Charles Hoskinson is the co-founder and ex-CEO of Ethereum. After leaving Ethereum, Hoskinson founded the Cardano (ADA) project which is meant to be the next generation blockchain whose mission is to make the cryptographic tool easier to use for the mainstream. He has since left the Cardano project and is now leading a new company, Input Output Hong Kong (IOHK).
Surprisingly, Hoskinson does not have a strong following on social media channels: it would be considered average. However, Hoskinson has been apart of two very successful projects and has given him great experience to lead crypto innovators and future industry leaders.
Hoskinson is very present in on social media and in public forums in explaining the blockchain and its implications on the average person’s life. From TEDx talks to crypto summit conferences, Hoskinson is an active industry leader.
When Hoskinson speaks, the topics generally swirl around technical aspects of the blockchain and development but he also provides a clear vision for why the project exists and what its success will mean for the ordinary Joe.
Hoskinson is the co-founder of Ethereum and is presently the CEO of Input Output, a Hong Kong-based blockchain research firm. He was also a founding member of the Cryptocurrency Research Group, which was established in 2013. Hoskison is a bitcoin evangelist, and writes about cryptocurrencies for numerous publications.
