• Hayden Adams, founder of Uniswap, believes that people who root to have crypto shut down are “incredibly cringe”.
• He suggests that instead of opposing technology and infringing on people’s rights, opposers should let people do what they want and chill.

Cryptocurrency and blockchain technology has been met with both excitement and trepidation in equal measure. While many governments and financial institutions have embraced the new technology, there are still some who remain firmly in opposition, looking to shut it down. On the other side of the debate are those who are staunch supporters of the technology and are doing their best to promote and spread its use.
One of these people is Hayden Adams, the founder of Uniswap, who recently took to Twitter to express his frustrations with those who are looking to have crypto shut down. In a tweet posted on January 26, Hayden said that people rooting for crypto to be shut down are “incredibly cringe”. He went on to emphasize that no one has forced anybody to use crypto, buy coins, or keep up with the latest events in the industry, and that no one is asking for the “dumb” global fiat system to be shut down either.
Hayden argued that instead of opposing technology and infringing on people’s rights, opposers should instead let people do what they want and chill. He suggested that by doing this, everyone can benefit from the potential of cryptocurrency and blockchain technology, and that it’s important for everyone to work together in order to make it a success.
Hayden’s comments come in response to the so-called ‘no-coiners’ – individuals who are against crypto, hold no coin, or show no desire to participate – who have been shooting down blockchain and crypto proponents. This includes billionaire Warren Buffet and economist Nouriel Roubini, nicknamed Dr. Doom, who have been vocal critics of the technology. In the aftermath of the FTX collapse, Roubini said that Binance’s CEO, Changpeng Zhao, was a “ticking time bomb”, and that he was surprised that Binance had not yet been shut down.
Despite the criticism, supporters of cryptocurrency and blockchain technology remain firm in their belief that it is here to stay. Hayden believes that it is important to allow people to make their own decisions, and that it is wrong to oppose technology just because it is new and unfamiliar. He believes that by working together, everyone can benefit from the potential of cryptocurrency and blockchain technology, and that it should be allowed to flourish.
