Below is a snapshot of the confirmation.

In the Telegram group, there has been alot of FUD and anxiety over whether Elaine will be building a competitor. The admin confirmed that Elaine was just taking a 2 year leave from Cornell. Here’s the response from the admin in the Telegram group Thunder team thus far, and thus far there has been no official announcement on Elaine’s departure->

“I’m working with Chris to publish an official announcement. We’ll have something out when we’re ready to publish it. In the meantime, please know: 

1- ThunderCore is not a scam. 

2- Yes, it sucks that Elaine is gone, but it’s not as bad as you think

3- True, on a scale of 1-10, our communication with the community is like a 3. Maybe 2. Okay, fine, a 1.

4- We’re committed to the decentralized vision of ThunderCore

5- We emphathize with all token holders regarding price.”

Additionally, in a separate Jinse (Chinese media) article, the Thunder team confirmed with the reporters that the Pala project will continue and will deliver on time despite Elaine’s planned departure.
