As the Cardano (ADA) ecosystem continues to expand and advance despite occasional setbacks in the wider cryptocurrency market, its founder Charles Hoskinson has indicated he was open to the idea of going on The Joe Rogan Experience podcast to talk about it.
Indeed, Rick McCracken, the owner of the ADA staking pool DIGI and a vocal Cardano supporter, suggested that Hoskinson “would be a good guy to talk to Joe Rogan about Cardano,” as he explained on his Twitter account on February 2.
His suggestion followed a recommendation made to Rogan by computer scientist and podcaster Lex Fridman, to invite on the podcast some of the major names from the crypto sector, during his own appearance on the podcast shared by McCracken.
As Fridman told Rogan at the time:
“There’s a lot of cryptocurrency projects – Bitcoin, Ethereum, Cardano – there’s a bunch of them, you should talk to some of them.”
In response to this suggestion, Hoskinson posted a GIF indicating that he wholeheartedly agreed with the idea and was willing to go on the podcast to talk about matters pertaining to the Cardano network.
Long time in the making
If the controversial American podcaster accepts this suggestion, it would be a long time coming, as the Cardano community has been asking for Hoskinson’s appearance on the podcast since at least 2018, as confirmed by the Cardano founder himself on August 18, 2018.
Three years later, in June 2021, Hoskinson appeared on Fridman’s podcast, explaining how he would approach someone like Rogan on the technical intricacies of cryptocurrencies, which is starting with applications he’s interested in, and “work your way outwards.”
In Rogan’s case, the Cardano founder said this would be elk hunting tax, and explaining how “that whole system can be put on a blockchain and how it’s going to be better,” then following with utility in things like royalty payments and intellectual property, which connects to non-fungible tokens (NFTs).
Notably, Hoskinson is known for sharing his ideas that involve the potential utility of blockchain and crypto in the mainstream, which has often attracted heavy criticism, such as over the possibility of purchasing the crypto news portal CoinDesk to introduce ‘veracity bonds.’
He was also attacked online by members of the XRP community over his comment that the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) was after Ripple due to the lack of clarity and not because of corruption in the regulator’s ranks, after which he declared he would no longer share his views on the issue.
