Cardano’s Founder Mocks Ethereum Classic
ETC Cooperative executive director Bob Summerwill announced the suspension of the main verified Ethereum Classic Twitter account, eth classic, in a tweet. He claims that since Twitter didn’t offer any illuminating details, the cause of this is still unknown.
“I suspect it is likely an automatic false-positive action. Nothing controversial was posted. I have lodged an appeal. I do not suspect anybody reported it.”
Cardano founder, Charles Hoskinson, who got wind of the news, tweeted:
“This just crossed my desk a few minutes ago. Did the eth_classic Twitter handle seriously just get suspended?”
When a Twitter user suggested an appeal be made to restore the account, Hoskinson poked fun, saying: “I’m sure they will get a 70-paragraph email.”
Ethereum Classic project’s main account
In recent months, controversy has engulfed the Ethereum Classic project’s main account, which is currently suspended. It was said that Charles Hoskinson insisted on being the owner of the Twitter account.
Hoskinson asserts that he “owns” the main verified Ethereum Classic Twitter account, which has 600,000 followers. He says he won’t give it to the community so that it may be used productively. He won’t even think about selling it. Summerwill stated in a tweet on September 6 that “instead, he chooses to harm ETC.”
The controversy had the Ethereum Classic DAO community seeking a solution, tagging Twitter Support in a tweet:
“What is your proposed solution to the Ethereum Classic open-source project’s Twitter handle? Should we update the project’s Twitter account to a different handle? How do we solve the current issue?”
On October 6, Bob Summerwill claimed that Hoskinson had utilized the account for a different purpose, adding that “6 years of community service had been wiped.”
Since its creation in July 2016, the Ethereum Classic account has amassed over 600,000 followers, and it was used to post about Ethereum Classic until September 15.
The account was currently used as the community page for Ergo, a proof-of-work (PoW) blockchain that is related to Cardano and functions similarly to Ethereum.
