Charles! If the election for President was held tomorrow between all the potential candidates. Who would you vote for? Feel free to give reasons "why" and your "why nots" since we all know politicians come with a mixed bag of eccentricities, values, and understandings on the subjects being deposed to them on any given day.

Since smart contracts are relatively small programs it makes sense to use a purely functional language like Aiken which compiles to UPLC. Is a purely functional smart contract architecture and EuTxO the future or is there room for other paradigms?

Charles! Love your AMAs. Have you ever looked into Centerpointe Research Institute? They are one of the two major groups which first developed brain entrainment using binaural beats to induce deeper states of consciousness.

Human governed organizations ultimately often end in failure because the governance eventually reaches a point of corruption from which there is no return. Why not create a protocol to keep, for example, human governance (or even AI for that matter) of Cardano's DAO and constitution in check, so it gives these two as much protection from centralized corruption as the consensus protocol gives to the txs on the network?

As far as being a stake pool operator (SPO), is it possible for one stake pool to handle mainnet and also sidechains simultaneously? For additional detail: I see a lot of SPOs having more than one stake pool, e.g.: POOL, POOL2, POOL3, etc. My question focuses on one stake pool, so let's say POOL2. Can POOL2 handle transactions from mainnet and 1-N sidechains, at least theoretically? This is an important question because it offers more incentivization in terms of yield for an SPO.

Thanks for taking the time to address some of our questions. I bought into ADA based on your vision and hard work which made me believe in the project.

Do you think Cardano will convert to a mutable supply of ADA? Is there any safeguard against this? It seems a mutable supply is the obvious outcome with code that can be changed by governance.

Many of us entered for the immutable supply w/programmability & governance. We also felt the trilemma was being solved here...but at what cost?

Can you draw parallels between Blockchain and Stephan Wolfram's physics project? More specifically are there connections to be made between Input Endorsers and Wolfram's ideas about Multicomputation? Thanks, $wildoy

How do you envision Native Tokens becoming useful? Crypto used to be "we fight inflation" yet anyone can launch a token. IMO it's confusing for onboarding avg users. Seems to be a day trading scheme for nerds. How could it be used as an actual currency with such price fluctuations?

Can you explain why you need a side chain and additional token for midnight? How does this compare to other cardano features such as Marlowe or hydra which do not need additional tokens?

Hi Charls, how to oversight design decisions taken from "trusted" institutions like the Cardano foundation, where there was no voting? Could you comment on the latest unpopular cardano-foundation-updates-delegation-strategy... https://forum.cardano.org/t/cardano-foundation-updates-delegation-strategy/122773/132?u=francd

Hi, would it be good to have Native tokens functionality expanded to have freezable/not-freezable asset as an option when minting? Could this be of use for some stablecoins/future regulation/liquidity inflow, just to have it present as option at protocol level?

Hi Charles, would you be interested in creating an objective media platform that tells objective facts about what's happening in the world? In your recent X space, you talked about Biden saying "We'll give $100 billion to Israel and Ukraine", and you explained what that really means: he's basically going to spend half of all US taxes on proxy wars. I would love to have an objective media source that connects the dots like that. You're the best. Love you!

Hi Charles, as a crypto passionate artist I was wondering what's the philosophy behind the marvellous cardano logo and who is the designer? Keep up the great work.

Hi - I saw that you recently were using Ubuntu Linux as a desktop. Curious if you made the switch entirely, or are using it separate of your Windows environment. How's the change going?

Current speculation surrounding AI predicts almost all jobs will be replaced in the future by the technology. In regards to jobs that are easily automated i.e. accounting, payroll, finance officers etc. how can implementing blockchain(s) to govern decentralised large language models mitigate this? Or is it an inevitability? Thanks Charles!

Can you compare Cardano Partnerchains to Polkadot Parachains? How are they similar? How are they different? And could a chain be both a Partnerchain and a Parachain at the same time? Thanks! - $wildoy

What do you think the reason IPFS isn't used more for web2 projects? Is it primarily an incentivization problem or is it more its strengths / weaknesses don't cater to highest demand case (large files / infrequent usage)?

Let's say there is a rich beautiful princess. She is young and has an unnatural infatuation with Charles Hoskinson; in fact she has a poster of Charles above her bed. She is so committed, she purchased over 1 billion Cardano, and staked them on 1,000 different stake pools. Sadly, after she hid her hard wallets where no one could find them, she died from an unfortunate masterbation accident on her bed. Here is the question, over time will those staked accounts own all the Cardano?

In the year 2043, a young man in a small South American town mows a lawn for his neighbor for .5 Cardano. Afterwards he goes to the local store and buys a soda for .05 Cardano. How do you anticipate these transactions happening? Can it be done in Cardano, or is an L2 going to be more appropriate? How does the shop owner pay sales tax?
