Former co-founder of BitShares, Ethereum and Ethereum Classic, Charles Hoskinson, has exposed some Wikipedia moderators of intentional commercial censorship. Hoskinson announced this on his Twitter page, posting a post from the broadcast on Periscope.

According to Hoskinson, Wikipedia moderators have removed the English-language page about the Cardano cryptocurrency due to a lack of “academic footnotes and cryptocurrency citation” in high-profile circles..

The head of Input Output Hong Kong (IOHK), which is directly involved in the development of the Cardano blockchain, believes that individual Wikipedia moderators are actually engaged in “commercial censorship.” Despite the IOHK’s citation by the former Prime Minister of Georgia, the Cardano Foundation’s participation in the World Economic Forum in 2020 and the partnership with Harvard University, Wikipedia, according to Hoskinson, considers it “insignificant” for publishing a project page on the website.

Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales called Hoskinson’s claim that Wikipedia does not view academic journals and conferences hosted by major universities and academia as a “lie”.

“My 1992 video game seems to merit an article, but not a $ 3 billion ecosystem backed by science,” wrote the head of IOHK.

“Corrupt resource”

Hoskinson claims that the English-language page about the project was removed by moderator David Gerard “due to a lack of credible sources.” Later, the founder of Wikipedia was caught completely unwilling to conduct a dialogue with those who disagree with the site’s policy..

“The fact that you, as the founder of Wikipedia, have allowed your organization and your editors to commercially censor viable projects … I don’t care if you like them or not. They are famous and relevant. And then [you] lie about it [censoring] on Twitter. This is mean and disgusting, “- said Hoskinson.

The head of Cardano added that exactly this kind of defiant behavior should be strong proof that people should not cite the online encyclopedia as an irrefutable source. According to the chief developer of Cardano, he contacted Amazon and Google, and all that the IT giants remember about Wikipedia is that the service is too “corrupt”.

It is noteworthy that David Gerard, who removed the page about Cardano, has long been known in the English-speaking community as an ardent opposition to cryptocurrencies. At the end of August, for example, Gerard reported on the removal of the page of the Power Ledger cryptocurrency project, which, in his opinion, was advertised in every possible way in press releases, but the only genuine mention of the project covered his fraudulent activities..

In January 2020, Gerard wrote on his page on the official blog that he considers the entire cryptocurrency industry “one big field full of spammers”.
