Tokyo FinTech Meetup #47 - Cardano with Charles Hoskinson


Charles will be back in Tokyo in June! Following the IOHK Summit in Miami in April, there will be quite a few new developments to discuss.

Charles Hoskinson, co-founder of Ethereum and founder of Cardano, does not need an introduction. But then we will do one anway (Japanese follows English):

Charles Hoskinson is a Colorado-based technology entrepreneur and mathematician. He attended Metropolitan State University of Denver and University of Colorado Boulder to study analytic number theory before moving into cryptography through industry exposure.

His professional experience includes founding three cryptocurrency-related start-ups – Invictus Innovations, Ethereum and IOHK – and he has held a variety of posts in both the public and private sectors. He was the founding chairman of the Bitcoin Foundation’s education committee and established the Cryptocurrency Research Group in 2013.

His current projects focus on education people about cryptocurrency, being an evangelist for decentralization and making cryptographic tools easier to use for the mainstream. This includes leading the research, design and development of Cardano, a third-generation cryptocurrency that launched in September 2017.


Invictus Innovations、Ethereum、IOHK と 3 社の暗号通貨関連企業のスタートアップ実績があり、米国内外において公共団体や民間団体のさまざまなポストに就任。また、ビットコイン財団教育委員会の初代委員長でもあり、2013 年に Cryptocurrency Research Group を設立している。
現在は暗号通貨に関する教育に主軸を置き、分散型テクノロジーのエバンジェリストとして、暗号ツールをメインストリーム層により使いやすく活用するプロジェクトに取り組んでいる。2017 年 9 月にスタートした第 3 世代の暗号通貨、カルダノの研究および設計開発の主導も、こうした取り組みの一環として行っている。
