The CEO of Input Output HK (IOHK), Charles Hoskinson, has recently averred that hundreds of operators will be running Cardano (ADA) by August 2020, probably after the launch of Shelley.
Hoskinson made this statement while reacting to the tweet shared by a personality that identified himself as a Cardano Ambassador on Twitter, Rick McCracken of Digi Stake Pool, about “DIGI coming up on the Cardano HTN with the new beast server Cardano Shelley Testnets.”
He further stated that thousands of operators will also be running Hydra channels, Oracles, and several other decentralized services in a few years’ time, which he believes will be the outcome of true decentralization through resilience.
