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.

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.

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'.
