Ethereum developers, Cardano founder Charles Hoskinson get into a Twitter feud


Cardano (ADA) founder Charles Hoskinson got into a war of words with Ethereum (ETH) developers as he criticized them for ignoring Ouroboros.

Ouroboros is a secure proof-of-stake protocol and the first blockchain protocol based on peer-reviewed research running on Cardano’s blockchain.

According to him, Ethereum developers have ignored Ouroboros for the last five years, and the Ethereum core community is hating on Cardano.

He described the Ethereum developers as viewing the Cardano community as a “cult beholden to an evil, sociopathic, but incompetent pathological lying founder who somehow has stumbled upon stolen success, but will be in jail any moment now when the world wakes up.”

In his view, Ethereum developers are stuck on technology from 2014, adding that they need to grow and move on.

Hoskinson continued that the result of this hurts the industry as it makes it more difficult for adoption and collaboration. He added that users are on the losing end of this animosity as they are forced into design decisions that hurt them.

Hoskinson said:

“Cardano doesn’t need cryptocurrency to be successful in order to succeed. Mass adoption hasn’t happened yet, and we can grow to billions of users without poaching a single one from Bitcoin or Ethereum.”

Ethereum developer counters Hoskinson

Ethereum developer Hudson Jameson countered claims about the animosity between both communities, saying Hoskinson heavily criticized Ethereum while building Cardano.

Jameson continued that Ethereum developers don’t want to look at Cardano because of Hoskinson’s attitude and actions. He said:

“Real leaders usually have more tact when dealing with their competitors.”

The developer also stated that Ethereum cofounder Vitalik Buterin had reviewed Ouroboros previously. Hoskinson described Buterin’s review as “lackluster.”

Hoskinson defended his actions, stating that he doesn’t represent Cardano and the over 150 papers from the network.

Hoskinson says PoS brand is ‘stained’ because of Ethereum

The Cardano founder claimed that Ethereum’s migration to proof-of-stake stains other blockchain networks running on the consensus mechanism because they would be “unfairly compared” to ETH.

According to Hoskinson, when the locked-up staked coins are released, it would lead to “another cascading decline from sudden surges of liquidity.”

In his view, Ethereum developers should have implemented snow white protocol to ensure a faster migration to PoS.

The snow white PoS consensus is “the first formal, end-to-end proof of a Proof-of-Stake system in a truly decentralized, open-participation network.” It was co-authored by Elaine Shi, a professor at Cornell University.

Hoskinson had previously criticized ETH’s implementation of PoS because it required users to lock up their funds indefinitely.
