Charles Hoskinson : Token Burn Increase Market Volatility
On the other hand, Cardano has a total supply of 45 billion ADA which is more than Bitcoin’s supply positioned at 21 million. Hence, the community is under discussion regarding token burn which will push ADA’s price rally.
This token burning is a method used to reduce the total supply of a particular currency so that it creates demand. This in turn will fuel the currency’s price action. However, even though this method has helped many currencies, Cardano founder Charles Hoskinson has opposed token burning.
This is because he believes this method doesn’t create any fundamental value to the network and also he views this method as manipulative. Moreover, Hoskinson claims token burn will bring down liquidity and increase market volatility impacting investors.
Hence, the Cardano network mainly focuses on upgrading its technology rather than token burning which is a short term solution.
