The Cardano creator is urging his followers not to give up after a major blow in the U.S. Senate.
After the U.S. Senate failed the cryptocurrency industry, IOHK CEO Charles Hoskinson is now willing to take it to the streets.
The Cardano creator has tweeted about making phone calls to organize a rally in Washington D.C.
“I think it’s about time we get a rally going in Washington DC. I’m going to make some phone calls. More on this later.”

He said in his latest video:
“Just watched live the senate, it was a really tense moment, listen to senators speaking how badly this bill can damage the crypto industry.
Everyone for the last few days has been calling their senators, Knocking down doors, getting to a point that we need to be pass the amendment. Then on the floor a 87 year old man (Senator Richard Shelby) that i don’t even think knows how a computer works, objected the amendment.
These senators, these 87-year-old living fossils, showed the entire world that they were willing to sell the future of our country’s economy out, if they didn’t get their pork.
I remembered Richard Nixon said the greatness comes not when things go always well for you, but the greatness comes when you are really tested. So we are not out of fight, we are not done, we are still here, we as industry came together and each and every one of you fought. So we are not going down that easy.
We must get louder, we must push, even if this bill passes, this does not get into effect until 2023, but lets start pushing for new legislations, I am not going to give up. i will rally a tired less minority ever single day to make this their issue until we change this, until we get this done. Because at the end of the day i am an American, i live in America, i am not moving anywhere. I am not go to find a golden visa in Greece or UAE. I am born here and i am going to die here. And i want this country to be better.
I have no intention of living in a dying empire, and every other American listening feels the same way, so we cannot allow some 87 year old, aged passed, to stand in the way of progress of this nation so we need to work together.”
