Scalability is a critical factor in the development and adoption of blockchain, and Cardano has been at the forefront of attention in this aspect. Recently, rumors emerged about the abandonment of the Hydra scaling project, triggering a firm response from Charles Hoskinson, co-founder of ADA.

In a statement on the X platform, Hoskinson categorically debunked the rumors, labeling them as “pure FUD” (fear, uncertainty, and doubt). He stated that the development team has not abandoned the Hydra project, which was launched in May 2023 with the purpose of improving transaction processing capacity and reducing costs on the ADA blockchain. Additionally, he emphasized that Hydra is a fundamental part of Cardano’s roadmap in its pursuit of scalability.

However, rumors were not limited to the abandonment of Hydra alone. There was also speculation about a shift in focus towards Hyperledger Firefly, which Hoskinson categorically denied. He explained that while Cardano has been exploring various solutions and collaborations in the blockchain space, the commitment to Hydra remains solid.

Hoskinson took the opportunity to emphasize the productivity and motivation of the development team. He stated that there is strong community engagement and that new protocol enhancements are being developed. Furthermore, he reiterated the importance of Hydra as a scaling solution for Cardano and mentioned the development of middleware to enable developers to build decentralized applications on the network.

On the other hand, there has been much talk about “partnerchains” in the Cardano ecosystem. Hoskinson has pointed out their importance in building a more interconnected and resilient ecosystem. In particular, he highlighted the partnership between ADA and World Mobile, a project facing significant challenges in creating a global-scale infrastructure.

Hoskinson emphasized that complex projects like World Mobile require the freedom to develop unique protocols tailored to their specific needs. Additionally, he reaffirmed Cardano’s commitment to supporting multiple chains to drive true Web3 applications.
