Charles Hoskinson, the CEO of IOG, who created Cardano (ADA), has disclaimed the prediction published by a popular crypto news platform, Coin Gape, about a rather impossible trend that would take the digital token ADA to $150 by the end of the year.
Actually, Cardano (ADA) has been outperforming other top cryptocurrencies in the market over the past couple of days. And this magnificent surge started becoming noticeable after it was announced that Alonzo mainnet launch has been estimated to play out on 12th September 2021.
This positive trend aided Cardano (ADA) to break above $2 for the first time since May and to also record a new price all-time high of $2.55.
Charles Hoskinson Disclaimed That He Predicted $150 for Cardano (ADA)
However, predicting that Cardano (ADA) would hit $150 (an over 60x increase) before the end of the year is an impossible trend. The fact remains that Charles Hoskinson can talk at length but he is not fond of such predictions.
The publication had claimed that Hoskinson said Cardano (ADA) would hit $150 by the end of the year. A couple of hours ago, Hoskinson debunked the claim and called the publication a pure liar.
Charles Hoskinson tweeted, “This is a pure lie. I never said this and this publication is publishing straight up lies.”
