Community Response to the Interview:
This is Charles Hoskinson, broadcasting recorded from Lex Friedman’s studio! Always Charles, always Lex, sometimes human!
I have been a Blockchain investor for the last 3 years and I have not seen a SINGLE interview with Charles that actually asks him something new outside of “Hey ETH is pretty neat isn’t it”. Thank you so much for asking all the RIGHT questions with Charles. I haven’t seen him this excited for an interview in a long time.
This interview convinced me to start my own stake pool. Wish me luck.
These two made me realize how they are on such a higher plane of intellect than I am. At times I was so completely lost.
You can be ignorant toward Charles if you want. This man is manifesting his destiny right before our eyes. I watched Vitalik interview and I have upmost respect for him but Charles’s overall understanding an vision of this technology and the direction it needs to go is uncanny.
I’m not investing in ada so much as I’m investing in Charles, his vision for the future is amazing.
