Twitter Wants To Increase User Acquisition, Cardano Founder Says

Key Insights

  • Cardano's founder wants a collaboration with DOGE to help forge decentralized Twitter.
  • The collaboration comes because of the Twitter subscription announcement.
  • The decentralized mechanism will solve some of the issues that the decentralized mechanism will solve: verification issues, bot followers, etc.

Charles Hoskinson of Cardano (ADA) has published a YouTube video in which he shared his thoughts on how the social network could be decentralized using blockchain and cryptocurrencies.

In the video, he explained how he could collaborate with Dogecoin (DOGE) and (his) Cardano to resolve social media issues like profile verification, fake/bot followers, etc. 

This video comes shortly after Elon Musk became the sole owner of Twitter. Charles Hoskinson said social networks "want to maximize user acquisition." Little wonder,

They make it easy to follow this flow so you can get as little friction as possible."

He added that the problem with the flow is that you end up getting false and inaccurate accounts. 

Particularly, Charles Hoskinson says blockchain technology will be useful in solving verification issues. This is against Elon Musk's calling for users to pay $8 per month for verification.


Charles highlighted that Cardano is working on neutral cross-chain identity tools. You can store these tools on a blockchain and use them with a verification-as-a-service API system. Significantly, he said you can store the tool on a blockchain like "Cardono blockchain or Dogecoin."

DOGE for Decentralized Twitter

In an announcement by Charles Hoskinson, he highlighted the roles of DOGE in the partnership. He said DOGE could serve as an "advertising token and the veracity token." 

Similarly, DOGE will be the marketplace token for prediction markets, and the network can use it to issue NFTs. Should the collaboration go live, DOGE will be the social network currency. 

However, Charles Hoskinson clarified that "DOGE will not be able to provide any notion of any of this infrastructure." This is because Dogecoin is a fork of Bitcoin

Instead, it will be side-chain and needs to be a web 2.5 application." In highlighting the benefits of the DOGE and Cardano collaboration, Charles said the following: 

"If you structure the security model in just the right way, you get immutability, and you get censorship resistance." He added that Cardano has the same security properties as the main ledger. It is a blockchain, so you get profitability." 

In addition, stake pool operators maintaining the ledger will get their rewards in DOGE and Cardano token, ADA.
