IOHK was founded back in 2015 by Charles Hoskinson and Jeremy Wood as a technology company that wants to use peer-to-peer innovations to provide financial services to the world population that does not have access to them.
IOHK wrote on its official website about their goal:
“We are an engineering company that builds cryptocurrencies and blockchains for academic institutions, government entities and corporations. We are a decentralized company that loves small, innovative teams forming and executing ideas that cause cascading disruption.”
At the time of writing this article, Cardano is the 11th largest digital currency in the market. As reported by CoinMarketCap, Cardano has a market capitalization of $2.41 billion and a price per coin of $0.093. In the last 24 hours, the virtual currency grew just 1.67%.
We have written a few days ago at UseTheBitcoin that Charles Hoskinson could be working with a sneaker company. However, he didn’t provide any information about that yet. At the same time, Mr. Hoskinson is going to continue visiting other countries and meet with important figures and leaders to keep expanding the Cardano network and blockchain. The next steps for Hoskinson include Uganda, Israel, the United States, South Korea and Indonesia. Until now, he has visited over 52 different jurisdictions and countries talking about Cardano and its potentialities.
