Charles Hoskinson, the co-founder of Ethereum and current CEO of IOHK, recently appeared as a guest on the Ivan on Tech podcast and revealed the progress of the Cardano blockchain.
Since IOHK released the “Cardano whiteboard and overview with Charles Hoskinson” video in October 2017, the company introduced major improvements to the platform, and Hoskinson was there to give the public more insight into the company’s roadmap.Hoskinson Provides More Insight Into Cardano’s History and Mission Source: Youtube interview screenshot
