IOHK CEO Charles Hoskinson has once again sparred with Galaxy Digital CEO Mike Novogratz on Twitter after the latter called Cardano’s rally into question.
On Aug. 15, Novogratz tweeted that ADA, the native cryptocurrency of the largest proof-of-stake blockchain, occupying the third place on CoinMarketCap was “a mystery” to him.
He later added that none of the smartest people in the space that he had spoken to saw any traction on Cardano in terms of developer activity.
In turn, Hoskinson lashed out at Novogratz, accusing the former Goldman Sachs executive of being in cahoots with bankers and predicting that his recent statement will not age well.
Here I can fix this statement for you Mike: "I've spoken to twenty of the smartest bankers I know in the space, and zero of them saw cryptocurrencies having any traction" :) we all heard that one— Charles Hoskinson (@IOHK_Charles) August 15, 2021
Let's come back to his tweet every year. We'll call August 15th, Mike check-in day https://t.co/sax18Fe7XX
ADA is currently trading at $2.14 on major spot exchanges after yet another blistering rally.This is not the first time that the two have duked it out on social media.
Back in March, Hoskinson started pitching ADA to Novogratz, but it seems like they never had a conversation about the project.
The IOHK boss claimed that the fellow cryptocurrency billionaire was drinking from "the Ethereum Kool-Aid."
In June, Novogratz described Cardano as a “weird cult,” and received pushback from the community.
