September 9, 2022 by Vignesh Karunanidhi
In a recent tweet, Cardano’s Charles Hoskinson emphasized the decentralization of the blockchain by stating that he is unable to force the Vasil hard fork in response to a critic. The much-anticipated upgrade is anticipated to happen on September 22.
@btc bryan 21, a Bitcoin maximalist, claimed that Hoskinson could unilaterally alter the supply of ADA as a result of its purported centralization.
Cardano’s highest supply is maxed at 45 million ADA, but the critic claimed that since the blockchain’s monetary policy is very moldable, nothing would halt the crypto tycoon from changing that.
Cardano’s Hoskinson said Bitcoin maxis are beyond stupid
In July, Hoskinson also said that Bitcoin maximalists are the most “toxic” and “useless” people to engage in reply to ex-MicroStrategy CEO asserting that the ADA token is unregistered security. Hoskinson plainly rejected such an idea, adding that they are “beyond stupid.”
Since all ADA tokens are in the possession of their rightful owners, Cardano has consistently opposed the concept of burning them. Hoskinson claims that this would be equivalent to stealing from the ADA community. He compared the notion of burning ADA to stealing food back in September.
