After tons of requests from various quarters in the crypto community, the Twitter account of the CEO of IOG, Charles Hoskinson, has finally received the much-anticipated blue checkmark.
In order to mitigate the perpetration of scammers and impersonators that have been taking advantage of his personality to defraud unsuspecting members of the crypto community, verification is needed.
It can be recalled that Charles Hoskinson took to Twitter on 16th March to inform the Cardano community that he’s considering leaving the microblogging platform permanently, if it fails to verify his account, citing tons of con artists taking advantage of his personality to defraud crypto newbies.
Charles Hoskinson tweeted, “If there is no path to verification, then I’m considering leaving Twitter. It seems to be the only way to resolve the impersonation issues. I’m disappointed with Twitter they just don’t seem to care about fraud, scams, and impersonation.”
A number of crypto big guns, such as Aleksandra Huk, one of the most popular women in the crypto community, also solicited the much-needed verification on behalf of the creator of Cardano (ADA), Charles Hoskinson.
Aleksandra Huk tweeted, “Can we all agree that Charles Hoskinson @IOHK_Charles should get his account verified? Besides his great achievements, he has many imposters. There are many scams, especially when it comes to crypto. Twitter should protect it’s users, @jack please do something.”
