The Cardano founder responds to rumors & confirmed that he never worked under the roof of San Francisco’s headquartered fintech firm Ripple (XRP).

Charles Hoskinson is a co-founder of Ethereum & founder of Cardano. He is currently CEO of the Cardano engineering team Input Output Hong Kong Global (IOG). In 2014, Hoskinson left Ethereum because of a dispute with Ethereum core co-founder Vitalik Buterin over the future of the Ethereum blockchain network.

Also, people discovered an old tweet from Vitalik Buterin, where he said that he tried to work as an intern under Ripple but due to Visa restrictions, he failed to reach there.
