Cardano Founder Challenged By Polymarket To Bet On His Project, Will He Commit?

In a genius marketing move, Polymarket – an Ethereum blockchain based prediction platform made a bet to the Cardano founder Charles Hoskinson, challenging him regarding the progress on his own platform. The bet is simple and asks the following question. Will Cardano support smart contracts on Mainnet by October 1st, 2021? It started with Mr Hoskinson first quoting the Polymarket bet page and saying how these people make him laugh.

Polymarket responded by placing the actual bet on July 15, declaring that more funny than the bet is Cardano still not having any smart contract functionality. Cardano has been in development since 2015 and is slated to have smart contracts support by this year’s end. That wasn’t all! They also bet the billionaire $50,000 to actually “put his money where his mouth is!” by taking the opposite side of the bet that the blockchain isn’t likely to feature smart contracts by Oct 2021.
