Charles Hoskinson, founder of Cardano and formerly a critic of XRP, has cut ties with the XRP community due to continued criticism from the XRP army after his “conspiracy” comments during a recent online interview. Hoskinson said he has been trolled and harassed by some XRP followers for many days. Meanwhile, XRP influencer XRPcryptowolf assures Charles Hoskinson that the XRP community is friends with the Cardano (ADA) community.
Hoskinson Says XRP Community Has Lost An Ally
In a tweet posted on October 11, Charles Hoskinson announced that he had cut ties with the XRP community. He blamed the XRP army for continuing to troll and harass him for a misunderstood comment related to Ripple and XRP.
“I think I’ve blocked most of the XRP trolls who continue to harass unprovoked. I’ve never seen a group so radically pick up a few words and run with it. Great job turning an ally into someone disgusted and totally checked out.”
XRP influencer XRPcryptowolf replied that the community is friends with the ADA community. The crypto Twitter can sometimes be radically insulting and full of trolls. He asked Charles Hoskinson to not stereotype an entire community based on a few trolls. It is time to be united for Ripple.
Charles Hoskinson said:
“It isn’t a few trolls. It’s been an endless harassment campaign for days. I’m done with it. I want nothing more to do with XRP. The community has accomplished nothing but harming itself.”
Moreover, Hoskinson explained his distress with the criticism faced by the XRP community. The XRP army even called for Charles Hoskinson's background on Ethereum to be investigated despite he has been with Ethereum for 6 months. He earlier desired to work with Ripple and CEO Brad Garlinghouse on a proof-of-stake project. Meanwhile, the ADA price has dived 8% from a high of $0.54 to $0.48 in recent trading.
Cardano Founder Clarified His Views On XRP
Cardano founder Charles Hoskinson earlier clarified his comments on Ripple and XRP. He confirmed that XRP is a commodity. Moreover, he blames legislative bodies for being negligent in passing crypto laws and resolving issues. Thus, it forces regulators the SEC and the CFTC to over-regulate the crypto market based on unfeasible regulations.
Moreover, Hoskinson earlier mentioned that XRP and ADA projects have accomplished new milestones.
