A study of the correlation between Mr Charles Hoskinson’s beard, travels, food, leisure and Cardano ADA price

A study of the correlation between Mr Charles Hoskinson’s beard, travels, food, leisure and Cardano ADA price

The purpose of this study is to determine whether there is a correlation between Mr. Charles Hoskinson’s beard, travels, food, leisure activities and the price of Cardano ADA.

Even though we employed all scientific advances known to mankind at the time of this writing, we should probably, preemptively, warn our readers that this study is by no means serious, accurate, factual or, as some would rather put it, real.

About Charles Hoskinson

As you may well know, Mr. Hoskinson is the CEO of IOHK, the Research and Development company which is developing the ADA cryptocurrency.


Our totally scientifically proven peer reviewed methodology consists of rigorously browsing tweets when the boss isn’t looking, all while hovering the mouse over live CoinMarketCap.com price charts in order to see the little popup containing ADA price at that point in time.

Using this strategy we were able to employ sophisticated machine learning artificial intelligence algorithms in the MS Word big data environment in order to determine whether Mr. Hoskinson’s food and travel has influenced cryptocurrency price fluctuations.

Short Break for Global Context

We now take a break to offer some mutable global context. We are almost reaching the top of a straight ramp down between ADA price and Bitcoin price. From here it is linearly downhill, as shown by the orange plot. The green plot shows the U$ price which oscillated up with Bitcoin’s recovery but seems to point in a different direction now.

Chart Analysis

April 2019 Update

While we haven’t had time to update you on all the places Mr. Hoskinson has visited since this post was published 14 months ago, we can report that Cardano price has fallen an additional -67% in U$ since the last time we checked.

Current Cardano price : 1 ADA = U$ 0,09

September 2019 Update

Charles Hoskinson blocked us.

ADA now worth U$ 0.03


While this study by no means claims to be scientific, the data does suggest that Mr. Hoskinson’s travels, food or decision to shave may have taken a slight toll on the price of Cardano ADA.

We can’t give you back the 3 minutes you’ve just invested in reading this, but we can thank you for your visit while wishing you stay safe during the 2020 pandemic. By the way, the price of ADA has recovered well in 2020 and we certainly hope it continues on its way up for the near future.
