Afri Schoedon: Will not Return but Still a Friend of Ethereum

Ethereum has seen its value on upward momentum these days since February, plus the long-awaited Constantinople fork scheduled for implementation next week, the world’s second largest cryptocurrency is setting out with a good start in 2019. While its top developer, release manager at Parity Ethereum client, Afri Schoedon’s rage quit after intense criticism from the Ethereum community gets it into mess again. (screenshot of Schoedon’s tweet before his quit) Schoedon’s stepping down from his role soon sparked heated debate as well as reflection within the community. Regarding this, dozens of Ethereum contributors worldwide collaboratively wrote an open letter to the Ethereum community to call for end to threats and toxic behavior Regarding this, 8btc got the chance to have a brief conversation with Schoedon on his rage quit and his further plans. Afri said persistent attacks from the community prevented him from normal work, for which he cannot bear to work in such an environment. As a core developer who has been contributing the Ethereum network since 2015, many people from the community hope him to return in the future, but Afri confided he has no plan to come back. Despite his appreciation for bitcoin, he said he might not be needed in it. For this, many guess it is very likely that smaller project like Grin which features high decentralization and privacy may befit him. 8btc: We are really sorry for your withdrawal from Ethereum and really appreciate your contribution. Some blame “interest conflict” for your quit while others may think your positive comments about Polkadot brought you an onslaught of online criticism. The real reason is somehow still unclear. Could you tell us what exactly leads your quit? Afri: I am being attacked for anything I do. I cannot raise technical questions without being downvoted into invisibility. I cannot write proposals without being accused of destroying Ethereum. I cannot merge pull requests without being part of a huge conspiracy. I cannot make conclusions about the roadmap without being guilty for delays. It’s very exhausting for me personally. I am no longer interested in working in such an environment, especially considering that all my work was unpaid and my personal free time (with the exception for the Parity Ethereum client). 8btc: Many people from Ethereum community miss you a lot. Will you come back in the future? Afri: No, but we can still be friends. 8btc: You said on your Twitter that you are seeking to join a new project. How is it going? Many people recommend Bitcoin. Do you ever think about the proposal? Afri: Yes, I love Bitcoin, as much as I loved Ethereum. But I don’t think my contribution is required on such a large, established open-source project. 8btc: Ethereum faces direct competition from Polkadot of which the mainnet will be launched this year. Do you feel worried or stressed since it still needs 2 or 3 years (as you said on Twitter) for Ethereum to move to ETH2.0? Afri: I don’t think Polkadot is a direct competition for Ethereum. Ethereum was always part of the Polkadot vision, they are complementary. I felt worried about the Ethereum 2.0 roadmap for quite a while. I failed to communicate this properly though, I’m sorry for that. Apatheticco contributed reporting.

Top Ethereum Developer Afri Schoedon Just Rage-Quit

Afri Schoedon, a long-time Ethereum contributor, abruptly quit working on the second-largest cryptocurrency. A few days ago, Schoedon tweeted a meme that said “Polkadot delivers what Serenity ought to be. Change my mind.” The meme raised ire on Reddit, and the situation devolved from there until the developer quit early this morning. I did not quit social media, I quit Ethereum. I did not go dark, I just left the community. I am no longer coordinating hard-forks, building testnets, or contributing otherwise. I did not work on Polkadot, I never did, I worked on Ethereum. I did not hate Ethereum, The post Top Ethereum Developer Afri Schoedon Just Rage-Quit appeared first on CCN

Afri Schoedon, One Of Ethereum’s Core Developer, Quits on Social Media After Being Trolled

Ethereum core developer Afri Schoedon recently took to Twitter to announce that he would be going off all social media handles. Until further notice, you can reach me via might-not-reply@5chdn.co, on Telegram using changing handles, and on Parity's Riot/Github. I will no longer respond on Gitter, Skype, Discord, Slack, Wire, Twitter, and Reddit. — Afri (@5chdn) February 17, 2019 Although this incident seems to have come out of nowhere, it was sparked by Schoeden comparing Ethereum against an upcoming project called Polkadot. The developer, among other things, shilled the latter while FUDing about the former. He said: “From a legacy chain client developer perspective, this will be a hell of a task to maintain the $ETH 1.x chain for another 2 or 3 years. From a d-app or contract developer perspective, projects like *#*Polkadot will be much more interesting because you can already use them in 2019.” Hudson Jameson, the co-founder at Oaken Innovations was very disappointed in the Ethereum community, blaming them for chasing away ‘one of our best contributors for the dumbest reasons'. I'm so angry and disappointed in the Ethereum community. You ran out one of our best contributors for the dumbest reasons. More people should have spoken up in support and there needs to be less vitriol. https://t.co/eClG1q1f9N — Hudson Jameson (@hudsonjameson) February 17, 2019 This sparked an interesting conversation which was joined by the likes of Vitalik and Jackson Palmer. Another discussion saw people asking about the identity of Schoedon. A user responded saying, “An “ETH” lead developer who has been funded by ETH”, “But doing other things like Polkadot and undermining ETH.” To which the developer responded saying he was not working on Polkadot. Ethereum community wasn't very pleased with his statement, calling him out as the ‘Judas' of Ethereum on Twitter and Reddit, and claiming that there is a ‘conflict of interest.' Founder of Akomba Labs said: “I remember back in 2018 end of October, just hours after that sync bug was found in Serenity, you immediately called No Serenity in 2018. And then you made sure in the dev meeting to it was delayed to 2019, despite others claiming that the bug is easily fixable. It occurred back to me that there is an obvious conflict of interest in your position, (even if rightfully) delaying Ethereum but working for polkadot. In light of that, this tweet boasting polkadot’s progress and criticizing Ethereum’s speed seems particularly unfortunate.” However, people like Yaz Khoury came out in defense of Afri: This mob behavior against Afri and @ParityTech is the result of toxic tribalism that haunted the space for a long time. Ethereum is a technology with many implementations and visions: Main network, Classic network, Polka Dot, and ETH 2.0 The diversity of networks is powerful. — Yaz Khoury (@Yazanator) February 18, 2019 Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), XRP (Ripple), and BCH Price Analysis Watch (Feb 18th)

According to a tweet from their official Twitter handle, Tether plans to shortly move 400 million Tether USDt as part of its Omni authorized but not issue pool to the issuance address in order to burn/revoke them. Tether will shortly move 400m Tether USDt as part of its Omni authorized but not issue pool to the issuance address in order to burn/revoke them. — Tether (@Tether_to) September 16, 2019 Tether Minted 300 million USDT Few Days Ago Few days ago, Tether took to Twitter to inform its users that it was coordinating with a third party to perform a chain swap. This was planned in order to convert some tokens from their original Omni to an Erc 20 protocol. At the time of the initial announcement, 300 million Tether USDt was announced to have been minted for the swap. However, these conversions took place few days ago as Tether promised the token swap wouldn’t disrupt the total supply. In few hours Tether will coordinate with a 3rd party to perform a chain swap (conversion from Omni to ERC20 protocol) for 300M USDt. Tether total supply will not change during this process. — Tether (@Tether_to) September 12, 2019 Whale Alert, a twitter account dedicated to alerting the community of big cryptocurrency transactions, noted the coinage described above in a tweet published on Sept. 12. As per a second tweet submitted as an answer to the first one, Whale Alert offered an explanation of the type of transaction: “This USDT mint is part of a swap. The corresponding burn on Omni has not taken place yet.” And finally, Tether is burning the Omni Tether that was already converted to ERC20.
