Ethereum Co-founder Wants to Help Jack Dorsey Decentralize Twitter

  • Cardano founder Charles Hoskinson tweeted to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey this week.
  • Hoskinson, who also helped found Ethereum, says he’s working on something regarding social media.
  • He wants Twitter’s Blue Sky decentralization initiative to be fully open source.

Twitter and Square CEO Jack Dorsey is an outspoken Bitcoin fan, and his belief in the promise of decentralized technology is a big reason why Twitter is preparing for a potential future move away from centralized service.

He reaffirmed that belief this week when explaining his reasoning behind the platform’s recent ban of US president Donald Trump for inciting violence. Dorsey mentioned the social media company’s plan to hire open source developers and engineers for its Blue Sky initiative, to help devise a potential decentralized future for social media.

However, the tweet thread prompted a crypto heavyweight to chime in on the subject of decentralized social media. Charles Hoskinson, the founder of Cardano and co-founder of Ethereum, replied to Dorsey encouraging him to open up development on Blue Sky to the community—because he’s apparently working on something in that department.
