Charles Hoskinson, the founder of Cardano (ADA), went on a tirade against the YouTube personality Ran Neuner, accusing Neuner of being dishonest and biased. Hoskinson’s tirade was explosive.
Hoskinson leveled the accusation against Neuner in a tweet, saying that Neuner was “shilling for Solana and Luna” while giving Cardano an inaccurate representation.
On Twitter, Charles O called out Neuner for what he considered to be “shamefully dishonest” reporting on the progress that has been made with Cardano’s development.
The well-known YouTube personality is being accused of promoting a report from a venture capital firm that exaggerates the amount of developer engagement on Cardano.
Critics of Cardano argue that the blockchain is “vaporware” since there is little to no development activity, despite the fact that the blockchain constantly ranks among the top blockchains according to the amount of commits it receives on Github.
The most recent comments instantly sparked conversations regarding integrity concerns around Neuner’s reporting throughout the broader crypto industry.
Charles O makes the case that Neuner is only trying to “sell his own book” by making this argument. “You really shouldn’t be in the United States right now. Here, we are responsible for prosecuting financial offenses”, he stated.
However, some people pointed out that, despite having a reasonably high number of developers working on the core protocol, Cardano actually has very few developers building within the ecosystem. This is one of the reasons why such criticism is not entirely baseless.
Cardano has maintained its position as the eighth-largest cryptocurrency when measured by market capitalization.
