The critics from a top-end Bitcoin developer Peter Todd towards Ethereum came as the annual Ethereum-organized devcon started on October 8.

In particular, Todd commented on the post by a respectful Twitter account Internet Archive that had published a video clip from the ongoing Ethereum conference.

He called Ethereum a ‘scammy project’, a ‘massive stock offering’ and stated that Vitalik Buterin and other co-founders had lied to the investors about its capabilities.

This was supported by another member of the crypto community, apparently, harboring a grudge against Ethereum.

Obviously, this stand between Bitcoin Core devs and Ethereum devs has been going for a long time. A tweet by an ETH core developer from last year rebukes BTC devs for forgetting their actual duties in favour of criticizing Ethereum.
