It’s all about purpose  

Hoskinson recently sat down with Cheddar to discuss numerous issues that are related to his project. In the light of a recent spat between Vitalik Buterin and Justin Sun, one of the most obvious questions was why different projects would choose Cardano over Ethereum and Tron. Hoskinson claims that ‘it’s not about who’s first to market, or how quickly they can upgrade something’ since they have to build a global infrastructure for seven billion people. In fact, he even praised Sun, calling him ‘a very nice guy.’
