Recently, the official national Japan TV Channel BS1 created a documentary about capitalism named “Capitalism – the Desire of 2019”. In a movie creators leverage whether market-oriented neoliberalism is advanced enough or whether state intervention is necessary.
Starting from the 57th minute of the movie’s timeline the CEO of ADA Charles Hoskinson goes on air with the message for the world, saying:
“What Bitcoin did, is Bitcoin tought the whole world that belief doesn’t have to be given to us by a government, that belief doesn’t have to be given to us by a pope or a king, or a prestigious bank. We can just decide for ourselves. Now, if you don’t like it – you just build something better. You don’t like your payments system – you just build something better.”
and then added,
“Three billion people live in a situation where they can’t get credit, they can’t get insurance, their businesses can’t get the funding that they need to get to the next level and this ecosystem (Editors note: decentralized) puts them all on the same playground and now for the first time ever in a human history you’ll have access to the same markets that Bill Gates has access to.”
The Middleman of Value
The founder of Cardano Charles Hoskinson concluded his speech by indicating that the ongoing decentralized revolution is all about eliminating a middleman who surges of a necessity and suggests that we can get rid of that by using smart contracts and blockchains, then it becomes the middleman of value.

Documentary created by Japan BS1 channel is not the only one television where Cardano team took place. National broadcast TV station（NHK）introduced Cardano as a reliable and scientific project in its TV also.
Cardano was also described as an active community project.
To conclude, Cardano did huge improvement with its recent Cardano 1.4 release, which brings major enhancements while simultaneously resolving some network connection issues that affect many users previously. Also, the update brings remarkable improvements with regards to the hard drive space needed to store the blockchain and more.
Furthermore, IOHK published the Proof of Proof of Stake (PoS) paper. The paper is fundamental to having sidechains on PoS systems and is the first rigorous definition of sidechains in PoS. This development might have a huge impact on Cardano and cryptocurrencies in general.
