Charles Hoskinson, the founder of Cardano, again lamented the massive spike in bots on Twitter.

In a recent tweet, the founder of Cardano shared a screenshot from his Twitter account showing that Vitalik Buterin, the co-founder of Ethereum, is now among his followers on the microblogging platform.

Hoskinson shared the screenshot with a caption, “Biggest bot evidence yet on Twitter. Vitalik following me? This will never happen.

While the bone of contention concerns the massive increase in bots on Twitter, crypto enthusiasts wonder if Hoskinson and Buterin have a strained relationship.

The strained relationship between Hoskinson and Buterin

It should be noted that Hoskinson and Buterin were co-founders of Ethereum. However, due to the diversity of their visions, Hoskinson left Ethereum to establish Cardano.

While Hoskinson was pushing for Ethereum to be a for-profit organization, Buterin along with the other founders of the main blockchain project wanted a non-profit organization for Ethereum.

Based on the diversity of visions, Hoskinson left Ethereum and later created the popular proof-of-stake network, Cardano.

Last year, it seemed cryptocurrency pundits put the feud behind them after Hoskinson noted that he and Hoskinson had grown a lot.

The Cardano founder also worried about his former colleague earlier this year after Buterin blasted the EOS project.

Massive spike in Twitter bots

The peak of Twitter bot activity was largely condemned by platform users. Bots are used by malefactors to trick unsuspecting cryptocurrency owners into investing in different scam schemes.

These bots have been used to impersonate prominent players in the crypto space, including Binance Changpeng Zhao, Tesla’s Elon Musk, and Buterin, among others.

Major cryptocurrency players, including Cardano founder Charles Hoskinson, have weighed in on the issue of massive Twitter bot activity. As reported by TheCryptoBasic, Hoskinson recently asked his followers if they had observed a spike in comments from bots on different tweets.
