Bitcoin maxi taunts Cardano founder; Hoskinson strikes back

Bitcoin maxi taunts Cardano founder; Hoskinson strikes back

Amid a massively bullish price action by the majority of assets in the cryptocurrency market, the sector is not short of drama elsewhere – particularly among its most notable people, including Cardano (ADA) founder Charles Hoskinson and Bitcoin (BTC) maximalist Max Keiser.

Specifically, in the most recent altercation, Keiser reignited the animosities by taking a jab at Hoskinson, sharing a video of workers pulling out from a hole a person covered in what appears to be oil sludge or fecal matter and captioning it “Charles Hoskinson emerges from his shitcoin lair,” in an X post on February 8.

In response, the Cardano founder was quick to retort by making some light-hearted fun of the Bitcoin exclusivity advocate and advisor to the president of El Salvador by stating that “ratings must be low” for Keiser, suggesting he was trying to bring some of the social media attention back by picking a fight.

Hoskinson vs. Keiser

As it happens, the ongoing feud between the two crypto titans has a long history, including Keiser slamming Cardano and its pioneer after Hoskinson criticized the potential impact of the tax policies imposed on the markets by United States President Joe Biden’s administration.

More recently, Cardano’s founder has attracted some negativity from the Bitcoin maximalist crowd when he stated that the crypto sector no longer depended on the flagship decentralized finance (DeFi) asset to survive, albeit acknowledging its role in establishing the industry, as Finbold reported on December 10.

Meanwhile, Cardano was at press time changing hands at the price of $0.54, recording a 0.81% increase in the last 24 hours, adding up to the 3.08% gain across the previous seven days and advancing 5.23% on its monthly chart, as per data on February 9.
