In his latest video, Charles Hoskinson explained that some articles written by well-known cryptocurrency and blockchain media outlets have explicitly abused the narrative about the ties between him and Ethereum (ETH).

'Put yourself in my shoes'

Mr. Hoskinson decided to make things clear about some interview articles published by various blockchain media outlets. He revealed that his interaction with journalists have followed a similar pattern a couple of times. They discussed multiple subjects related to Cardano (ADA), Input Output HK and, at best, only a few questions about Ethereum.

However, some articles have been published that overuse Ethereum (ETH) in both the headlines and the text. Despite working full-time as the CEO of IOHK, some media outlets find it possible to call Mr. Hoskinson as 'Ethereum Co-Founder'.

Mr. Hoskinson highlighted that instead of informing the public on valuable topics that are related to the progress of current products, some journalists are only interested in the hypothetical 'revenge to Ethereum' or its competition with its leader Vitalik Buterin.

Now, he has decided to tell journalists that he is extremely tired of this approach and is not interested in talking about the events from the past:

'Don't ask me about my relationships with Ethereum anymore'

Peaceful Co-Existence

Mr. Hoskinson slammed the very idea of an eternal 'war' between Cardano (ADA) and Ethereum (ETH). He is sure that the market nowadays is incredibly diverse, allowing different blockchains to co-exist like Apple and Microsoft.

He stated that he will never talk to journalists who have written about him in an Ethereum-focused manner. In the most recent case 'Ethereum Co-Founder' abuse, Hoskinson revealed to media outlets that published article was the result of being contact by IOHK's Media Director, with a request to only use his current positions in the text.

Nevertheless, this outlet failed to meet this request, and the leader of Cardano (ADA) guessed the reason behind this abusive decision:

They get more clicks with this title. But I'm not here to get your clicks!

Finally, Hoskinson highlighted that he doesn't need news sources of this type to cover his activities.

John Lilic leads international business development in the ConsenSys leading blockchain development studio. He is also an expert in energy markets and cryptocurrency segments. He tracked the progress of Bitcoin's (BTC) and Ethereum's (ETH) market capitalization statistics, coming up with an extravagant prediction.

Bitcoin (BTC) should get ready for parity

Mr. Lilic outlined that Ethereum (ETH) is showcasing much healthier dynamics than its competitor is. For instance, the flagship cryptocurrency still surpasses Ethereum (ETH) by 6.3x in terms of market capitalization, while simultaneously collecting 20% fewer fees than Ethereum (ETH).

Also, Ethereum (ETH) is demonstrating much more impressive price dynamics this year. It gained almost 37% against Bitcoin (BTC) in 2020. That said, Ethereum (ETH) looks severely undervalued to the top manager of ConsenSys.

However, Ether is on the path to eliminating this discrepancy. Eventually, the top two cryptocurrencies may reach market capitalization parity, concludes Mr. Lilic.

As covered by U.Today Crypto News recently, Coinmetrics on-chain research team called Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) the unique crypto behemoths that have managed to recover from Black Thursday.

Bitcoin (BTC) is losing supremacy in "fee race"

Should Ethereum (ETH) overcome its undervaluation, its price may be over $1,550 based on liquid supply and current Bitcoin (BTC) market capitalization.

Recently, it was unveiled that Ethereum (ETH) blockchain continues to surpass Bitcoin (BTC) in terms of network fees for more than 30 days in a row. Ethereum (ETH) is seeing this advantage for the first time in its history.

As U.Today Crypto News reported previously, ex-Messari analyst and angel investor Qiao Wang identifies two main catalysts of Ethereum's (ETH) price run in the mid-term perspective.
