building smart contracts on the Cardano blockchain.

    To take this a step further and begin implementing advanced smart contracts, the company announced over the weekend at the Cardano Summit event that it had formed a partnership with Chainlink to use its oracles to create smart contracts.
