On September 26, Hoskinson posted on his official Twitter account:

We are a cult beholden to an evil, sociopathic, but incompetent pathological lying founder who somehow has stumbled upon stolen success, but will be in jail any moment now when the world wakes up. It would be offensive if it wasn’t so batshit crazy.

Additionally, Hoskinson claimed that the end result is that it just hurts the crypto industry, adoption, and collaboration. This meant that many crypto users are now forced into design decisions that would hurt them instead of helping them.

Moreover, Cardano’s co-founder mentioned that  Cardano continues to deliver on its potential to be something better for the world’s systems after every hard fork combinator event. Cardano’s community continues to grow and evolve.

Hoskinson claimed that the Cardano community has been good at solving real-life problems. Hoskinson also mentioned that he was proud of the progress of the Cardano community and promises the community would change the crypto industry’s behavior.
