Charles Hoskinson Plans to Utilize Blockchain to Facilitate Affordable Loans through DeFi
Charles Hoskinson, the creator of Cardano (ADA) had said that the smart contracts platform will continue its quest for further expansion this year.
In a video shared a couple of days ago, Hoskinson spoke of his plan to utilize blockchain to facilitate affordable loans through DeFi. He also discussed some outlined technological milestones for 2022, especially his ambition to make Cardano the settlement rail.
Charles Hoskinson noted:
“My goal for the second half of 2022 is to figure out how to put all the pieces together to get an end-to-end microfinance transaction on Cardano.
He said what is going to happen in 2022 is that “a formal open-source project structure is going to be formed, kind of like Hyperledger to Linux. We’re going to see many institutions wired in, and all the people that are currently working on it will be novated over, including me…
“When you look at things like enhancing Plutus, there’s already three CIPS [Cardano improvement proposals] as a result of the work we’ve done with developers that need to come in.
“We have pipelining that needs to come in, input endorsers that need to come in. Peer-to-peer is currently being tested with the stake pool operators on the testnet, and there’s lots of stuff happening there…
“We’re staging things appropriately, and we’re starting to see a refinement of the science of things. The adoption’s there. The community’s there. We’ve grown to about two million people.”
