Charles Hoskinson Reveals a Possible Personality behind Cardano’s Censorship on Wikipedia’s PoS Page

Charles Hoskinson, the CEO of IOHK has recently revealed a possible personality behind the Cardano (ADA) censorship on Wikipedia’s Proof-of-Stake (PoS) page.

A few days ago, Herald Sheets reported the attempts made by OraTube, an unofficial channel about Oracle, to update the advancement going on with Cardano (ADA).

The channel, however, reported that all its attempts to do the needful were continuously aborted by an unknown personality, which was eventually termed as censorship by the internet encyclopedia, Wikipedia.

Charles Hoskinson Reveals Possible Personality behind the Censorship

Since the incident played out, the Cardano community has been making inquiries to get to the root of the so-called censorship by Wikipedia.

When Charles Hoskinson instructed OraTube to file a complaint to Wikipedia, the channel responded as follows, “I was instructed to suggest an edit on the POS ‘talk’ page. The user who deleted the entry says he doesn’t care about the topic but is not happy process is being followed.”

Some hours later, OraTube reported its attempt to follow the instruction given by Wikipedia after a complaint was filed, but the further difficulty suggested that a personality that has no interest in the advancement going on with Cardano (ADA) is the one behind the censorship.

OraTube shared this, “Even when I stand back and let others edit the page, I get admins coming after me…I’ve asked to leave but apparently I can’t delete my Wikipedia account. These admins seem like bullies to me. Who has the most admin privileges wins.”

After some findings personally conducted by Charles Hoskinson, he came up with a name, coupled with an incident from 2016.

“Yes David Gerard is the one who has been a censor. It has been going on for years since the Ethereum days. I don’t know why he hates us so or where his ego comes from,” Charles Hoskinson revealed.

Conclusively, with the look of things and the above findings, Wikipedia as a platform has no intention to censor Cardano (ADA) and its advancement on its PoS page as earlier envisaged.
