Charles Hoskinson Surprise AMA - 08/09/2020
(Written by @Eric_Czuleger)
On September 8th Charles Hoskinson sat down for a surprise AMA to address some of the progress emerging from Cardano.
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.
Rick McCracken is taking the lead in developing a community led roadmap for the Cardano Foundation. This will articulate what the community feels the CF should be doing. IOHK will work to add structure to this conversation. There is an analogous workstream going on with Voltaire and we believe that we can help synergise some project management between these two initiatives. When this roadmap is finalized we will write a formal letter to the Cardano Foundation asking for a line by line response as to how they will choose to proceed with these thoughts.
Marketing and Goguen
Liza, our new marketing director is beginning to jump into meetings. Soon she will appear on the Cardano Effect to discuss our new marketing initiatives. Meanwhile we are beginning to get involved with the programming language side to accelerate Goguen. On the ETC side of things we have made our proposal and we will likely do a presentation on Hash Algorithms. Our team is also getting Mantis where it needs to go.
Currently we are in negotiations with Runtime Verification for the resurrection of IELE. This will be an expensive project but we believe that it will be well worth it. We will be donating $125 thousand to the Haskell Foundation and we are looking forward to incentivizing the unification of the Haskell Community. We believe that the better Haskell gets, the better Cardano will get.
