Who is he and how he got in Ethereum?
Charles Hoskinson was born in Hawaii but was raised in Colorado. He wanted to be mathematician before he got bored of his profession and started taking interest in Bitcoin. One day Anthony Di Iorio introduced him to Ethereum and Vitalik because he already had experience raising money in an early version of decentralized exchange.
He joined the team and was named CEO in December 2013 having an important role in setting up the Swiss Foundation and the legal framework. He was pro making ETH a pro-profit corporation which was not greatly accepted by the team so ETH team showed him the exit door.
Hoskinson decided to support Ethereum classic after that and also launched Cardano. He is also conviced that Cardano will be the real Ethereum killer 🤣. And the thing that succeeds in bringing decentralized applications 🤣He also loves to talk and needs to learn to not to talk.
