Charles Hoskinson, the creator of Cardano (ADA), has some hours ago announced the official launch of his own staking pool known as RATS Pool.
According to Hoskinson, the name “RATS Pool” originated from the CEO of Blockstream, Adam Back. The pool is run by the CEO of IOG and Samuel Leathers.
He thereby urged the Cardano community members to start delegating their ADA on his pool that is currently up and running.
Charles Hoskinson tweeted, “The Charles Pool is now up and running. Thanks to Adam Back for the name. I’m king of the RATS, (https://pooltool.io/pool) feel free to delegate everyone”

Why Charles Hoskinson Attributed the Name “Rat Pool” To Adam Back
The name RATS Pool originated from a ranking initiated by the Blockstream CEO, Adam Back sometime in August 2020.
The Bitcoin advocate claimed that Hoskinson has a better understanding of Bitcoin and the application of mathematics than the self-acclaimed Satoshi, Craig Wright, and Ethereum co-creator, Vitalik Buterin.
Back then, Adam Back also claimed that the creator of Cardano is better than the founder of Tron (TRX), Justin Sun.
Currently, Charles Hoskinson has “King of the Rats” on his Twitter bio, which is an indication of an outright acceptance of Adam Back’s ranking.
Cardano Ecosystem Inching Closer to Goguen Era
The upcoming Mary mainnet deployment is one of the two hard forks required to usher in the Goguen era that’s coming to incorporate various decentralized services and solutions.
Additionally, Goguen is expected to welcome a number of third-party developers into the Cardano ecosystem, which should greatly increase interest in the digital token ADA.
In a nutshell, users should expect improved scalability, performance, and cost-efficient transactions on the Cardano network after the launch of Goguen.
