Cardano Founder Reacts to Ethereum Classic (ETC) Twitter Account Suspension

After the turmoil over the alterations made to the Ethereum Classic Twitter account earlier this month, Twitter has officially suspended the account.

Response from Charles Hoskinson, the creator of Cardano, was recently made in response to the suspension of the account, which boasted more than 600,000 followers.

Hoskinson, a member of the Cardano community, informed Cardano members of the suspension of the ETH Classic Twitter account, which he said crossed his desk just a few minutes ago. “Is it true that the account was suspended just now?” he tweeted.

The Ethereum Classic founder noted that despite the “dramatization,” Ethereum Classic could still lose all 670,000 followers.”

Conflict Between Hoskinson and Ethereum Classic

In the past few days, the Twitter account of the popular Proof-of-Work (PoW) network Ergo, one of the most popular blockchains for Proof-of-Work (PoW), has been changed to one for Ethereum Classic (ERG). In an interview with Bob Summerville, ETC Cooperative’s executive director, he explained what had changed.

According to Summerville, the issue arose due to Ethereum Classic Cooperative’s decision to refuse to support Input Output Hong Kong’s in-protocol treasury charge of 20%.

ETC’s Twitter account management was handed over to Hoskinson after the Cardano team became outraged. Ethereum Classic community member Hoskinson was challenged to return the account to the project by a member of the ETC community.

In response to the user, Hoskinson replied that he owned the account and that he could not recoup the millions of dollars invested in development and the years spent maintaining a blockchain that simply wanted to keep the status quo.
