Charles Hoskinson, the creator of Cardano and a co-founder of Ethereum, recently engaged in a verbal spat with developers of Ethereum over the Ethereum Merge’s implementation of the proof-of-stake (PoS) consensus on twitter.
Evan Van Ness, an investor in Web3, had a view that did not get much support on Sunday when he said that the Ethereum Merge might have been deployed sooner. In response to Van Ness’s statements, Ethereum’s co-founder Vitalik Buterin said that he agreed with them and that they should have developed a chain-based PoS consensus similar to that of NXT.
Hoskinson responded in the discussion:
Snow White, a protocol that Hoskinson has been promoting for years, is one of the first protocols that provides end-to-end, formal proofs of security for a PoS system. This makes it one of the most secure protocols currently available.
However, Hoskinson’s remark unleashed a swarm of worms, which ultimately resulted in a violent argument between the inventor of Cardano and Van Ness, as well as other engineers working on ETH.
Hoskinson said that his thoughts from 2014 on the technological enhancements on the Ethereum network still have superior validity than what the Ethereum network has upgraded to after the Merge.
Van Ness swiftly reminded Hoskinson that he was terminated from his position at Ethereum during the first six months of his employment due to his terrible conduct and his inability to make any substantial contributions on a technical level.
