    Solomon has a growing passion for writing, this propelled him to keenly work on Eagles News Media for about two years before delving into the cryptocurrency and Blockchain industry he finds more interesting. He worked as a crypto Journalist and Editor at NewsLogical before joining Herald Sheets, owing to the priceless experience he has accumulated since he became a contributor in the crypto community.




    The CEO of Cardano, Charles Hoskinson, whose community awaits the Hard Fork meant to prepare for Shelley mainnet, scheduled to play out today 20th February 2020, has hit back at Peter Todd, the Applied Cryptography Consultant for badmouthing the effort of Vatalik Buterin over the upgrade of Ethereum network.

    It turned out to be a faceoff thread on 19th February 2020 after the Editor in Chief of Marty’s Ƀent, a daily newsletter about Bitcoin specifically referred to the co-founder of Ethereum, Vitalik Buterin, as an enemy of Bitcoin in response to a sensitive comment made by Vitalik about the comparison between Ava and Bitcoin.

    Vitalik Buterin wrote this, “FWIW I think it’s very fair to treat ava and bitcoin as having similar levels of legitimacy. Ava has genuinely interesting tech and hasn’t scammed anyone. The fact that you see this as a *litmus test question* that I seem to fall on the wrong side of worries me.”

    Marty Bent responded thus, “Vitalik is an enemy of Bitcoin. Don’t let anyone try to convince you otherwise.”

    Another important personality in the crypto space Paul Sztorc responded to Marty Bent’s assertion in support of the genius in the Ethereum co-founder. In his response, he acknowledged the gravity of the Ethereum 2.0.

    He shared this, “Yes but this is actually a big upgrade for Vitalik. He used to “not even be” a viable enemy of Bitcoin. And –prepare to roll your eyes!– if Bitcoin had sidechain-constructor technology, he would still be that way. In fact, Bitcoiners would be singing the praises of his genius!”

    Peter Todd Badmouths Vitalik Buterin’s Effort, Cardano’s Charles Hoskinson Responds

    Peter Todd, an Applied Cryptography Consultant, reacted to Paul Sztorc’s acknowledgment with discontentment. He argued that Vitalik Buturin and his company of developers will remain an enemy of Bitcoin under any condition.

    “Vitalik and co would still be enemies of bitcoin if sidechains worked. There’s no way to make a ton of money with an ICO by developing a sidechain because they don’t use a separate token; sidechains were never an option for that crowd,” Peter Todd shared.

    This comment alone was a displeasure to the CEO of Cardano, Charles Hoskinson, who swiftly hit back at Peter Todd’s sentimental assertion.

    Charles shared, “It must be hard to find oxygen when you have your head so far up your own ass. Maybe that explains tweets like this one”

    Obviously, a tussle of supremacy abounds in the cryptocurrency ecosystem. No cryptographic project wants to lag behind in terms of development. However, as the thirst for development ranges within the ecosystem, staying together in unity to achieve the goal is the best for blockchain and cryptocurrency adoption.
