Hoskinson described the stake pool operation (SPO) community as the backbone of Cardano in a series of tweets on August 20 while also acknowledging flaws in Cardano infrastructure.
The tweets are a response to Hoskinson's previous statements, in which he reacted to critics who claimed there is a malfunction in the Vasil hard fork version 1.35.2.
He was involved in debates with Cardano supporters who claimed that IOHK, Cardano's parent company, had failed to bring the SPOs along and that turning the testnet would be a waste of time.
However, the engagement did not go down well with everyone, and Hoskinson apologized. According to him, the entire community has been working tirelessly over the last few years to strike a balance between user experience, security, and speed of delivery.
He discussed the insufficiency of a community-based organization and the fragmented community-building strategy. While these issues are being addressed, he stated it would take time.
The tweet's crux is his apology for failing to respond appropriately to claims that the Cardano testnet is damaged.
"I could have chosen a different approach," Hoskinson wrote. I'm sorry that I didn't. Finally, those who know me understand exactly where I'm coming from. I despise seeing these and know firsthand the damage they cause."
"That doesn't change the fact that you're all family members who chose to be here. "I feel like I let you down, and I apologize," he added.
Vasil Upgrade will mark the end of an era
On the other hand, Hoskinson stated that Vasil would mark the end of an era on Cardano. A more integrated structure, new governance processes, faster advancement, and other advantages will characterize the next era.
While the Vasil hard fork will bring an end to an era, Cardano enthusiasts are eager to learn when it will go live. The Vasil hard fork has been postponed twice.
