Cardano’s Founder Wants To Build A DeFi Platform With Elon Musk

Charles Hoskinson, founder of Cardano blockchain and CEO of IOHK extended a counteroffer to Elon Musk, in case his Twitter offer fails to succeed. Hoskinson proposed to build a decentralized platform from scratch, adding that he would be happy to do so in collaboration with Musk. 

@elonmusk Elon if Twitter rejects your offer, then hit me up. Happy to build a decentralized one

According to the official SEC filing filed by Tesla Chief Elon Musk, Musk intends to “transform” the social media website Twitter by taking it private. Musk proposed a deal stating that he wishes to purchase additional shares of Twitter for $54.20 which totals up to $41.4 billion. 

In addition to this, Musk made his intention known at a TED conference in Vancouver, where he asserted that the platform needs severe transformation in terms of handling controversial content. 

“A top priority I would have is eliminating the spam and scam bots and the bot armies that are on Twitter…They (scam bots) make the product much worse. If I had a Dogecoin for every crypto scam I saw, we’d have 100 billion Dogecoin.”

Musk had earlier conducted a poll on Twitter underlining the importance of free speech and inquiring his followers whether they think that Twitter adheres to the tenets of free speech and allows users to practice the same. He had also underlined and cautioned his followers to vote carefully as the “consequences of the poll are very important,” hinting at his increasing interest in the social media platform. 

Meanwhile, Hoskinson’s tweet concerning building a  decentralized platform with Musk had garnered mixed reviews on the internet.

I have the same idea for a long time now, build a social media, running on the blockchain, 100% users account verified, no fake accounts, a space productive and organized, with many tools for the crypto folks and crypto company’s. 🚀🚀

While the majority of the users have favored the said idea of verified accounts with zero spam, others have stated that Hoskinson should focus on expanding Cardano first before exploring other crypto avenues.  

Dear Charles, I believe that Elon needs a social network in a short time and immediately usable. With your help, he will be forced to wait at least 10 years.
