Charles Hoskinson says that he won’t be giving any more interviews if he gets called the Ethereum co-founder. In the latest Cardano news today, we take a closer look at his statement.
Charles Hoskinson says that people should know him as the co-founder of IOHK (Input Output Hong Kong) and not to get him associated with Ethereum. In a recent Twitter post, he said that the doesn’t want people to refer to him as the co-founder of Ethereum. Hoskinson was on the team that worked on Ethereum and was still there once it became the second-largest blockchain-based platform. However, he stated that he doesn’t want to be referred to as the ETH co-founder.
Could you guys just once refer to me as the CEO of IOHK and a founder of Cardano? Honestly, no more interviews if you keep dropping the E word. https://t.co/fuQavlJ8hU

IOHK is a company that started with Jeremy Wood back in 2015 and it aims to create peer-to-peer innovations that provide decentralized services. While IOHK is doing a lot of research on the tools that are needed to improve the architecture of the cryptocurrencies, the two projects that are the most popular in the organization are Cardano and Ethereum Classic. He also argued that he spent half of the year working on Ethereum while most of his efforts have been spent on IOHK:
“I started IOHK back in 2015. We have over 240 employees in more than 40 countries, government contracts, grants from the EU, built several cryptocurrencies, have the largest CC research group in the world with more than 60 papers. Beats six months at Ethereum.”
Taking it a step further, Hoskinson changed his Reddit username and now goes under the name IOGCharles. He even provided cryptographic proof from his PGP email key. Some members of the community blamed him that he uses his titles selectively. They asserted that he was referring to himself as the CEO of IOHK, founder of Cardano and Ethereum, altogether.
IOHK established a new Cardano research center at the University of Wyoming after receiving a donation of $500,000 in the ADA cryptocurrency. The center will feature the new Plutus development facility which provides the blockchain developers with a new laboratory for writing code in Cardano’s smart contract language along with new tools and resources that will experiment with new solutions. Wyoming is a very attractive destination for the US-based crypto companies that want to take the crypto-friendly legislation of the state that formally recognized digital assets and provides financial services to companies.
