[Charles Hoskinson Brief Update on Bittrex Exchange - 07/09/2020]

On September 7th Charles Hoskinson sat down to give a brief update on Bittrex.

"We (IOG) wanted to give our supporters an update on the relationship with Bittrex. Our team has been working on an end to end analysis of the wallet backend of Adrestia. This has given us insight into some cascading issues with Bittrex. We have now enhanced our testing and we are walking through every aspect of the wallet backend. This has led to some massive improvements and these updates should be pushed into the wallet this week. We are also working closely with Bittrex to help fix their difficulties.

The light at the end of the tunnel is that we will eventually solve Bittrex’s concern, but the improvements will also work their way into all other Cardano wallets. This will improve performance across the board which was a fortunate accident in this process. We believe that there will now be a strong chance of resolution soon. We will then continue with benchmarking and performance improvements."

Charles Hoskinson’s Whiteboard Presentation on the Atala & Cardano Symbiosis 07/09/2020

On September 7th 2020 Charles Hoskinson also sat down to discuss the symbiosis and difference between Atala and Cardano in a whiteboard video.

"The Symbiosis between Atala and Cardano"

"We would like to discuss the difference between Atala and Cardano. This includes the difference between enterprise\non-enterprise, permissioned\permissionless systems. We would like to clarify the complementary strategy of these two things. Years ago we were building Cardano and many enterprise clients wanted to work with us. They could not go onto permissionless infrastructure because of their lack of control over the platform. However, they wanted to work with partners on a blockchain-like structure. Normally, people will use Fabric for this because of the control over consensus and its chaincode or smart contract logic contained within it..."

The Cardano Foundation is leading global industry bodies to design legislative drafts and discuss their implementation with regulators to ensure regulatory clarity for stakeholders in the #Cardano ecosystem and the broader #blockchain community.

Earlier this year, the Cardano Foundation and our Proof of Stake Alliance (POSA) allies sent the US SEC a whitepaper outlining how stake networks provide infrastructure services rather than financial products.

We are happy to report that our efforts are driving positive results and now, a bipartisan group of US Congressmen have written to the IRS to explain why proof-of-stake block rewards should not be taxed as income.

Charles Hoskinson Surprise AMA - 08/09/2020

On September 8th Charles Hoskinson sat down for a surprise AMA to address some of the progress emerging from Cardano.

"Moving forward"

Things are moving in the right direction for Cardano. Many updates are on their way at the end of the month for Goguen. Currently we are trying to parallelize workstreams with Daedalus and more will be revealed shortly. On The Voltaire side we are working to have ballots come out before the end of the month. We believe that October will be the voting season for the dcFund. We are currently broadening the scope of things that we are looking at including GitCoin."

Flipside Crypto’s Data Cooperative and real-time Chainwalking brings superior on-chain visibility to Cardano

ZUG, 15 SEPTEMBER 2020. The Cardano Foundation is pleased to announce its collaboration with blockchain analytics firm Flipside Crypto, to enable next-level on-chain data visibility for the Cardano protocol.

Through Flipside Crypto’s proprietary Chainwalking process, every block on Cardano is decoded in real-time into a universal data set. Flipside’s data science team then uses statistical and behavioral modeling to track and label Cardano’s on-chain activity. The collated blockchain data is then used to power insightful data visualizations made public on the Flipside Data Cooperative.
