Here’s a summary of the video:
Charles Hoskinson, the founder of Cardano, discusses the future of scams in the cryptocurrency space. He warns that the crypto space is full of scams, where people impersonate him or other notable figures to trick others into giving them their hard-earned cryptocurrency. He mentions a recent scam where someone impersonated him to offer a placement in a new medical chain, which doesn’t exist.
Hoskinson warns about the rise of generative AI, which will allow scammers to create convincing videos and audio of him or any other person. He predicts that within a 12 to 24 month horizon, this technology will be used to scam people out of millions of dollars worth of ada and other cryptocurrencies.
He advises viewers to use PGP (Pretty Good Privacy) to verify the identity of the person they’re talking to. He states that he will never ask for ada, private keys, or investments, and he will always be willing to sign a PGP message to authenticate his identity.
Hoskinson expresses frustration and sadness that his likeness will be used by scammers to steal from people, especially the most vulnerable. He emphasizes that the only surefire way to protect oneself is to use common sense and not fall for scams promising something for nothing.
He concludes by saying that he will make a video to show viewers how to verify a PGP key, and he encourages everyone to assume everything is false until proven otherwise.
