The Cardano (ADA) Friends & Family testnet has barely finished its second week, but some commenters are already posting poisonous comments about its roadmap.
60% drop in store for Cardano (ADA)?
The ambassadors of Cardano (ADA) started publishing their video updates in the second week of the F&F Cardano Testnet. Crypto trolls immediately responded with dramatic predictions.
I'm with you....I've said since the launch of F&F that the Haskell testing could last through Q3. I've also said (and I was crushed for saying it), that smart contracts (Goguen) WOULD NOT launch this year, but most likely 2nd half of 2021. Goguen test-net will be long as well...— Todd Fisher (@ToddFisMalach18) May 25, 2020
According to their worst estimates, Cardano (ADA) smart contracts won't launch this year and not even by Q1, 2021. In 2020, the development progress of Cardano won't go beyond Haskell testing, they anticipate.
Responding pessimistically to these delays, trolls outlined that such lags may result in both a Cardano (ADA) price collapse and a shift in project management policy:
Be prepared to see Ada price possibly touch the .02 price range as Haskell Shelley gets dragged out, and Goguen pushed into 2021. Will be interesting to see if IOHK's contract gets extended another 3-5 years as these test-nets drag out...
It should be recalled that at press time Cardano (ADA) is trading at $0.053 on major spot exchanges.
Haters gonna hate
Cardano (ADA) leader Charles Hoskinson knows no mercy for such annoying criticism. His only advice to attacks of this type is to reconsider paint chip consumption.
More tragic paint chip consumption. When will this epidemic end? https://t.co/6lcWwSCY67— Charles Hoskinson (@IOHK_Charles) May 26, 2020
Mr. Hoskinson's position is supported by the vast majority of Cardano (ADA) community members. They noticed that if anyone should be worried about the mainnet release delay, it is Ethereum (ETH) 2.0 devs.
In a recent exclusive interview with U.Today, Mr. Hoskinson admitted that managing expectations is the biggest challenge for Cardano (ADA) progress:
We're building a Ferrari, but there’s market expectation of delivering a Toyota.
However, he is certain that the Cardano (ADA) product is 'the most extensible, meaning that you can add things to it very rapidly and it works well'.
