Caution in Interpreting Revelations

Hoskinson urged caution in interpreting Nerayoff's disclosures, highlighting the complexity of the situation and cautioning against making hasty judgments based on partial information.

Hope for Reconciliation and Unity

Despite past conflicts, Hoskinson expressed hope for interoperability and collaboration within the crypto space. He emphasized the personal toll of the disputes and called for unity in the crypto community. He wished Nerayoff well in his search for truth and urged everyone to move forward.
