After a Twitter spat with Cardano’s Charles Hoskinson, Dogecoin co-founder Bily Markus extended an “olive branch” apologizing for being overtly hostile and stirring up unnecessary tensions.
“I do have respect for all those who are contributing to making crypto more useful and scale better I was overly hostile unnecessarily, and want to apologize, and hope you and ADA are successful”.
The founder of Cardano tweeted in response, “We got this,” thanking Markus for the peace proposal and expressing regret for similar comments in the past.
Crypto netizens were swooning over the friendly gesture with one commenting, “This is the first time I’ve seen an exchange like this on Twitter. If we all worked together, the crypto industry would be very formidable”.
“Building friendships in the bear market is like free hugs post-BTC halving” tweeted another.
Just the other day, the Cardano and IOHK head proposed his vision for a decentralized Twitter in a video addressed to Elon Musk. The Tesla and SpaceX CEO recently took control of the social media platform after a chaotic legal battle.
Musk who is also a DOGE proponent has on many occasions expressed his intention of making DOGE the official token for Twitter.
Cardano Vs Dogecoin; The Twitter Spat Where It All Began
Hoskinson in his 59 min long video pitched ideas for a joint collaboration between the two ecosystems and ways to increase incentives for both ADA and DOGE mining pools.
However, the lukewarm response from the DOGE community members and the subsequent removal of his video by the moderators on the Dogecoin Reddit, along with Markus’ angry response resulted in a verbal exchange between the two founders.
The co-creator of Doge tweeted that Elon Musk doesn’t really care about Hoskinson’s “dumbass rant” on DOGE and referred to his video as “hypocritical whining and misinformation” when the latter complained that the video had been removed.
Markus also criticized the price performance of the ADA coin, claiming that the drop in 2018 didn’t prompt “regulators to jump in.”
Hoskinson defended by saying that ADA has actual use and utility unlike a meme coin and stressed that his proposal wouldn’t change doge but instead use it as an airdrop target and isolate Twitter’s needs from the existing chain.
