ETH core developer Afri Schoedon quits social media

Ethereum core developer Afri Schoedon took to Twitter today to announce that he will no longer respond on Gitter, Skype, Discord, Slack, Wire, Twitter and Reddit.

Due to the ongoing online criticism directed at his person, the Ethereum core developer Afri Schoedon decided to take a step back from all social media channels.

Hudson Jameson, from the Ethereum foundation and co-founder at Oaken Innovations, tweeted to his 12K followers that he was very dissapointed in the Ethereum community, blaming them for chasing away 'one of our best contributors for the dumbest reasons'.

Afri Schoedon’s made a remark on Twitter, where he compared Ethereum scaling technology Serenity and blockchain interoperability protocol Polkadot.

'Polkadot delivers what Serenity ought to be', he said.

The tweet has since then been deleted, as are all of his other messages since July 2017, except for the two he posted explaining his future absence from social media.

Clearly the 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.'

The Ethereum Classic Cooperative Yaz Khoury, came to the defence of Afri Schoedon by stating that this mob behavior against Afri and ParityTech is the result of toxic tribalism that has been haunting the cryptocurrency space for a long time.
