The ongoing drama between two projects built on the Cardano (ADA) blockchain escalated across multiple social media platforms Monday, much to the dismay of the ADA community.

The issues began in April when accelerator program CardStarter announced it would launch its own decentralized exchange or DEX. Shortly thereafter, its founders incentivized investors to provide liquidity for the project on Uniswap in exchange for native CSWAP tokens. The platform’s developers landed an agreement with a third-party DEX called SundaeSwap sometime later, marketing the deal as a “merger” last June. As per the agreement, CardStarter would no longer develop its promised DEX, and would instead provide liquidity to the existing SundaeSwap DEX.

As told by Reddit user “Environmental-Law768”, investors were later promised “great benefits” during a YouTube ask-me-anything session for CSWAP holders in the SundaeSwap DEX. Last week, however, it was revealed that these so-called benefits would simply be a conversion from CSWAP to CardStarter’s native CARDS tokens ($3.14 at time of writing), at a rate of 400:1. Holders who had locked in $15M (at the time of reveal) worth of liquidity on the platform seemed to feel this was a slap in the face, amounting to no meaningful reward for their efforts. Allegations of a rug pull soon followed.

Both SundaeSwap and CardStarter took to social media to place blame over the investor fallout on each other — much to the disapproval of ADA enthusiasts and Cardano founder Charles Hoskinson.
