  • Charles Hoskinson expresses interest in collaborating with Elon Musk using Cardano’s Midnight Protocol to enhance privacy.
  • Despite multiple attempts and mutual connections like Lex Fridman, Musk has not responded to Hoskinson’s outreach.

Charles Hoskinson, the founder of Cardano, recently shared insights about a potential yet unrealized collaboration with Tesla CEO Elon Musk. In an interview with Tony Edward, the host of Thinking Crypto, Hoskinson conveyed his interest in partnering with Musk, noting their shared connections and mutual acquaintances.

Hoskinson expressed his disappointment over the lack of progress despite the apparent shared interests between him and Musk. He specifically pointed out opportunities for collaboration using Cardano’s Midnight Protocol to enhance privacy on Musk’s social media platform, X. This protocol could potentially address privacy concerns, an aspect crucial for social media platforms today.

Moreover, Hoskinson mentioned that both he and Musk have common acquaintances, including Lex Fridman and Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin. Even Javier Gerardo Milei, the President of Argentina, has acknowledged Hoskinson’s presence in this network of tech innovators by engaging with Cardano-related posts on X.

Despite these connections and multiple attempts by Hoskinson to initiate a collaboration, there has been no active engagement from Musk. “Never once has he mentioned us,” Hoskinson revealed, hinting at possible reasons why Musk has remained distant. He speculated that either personal biases within Musk’s circle or Musk’s preference for independence in his projects could be factors.

Addressing the challenges faced by X, particularly after Musk’s takeover which involved significant staff reductions, Hoskinson praised Musk’s management skills. 

“The guy is a business genius, and you cannot count him out,” he stated, acknowledging Musk’s ability to operate X with significantly fewer staff compared to Twitter.

Hoskinson also touched upon Musk’s well-known fascination with Dogecoin, pondering whether Musk might hold a large portion of the cryptocurrency or simply favor its branding.

Despite the uncertainties and unmet outreach efforts, Hoskinson remains open to collaboration, hoping that it could lead to broader adoption of cryptocurrency technologies on X.

While a partnership between Cardano and Elon Musk has not yet materialized, the potential for future collaboration remains a topic of interest. Hoskinson’s readiness to contribute to X’s success illustrates his ongoing commitment to expanding the influence and application of blockchain technology in various sectors.
