The new social platform has so far received a lukewarm reception, with members of the community mainly complaining about its cringeworthy name. “We are not part of a clan,” a Twitter user wrote. “I suggest an immediate rebranding before even launching, Cardano Clan does NOT sound good,” another member of the community complained.

As reported by U.Today, Galaxy Digital CEO Mike Novogratz described the Cardano community as a “weird cult,” adding that he was shocked by its valuation.
