Charles Hoskinson: Cardano, Crypto Toxicity & Institutional COLLAPSE

Charles Hoskinson is best known as the creator of Cardano, a top 4 cryptocurrency that has been comfortably in the top 10 for a while now.

But before that, he was a co-founder of Ethereum, he was part of BitShares with Dan Larimer, and he was the creator of the Bitcoin Education Project.

Back in 2014, long before Ethereum had even launched, I first met and interviewed Charles, at a conference in Toronto. Now 7 years later, we reconnected in Mexico at the Satoshi Roundtable, and dived into everything that’s happened since then. Cardano’s meteoric rise, Ethereum’s success, and the shift of Bitcoin culture.

Thanks for chatting with me, Charles!
