Charles Hoskinson, the CEO of IOG, who created Cardano (ADA), has recently questioned the exclusion of the largest proof-of-stake (PoS) blockchain in the top 25 crypto report that was recently released by Messari, a crypto market intelligence firm.
In a series of tweets on the 26th of July 2022, Ryan Selkis, the founder of Messari, announced that the platform has started the production of quarterly reports for 25 of the largest digital currencies in the world.
Ryan Selkis tweeted, “Messari now produces quarterly reporting for 25 of the world’s largest crypto communities. Here are the most interesting charts from the first 15 reports we’ve done on Q2.”

The first 15 crypto reports released by Messari include Ethereum (ETH), Uniswap (UNI), Tezos (XTZ), Polkadot (DOT), Binance Coin (BNB), Avalanche (AVAX), e.t.c.
In a nutshell, the list contains the top smart contract platforms, which are Cardano’s stern competitors. But strangely, Cardano (ADA) is missing from the list.
Expectedly, the exclusion of the crypto project raised questions from community members, including IOG boss, Charles Hoskinson.
A supposed Cardano community member who reacted to the exclusion asked:
“Where is Cardano? Disappointed there isn’t a report for Cardano when by every metric it is one of the world’s 25 largest crypto communities. This makes me question the credibility of this report.”
In response to the user’s inquiry, Messari founder wrote, “Stay tuned.”
Where is #Cardano? Disappointed there isn't a report for Cardano when by every metric it is one of the world's 25 largest crypto communities. This makes me question the credibility of this report.

Charles Hoskinson Reacts
Cardano (ADA) founder, Charles Hoskinson, who is accustomed to questioning anything related to Messari’s action, also reacted to omission.
Hoskinson wrote, “No cardano? Ok….”

In response to Hoskinson’s question, Ryan Selkis, “hey man – we are signed up to work together starting this quarter (Q3). we all missed the window for Q2, but we’re starting this imminently?”
Indeed, the Cardano blockchain has faced tons of criticisms over the years and this strange exclusion by Messari seems to confirm that the blockchain project is being targeted.
However, Hoskinson’s vision for the blockchain project has been unaffected by criticisms, considering the progress of the project from inception. His focus is fully set on ensuring that Cardano attains its full potential and becomes a force to reckon with in the crypto industry.
