Hoskinson, in his recent tweet, wrote:

“Ok- final final- housekeeping piece of info. There is no partnership or collaboration with Tron. There is no endorsement of Tron. I just recommended to Justin to use Mantis as EthereumJ isn’t a solid or safe codebase to work with and they are building on the JVM.”

The tweet was posted as a clarification to Cardano’s followers, on the misinformation containing rumor of the partnership between Cardano and Tron.

Hoskinson also told his followers in the comments that Mantis is written in Scala and is ‘the most concise and elegant Ethereum full node running at around only 12,000 lines of code’. Moreover, the code is security audited and the consensus is pluggable for a DPoS style protocol.

Mantis project is an Ethereum client and was built exclusively for Ethereum Classic. The beta version was released in August 2017. Mantis was made available for the entire user-base of Ethereum Classic by integrating it with Cardano’s Daedalus wallet, which is used to store Cardano’s native coin ADA.

Kevin Cerroni, a Cardano-fan and follower, also wrote:

“Thank God cause I don’t share his vision at all. #ADA #Cardano”

Meatfish, in another comment, said:

“Could you not just shill it a little bit? Then I could dump my TRX bag and buy more ADA… Pretty please?”

At press time, Cardano [ADA] is trading at $0.141, with a market cap of $3.6 billion after seeing a 3.42% rise in the last 24 hours. The 24-hour trading volume is over $115 million.
