Vitalik Runs A Twitter Poll; Charles Hoskinson Responds


Things have been slow lately, so Vitalik decided to make things more interesting for Twitter and the blogosphere alike. It’s greatly appreciated, V.


  • Vitalik Twitter Poll
  • Charles Hoskinson Responds
  • Bitcoin Community Fires Back
  • Final Results

Vitalik Twitter Poll

Yesterday, Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin posted a Twitter poll for the “Ethereum community.” “You wake up in 2035, and 80% of all transactions + savings in the world are in one currency that is not ETH. Which would you prefer it to be?” And, obviously, things got wild.

Based on the results, it appears the Ethereum community isn’t the one voting, like Vitalik intended. ADA (Cardano’s native token) got off to an early lead. After the poll was up for around 4 hours, ADA was ahead off BTC by almost 12%.

ADA In The Lead

Charles Hoskinson Responds

Cardano’s success in the poll might have something to do with Charles Hoskinson, CEO of Cardano, and fellow co-founder of Ethereum.


One has to wonder if Hoskinson appreciated the shoutout from Ethereum, considering his use of “V.” I imagine it’s been years since the two have been on a first letter basis.

Bitcoin Community Fires Back

However, the BTC online community decided that they couldn’t face such an indignity as losing to Cardano — even though they share UTXO. As of press time, ADA is only ahead by one percent. The Hoskinson-led project currently has 40.7% share of the votes, while BTC holds 39.8%.

Vitalik’s poll closes at 4pm EST. With only hours to go, Hoskinson is still rallying the troops.

Ultimately, it doesn’t matter who wins because the only clear cut loser here is boredom.

Final Results

So we have the final results and — drum roll please — the winner is… ADA. 42.4% to Bitcoin’s 38%. Rounding out the poll was Solana with 13.1% and USD with a paltry 6.4%.

It’s a stunning result that is sending shockwaves throughout the ETH community.

Obviously, the Doge community had to get involved. Especially since they are feeling themselves now that you can buy Tesla merch with Doge

l reached out to Charles Hoskinson for a comment on his victory, but I have yet to hear back from him as of press time.
