The creator of Cardano, Charles Hoskinson recently visited Google’s headquarters in London and attracted the attention of one of the world’s largest tech companies. Cardano, which is the eight largest cryptocurrency in the world by its market cap, was the main topic of discussion at the event.
Hoskinson, as a co-founder of Ethereum and co-creator of blockchain development at IOHK, was invited to the London headquarters in order to introduce employees to Cardano and answer more questions about the Ouroboros protocol.
There is even a transcript of the session published on the IOHK blog – where Hoskinson and IOHK Director of Engineering Duncan Coutts conduct a deep dive into the economics and technical specifications of Cardano, aside from presenting their vision for the blockchain industry.
According to what Hoskinson told the Google staffers, “cryptocurrency will remove the walls between different ‘tokens of value'”. According to him, fiat currency, gold and airline miles symbolize wealth but should all be more or less interchangeable.
As Hoskinson said:
“And because all the payment systems are now programmable, thanks to you guys and many others, the merchant gets paid whatever the hell the merchant wants to get paid, now. So I can walk over to Starbucks, and I can have my house tokenized, and I can sell it. There’s a market maker that lives in between that, and I sell one-millionth of my home and I can buy that cup of coffee, somebody bought that from me and the merchant gets paid in dollars or pounds.”
Currently, there is no indication that this meetup will lead to any future collaboration between Google and Cardano.
IOHK Established Cardano Research Center At Wyoming University
"This is a very applied laboratory, where instead of doing peer theory, we're actually building real-life things and writing real software that will enter production very quickly.’’Hoskinson attended a ceremony that marked the opening of the research lab at UW’s main campus in Laramie back on Friday. The butterfly logo of IOHK will be added to the research lab and can be found at the center for IOHK’s future work with the traceability platform of BeefChain. As part of the collaboration, IOHK provided a $500,000 donation to ADA in order to fund the research and development into the new blockchain applications including new tools for traceability and supply chain management. Wyoming is expected to match the dollar value of the grant which means that UW will get $1 million worth of initial funding for the new blockchain facility according to the university spokesperson. The university will also contribute more funds as per the UW acting president Neal Theobald:
"The University of Wyoming is proud to be at the forefront of blockchain research and education, and we are grateful for this significant financial contribution from IOHK. This support will help us continue to move forward in a very exciting and promising field of innovation and discovery."Wyoming is a very attractive destination for the US-based crypto companies that want to take the crypto-friendly legislation of the state that formally recognized digital assets and provides financial services to companies:
"Our hope is to have a very substantial presence in Wyoming and write a lot of very good software there.’’
