Ethereum co-founder Fabian Vogelsteller’s denial of Charles Hoskinson’s contribution to the ethereum project sparked controversy.
In a recent tweet, Vogelsteller claimed that Hoskinson “hasn’t actually built anything for Ethereum to my knowledge” and should therefore be removed from the Ethereum founder’s photo.
Vogelsteller went on to clarify that his comments did not intend to offend anyone, but were merely statements of fact. He was involved with Ethereum before the network was launched and knows “who contributed what when”.
Correct this picture slightly:@VitalikButerin is the founder of Ethereum, so he doesn’t count. @IOHK_Charles Was never really the founder of Ethereum. As far as I know, he has built almost nothing for Ethereum. He happened to be in the right place, hanging… https://t.co/zHFV4zLANR

Hoskinson expressed his thoughts on the matter on Twitter. He seemed to take Vogelsteller’s comments lightly, sarcastically thanking them for their value and contribution to him. Hoskinson also noted that Switzerland has not yet “realized ether,” suggesting that he has a more important role in the project than Vogelsteller suggested.
Hoskinson also took the opportunity to promote his current project, Cardano, calling it a “very interesting project.” While his comments were clearly aimed at criticizing Vogelsteller, they also highlighted the fact that Hoskinson has turned his attention to other projects since his work on ethereum.
The dispute between Vogelsteller and Hoskinson highlights the sometimes contentious nature of the cryptocurrency industry. As these projects continue to evolve, there will inevitably be disagreements about who contributed what and who should take credit for the success of the various projects. While such disputes can be frustrating for those involved, they also help keep the industry vibrant and innovative.
