The well-known founder of Cardano, Charles Hoskinson has revealed a look at how computer scientists and blockchain developers are coping with challenges as they build decentralised systems in order to transform the financial landscape. Hoskinson gave an overview of the platform’s developments on YouTube’s Cryptocurrency Virtual Summit and analysed the progress Cardano has made since it launched in September 2017. Hoskinson says that in the early years of Cardano’s creation, he learnt a lot about how to create and bring a cryptocurrency into the market. “The big accomplishment is just learning how to have a cryptocurrency in the market, learning how to have a product that can evolve at a reasonable pace, and being able to actually execute on the science, because the science is so very complicated and it’s all new protocols. And being able to actually go from the lab to a specification to code, and have a reasonable vision of how we’re actually going to roll that code out and ship it to people and get it to work. I think that that’s what I’m most proud of.” As you will probably know, managing complex solutions like Cardano takes a lot of time. Ethereum is another example following the delay in its understandably complicated Constantinople upgrade which was delayed earlier this year to 27th February. From the team’s initial vision, all the way through the integration stage, emerging digital ledger technologies and their unnumerable use cases are evolving but just like that old saying, Rome wasn’t built in a day. Hoskinson went on to discuss how building against the plummeting crypto prices isn’t an easy process. “It’s a hard process. It’s a brutal process. Doing it during crypto winter was especially hard because while we were making great progress and great achievements, the price keeps going down. So it demoralizes people and causes a lot of people to be very harsh, and just say things that aren’t true. But being able to overcome all of that and keep moving forward – and dealing with issues like the Cardano Foundation and having to go through a change of leadership – these were all things that we overcame. They prove that we’re resilient, and they prove that we know how to execute, and that we’re going to be here for a long time. And that we’re going to be building for a long time.”

eToro is a massive social media platform which has just released the results of a market survey which shows that more than 40 percent of online traders who are classed as millennials don’t have as much ‘faith’ in the performance of the traditional stock market in comparison to the crypto market. Just over 70 percent of the millennials who responded to eToro’s survey said that they would invest “in crypto if it was offered by traditional financial institutions.” Some of the other notable results from the trading firm’s poll included “half of online investors expressing interest in a crypto allocation in their 401k plans.” For those that don’t know, in the United States, a 401k is a retirement savings plan (pension) which is sponsored by an employer. The plan allows employees to “save and invest a piece of their paycheck before taxes are taken out.” In eToro’s press release, the firm did a countrywide survey of 1,000 online traders and showed that 77 percent of Generation X respondents “trust stock exchanges more” than a crypto asset-related investment of emerging markets or alternative markets. The managing director at eToro, Guy Hirsch said: “We're seeing the beginning of a generational shift in trust from traditional stock exchanges to crypto exchanges. At the heart of this change are the asset classes themselves. Younger investors' experience with the stock market has seen a great deal of loss of trust, with the fall of Lehman Brothers because of irresponsible practices followed by the worst recession since the Great Depression.” Hirsch went on to express his confidence in the ‘immutability’ feature of blockchain tech. Explaining, he said that distributed ledger technology-based systems will allow companies to conduct real-time auditing in an effective way, in terms of cost. Hirsch says that this is why Generation X and millennials believe cryptocurrency exchanges are “less likely to be subject to manipulation and less likely to be a place where bad actors get rewarded with taxpayer money.” In some other research executed by the eToro’s survey suggested that some of the younger investors had more faith in cryptocurrency investments rather than traditional stocks. More notably, eToro’s nationwide poll of US-based investors found “even among millennials that [said they] don't trade crypto, one-third said they would trust crypto over the stock market.”

However, what we do know is that P30 is going to have a triple camera, while the more advanced P30 Pro will have a quad camera. This is all we know for now.
