The founder of Cardano (ADA), Charles Hoskinson was not invited to speak at Consensus for the third year in a row despite his pivotal role in the blockchain industry.
Consensus 2019 took place in New York from May 13-15 and hosted a multitude of speakers from all walks of life. Speaking at the conference were CEOs of the largest crypto companies, crypto startup founders, blockchain developers, engineers, and marketing specialists, but not Cardano’s founder Hoskinson.
However, Hoskinson did go to Consensus 2019 as an attendee, and while he was there he caught up with BlockTV, a blockchain and fintech media company where he discussed what he and Cardano have been up to as of late.
What’s up @coindesk? It is about time you invite @IOHK_Charles to speak at #Consensus! We caught up with the @Cardano co-founder, who other than joking about being snubbed also talked about how #blockchain can change the world and a whole lot more. https://t.co/dTMWw06r7B pic.twitter.com/9pBpMiSDEx

Cardano and Hoskinson Want To Change the World
Per the BlockTV interview, Hoskinson discussed how he and the Cardano cryptocurrency project are attempting to change the world with blockchain technology.
One of the ways they’re doing this right now is through a number of blockchain pilots in developing countries such as Mongolia and Ethiopia.
As previously reported by IIB, IOHK announced a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the Mongolian government and blockchain associations to combat counterfeit drugs within the country.
Hoskinson also touched on some other areas regarding Mongolian exports and how they want to help this industry with their blockchain tech. He also noted that Mongolia has a large number of universities and they want to put students’ diplomas on the blockchain so they can be easily verified.
These projects, along with Cardano’s work in Ethiopia, are done in an effort to make the world a better place while implementing Cardano’s blockchain with real and viable use cases.
