Ethereum Core Developer Quits Social Media after Incessant Trolling

Ethereum core developer Afri Schoedon has abandoned social media due to criticism. “Until further notice, you can reach me via [email protected], on Telegram using changing handles, and on Parity’s Riot/Github.

news - Ethereum Core Developer Quits Social Media after Incessant Trolling

Ethereum core developer Afri Schoedon has abandoned social media due to criticism. “Until further notice, you can reach me via [email protected], on Telegram using changing handles, and on Parity’s Riot/Github. I will no longer respond on Gitter, Skype, Discord, Slack, Wire, Twitter, and Reddit,” he said in a cryptic message. 

The sudden exile was sparked by Schoeden comparing Ethereum against an upcoming project called Polkadot. The developer, among other things, shilled the latter while FUDing about the former. He said, “From a legacy chain client developer perspective, this will be a hell of a task to maintain the $ETH 1.x chain for another 2 or 3 years. From a d-app or contract developer perspective, projects like *#*Polkadot will be much more interesting because you can already use them in 2019.”

Taking the discussion on Reddit and other social media handles, a user said, “This, among other tweets and communication, is painting a narrative that intentionally misrepresents Polkadot and attempts to damage ETH. There are far more constructive ways that this discussion could be framed, and we should expect better from implementors that have received 5 million dollars to build ETH 2.0 just a few months ago.”
