A Twitter spat is causing trouble for the ethereum blockchain network

As investors grow restless about the slow development pace of ethereum—an open-source computing platform powered by cryptocurrency—a vocal minority may have unwisely driven away one of the project’s longest-tenured developers after an online spat. Afri Schoedon, who has contributed to ethereum since 2015, almost entirely in unpaid roles, cheekily tweeted the following on Feb. 15:

“‘Polkadot delivers what Serenity ought to be.’ Change my mind.”

He has since deleted the tweet.
