Anthony Di Iorio, the co-founder of Ethereum and CEO of blockchain company Decentral and Jaxx wallet said in an interview that he believes in the potential of Cardano (ADA) and Polkadot (DOT). Notably, both the projects are led by the other Ethereum co-founders such as Cardano founder Charles Hoskinson and Polkadot’s current CEO Gavin Wood.
“Most of my stuff is in the top few things, Ether, Bitcoin, Cardano, Polkadot. I like Cosmos as well. Now I’ve kind of fallen back to just simplicity. I’m in a number of different projects, but the majority of my stuff is in the top projects. I’m a big fan of Polkadot, I’m a big fan of Cardano”
Di Iorio joined the Ethereum development team soon after meeting Ethereum Founder Vitalik Buterin at a Bitcoin conference in 2012 along with Cardano founder Charles Hoskinson and Polkadot’s current CEO Gavin Wood. He soon left the company to start his own Toronto-based blockchain company Decentral and crypto wallet Jaxx.
Di Iorio acknowledges that having known both Hoskinson and Gavin Wood back in the Ethereum days, he was able to see their potential and their dedication to their respective projects.
In addition, Di Iorio says he is a real big fan of both Charles Hoskinson and Gavin Wood:
“Big fan of Charles, let’s say that. You know, taking some different approaches in the way that they’re doing things, much more on the academic side of what he’s done and bringing stuff forward. Real big fan of Gavin Wood “Knowing those guys from the days back at Ethereum and knowing their drive and knowing their competitiveness and their smarts – I was able to see those projects for the last few years and know that they were gonna get to where they’ve gotten up to.”
